There are some exciting events coming up over the next week, and the two biggest are happening at The West End Cultural Centre, and Scott Nolan has a hand in both of them! Next Sunday our pal Corin Raymond heads back to town and he's assembled an amazing band to help bring his latest, Winnipeg made album to life. Also, Scott Nolan and Glenn Buhr are gearing up for a big show called Manitoba Skylines and they dropped by to talk all about their collaboration and the very unique evening they've got planned for lucky attendees on Thursday. All that and still time for some requests and new music!
Today, a sad farewell to one of the biggest influences on my musical development and one of the greatest live performers I've seen, the great John Mann of Spirit of the West. He lost his battle with Alzheimer's this week, but his spirit will live on through the great music that he made. We heard a lot of it on this episode, but there's so much more we couldn't get to. We also heard some great requests, talked about some exciting upcoming shows and spun some great new tunes.
Once again, we've been blessed and will be blessed with some amazing concerts worth talking about, we've got some stellar new music, and an extended look at the songwriting legacy of the great Kris Kristofferson, who played up the road in Fargo this weekend!
