There’s something so powerful about the way different voices can blend into one sweet sound. And today, TTBTGH presents some of the sweetest harmonies around.
First up, a visit by my good friends, the internationally renowned, Juno award winning Wailin’ Jennys. They’ve come a long way in a short time, and I’ve been along for the ride every step of the way. I’ve had the pleasure of having the girls in a number of times, but this was the first time with the new Jenny, Annabelle. We chatted about the Juno, the past, the future, and even Disco Grover. It’s always a bit silly when the girls stop by, and this was certainly no exception, but it was also very interesting and enlightening also.
In hour 2, a look back at one of my favourite in-studio interviews of all time. Last December Michael Johnston and Reid Jamieson came in and totally wowed me. I was already a big fan of them individually, so there was no reason to expect anything to improve upon my already high opinion of them, but hearing the way their voices blended was pure magic. In my eyes, this is a combo that deserves to be recorded and heard by all, and even if they don’t make it onto CD in the near future, at least I have a recording of their great live visit where they sang and played and talked for almost a full hour, and in honour of Reid’s upcoming visit to Winnipeg, we took a listen back to this magical appearance.
