The Songs Of Nick Drake

Do you love the music of Nick Drake? Ever wish you could have seen him live? Well, unfortunately that is not possible, but you can still check out the gorgeous music he did create and check out some of the artists who are determined to introduce new listeners to his music. The Songs of Nick Drake tour visits Guelph on Friday November 16 2012 for a show at Dublin St United Church.

Featuring Oh Susanna (Suzie Ungerleider), Kevin Kane of The Grapes of Wrath, and the tour’s organizer, British-born Luke Jackson, along with a distinguished backing band featuring guitarist Kurt Swinghammer, drummer Don Kerr (Rheostatics, Ron Sexsmith), and double-bassist Jason Mercer (Bourbon Tabernacle Choir, Ani DiFranco). The string section includes Sahra Featherstone, Alex Cheung, Johan Lotter and Wendy Solomon. There will also be some special guests for the Guelph show including Rich Burnett, Matt Masotti, Amy McCann and David Matheson. The Songs of Nick Drake was first produced by Jackson at Toronto’s Trinity St. Paul’s United Church in November 2010. It was a tribute both to Nick Drake and Robert Kirby, with whom Jackson had collaborated on his last album. Apparently Kirby had planned to fly to Toronto to conduct the string section at a similar concert a year earlier, but passed away unexpectedly a week before the show was to be announced.

To coincide with the tour, Kurt Swinghammer is releasing Two Portraits, a limited edition 12″ single of his version of Nick Drake’s “River Man” backed with a version of Donovan’s “Sunny Goodge Street.” The sleeve features Swinghammer’s painted portrait of Nick Drake.

Behind the Music with Adam Bowman

Guelph-based drummer/percussionist Adam Bowman joins us on the show on November 3 2012 for “Behind the Music”a special feature focusing on the often unsung role of the drummer and rhythm section in popular music.

The Funky Mamas – In The Studio

The Funky Mamas joined us in the studio on October 13 2012 to chat and play songs from their new album “Pickin’ in the Garden”. The CD release concert takes place on Saturday October 20 at the Ignatius Jesuit Centre, just north of Woodlawn Ave on Highway 6. There will be two shows at 1.00 p.m. and 3.30 p.m. Tickets are very reasonably priced at $3 each or $10 for a family (suggested minimum donation) which sounds like an absolute steal. However, I’m sure they would love it if you decided to pay a little more and took a copy of their new CD home with you too!

The Funky Mamas specialize in music for everyone, children, families, even folkies! They feature ‘Mama Tannis’ – Tannis Maynard-Langedijk on guitar, ‘Mama Chantal’ – Chantal von Maydell on fiddle, ‘Mama Kate’ – Kate Vestula on banjo and banjo ukelele and ‘Mama Georgia’ – multi-instrumentalist Georgia Urban on pretty much everything else including the musical saw! Needless to say, they all like to sing. For more information, visit www.thefunkymamas.com.
