Next week (May 28th)

We’ve altered our schedule for May 28th. We were tentatively committed to a 90 minute special on Alan Lomax’ Southern Journey recordings but we want to highlight some of the artists appearing at the Westdale Blues & Roots Festival, in Hamilton scheduled for June 1st. It’s planned to be an all day affair. Acts include Harrison Kennedy, Steve Strongman, Alvin Smith, Trickbag and Paul Deslauriers.

We’ll postpone the Lomax special to either June 4th or June 11th.
