I meant to send this out last night, but was embroiled in magazine production and other PR duties so had to stop and get some sleep first!
1. Little Miss Higgins, Friday October 4th, 8pm, St. James Hall (3214 West 10th Avenue)
Fresh from the prairies with a hot new CD and a bigger band than last time she was here, Little Miss Jolene Higgins returns to The Rogue House tonight! Her scintillating blend of Old Time Country Blues with Jazz and Folk inflections will have the dance floor rocking tonight! No doubt about that! Bring some clean laundry to hang on the line and celebrate her classic song Bargain Shop Panties. It's all good clean fun, I tell you ...
2. The Edge On Folk, Saturday 8am to noon, CiTR fm 101.9 and www.citr.ca
Please join me for the very best in What's New, What's Hot and What's Rogue in the wide world of Roots, Folk and, well, World Music (whirled music?) On tomorrow's show I'll focus on Dar Williams (who makes a rare local appearance next Wednesday at The Rogue,) and give a brief preview of next week's Celtic Colours Festival (Ok, it's in Cape Breton, but I'm going!) There will be new music from the likes of Lynn Miles, Lydia Hol, The Greencards, Valerie June, Brishen, The Full English (featuring Martin Simpson, Seth Lakeman, Fay Hield & Nancy Kerr,) Linda Thompson, Pokey LaFarge, Si Kahn & The Looping Brothers (a great Bluegrass band from Germany,) Lucy Ward, De Temps Antan, Matuto, The Sojourners, Martha Scanlan, Vasen, Elephant Revival, David Bromberg, and so much more! You can tune in live on CiTR fm 101.9 in Vancouver, Telus TV channel 7023 across B.C. and Alberta, and www.citr.ca wherever the internet can find you. Podcasts of past shows are available here. Tomorrow's show will be "up" by Saturday evening.
3. Photo Gallery Updated!
I've uploaded some photos from recent shows on my Photo Gallery. At last! A new home for my photos!! Have a look and let me know what you think.
That's about it for now.
See you tonight!
