The next four shows in our series are all at Capilano College theatre: Ruthie Foster (Friday Feb 15th, 8pm), Harry Manx (Sat Feb 16th, 8pm), Karan Casey Band (Sat Feb 23rd, 8pm), and Black Umfolosi (Sun Feb 24th, 8pm). Tickets for these shows are only available from the Cap College Box Office 604-990-7810. They will all be great shows. We think the first two might be sold out already. The other two shows should still have tickets available. We also think that Parcel O'Rogues ticket holders might be able to get in to those latter two shows on standby if there aren't any spaces left for Parcels at the Box Office.
Caravan Productions present Palestinian oud trio Le Trio Joubran this Saturday at St. James Hall (3214 West 10th Avenue.) Please do not call our Hotline to reserve tickets. It is not our show. For tickets try Highlife records and Rufus' Guitar Shop. For information, visit www.caravanworld.homestead.com
We get back to St. James Hall ourselves on Saturday March 1st for a Contra Dance with The Sybs, and the following night sees the Vancouver debut of the excellent Scots traditional band, Malinky, one of the best young bands around. www.malinky.com. Concert Details
Radio Rogue is still broadcasting with an expanded playlist. I'll probably add some more songs over the next day or two. You can access this streaming radio broadcast by following the instructions on our home page
This Saturday, on my show The Edge On Folk on CITR fm 101.9 and www.citr.ca, I'll be playing new music by Patty Larkin (Whose new CD, Watch The Sky, has just been released on Vanguard Records. Patty will be here on May 4th at St. James Hall.) I'll also feature the debut CD by Vancouver songwriter Kate Reid. Plus some hot middle eastern music in the first hour, and maybe some more new stuff - should I receive any this week!! The show will end a few minutes early to accommodate coverage of the Canadian University Womens Volleyball championships.
Heather Kitching will host The Edge On Folk on Saturday February 24th. Tune in for a live feed from Memphis. I'm not certain about this yet, but we could have live music by The McDades and Kendel Carson via the good folks at Folk Alley dot Com. They are broadcasting live from the Conference. Or I might try sending a stream from my Mac, if I can find some even tastier exclusives for you.
Cheers for now
