Playlist: Episode #872, Jan. 17, 2021

Not a lot of new music these days, leaving time to celebrate two beloved Canadian musical institutions. Borealis Records has served the Canadian folk & roots community like no other label over the past 25 years, so it’s with a bit of sadness but a lot of gratitude that we pay tribute to the end of the road for founders Grit Laskin and Bill Garrett. Winnipeg’s beloved Times Change(d) High & Lonesome Club is one of the most important musical breeding grounds in the country (world?) and it celebrates 20 years this week. John Scoles has stared down the end of the road and refused to quit many times and we’re looking forward to the eventual post-COVID resurrection of the club with a look back at some of the amazing moments from the past 20 years.
