It's a big day at the Sunset Saloon as we celebrate Lady Jaine's birthday, so this one's pre-recorded and dedicated to that very special, lovely lady with birthday and love songs galore! We've also got a bunch of exciting upcoming shows, a pile of great new music, and a few memories of this year's amazing Static Roots Festival!
This episode is another one of those timeless standby episodes that you might hear again sometime when I can't make it down to the station and I'm not able to provide something all-new. Hopefully, you'll agree that the music in here is so great that you won't mind revisiting this episode down the road.
This episode is called the Special Guest Spectacular because every song features some kind of special guest sitting in with another artist or band. Every once in a while you catch one artist singing backup or doing a duet or playing a solo on someone else's song, and this show collects a whole bunch of those. We also dip our toes into the extensive well of special guest appearances by the Canadian and American queens of such appearances!
Note: Unfortunately there are a few little audio hiccups that appeared during recording. Technical difficulties are entirely ours.
Today a fun episode where we preview the 4th annual Static Roots Festival taking place July 12-13 in Oberhausen, Germany! Our longtime friend and supporter Dietmar Leibecke joins us to go through every act on the bill this year and talk a bit about the magic!
A pile of new music today, including an exclusive new song from Matt Epp's upcoming album, our usual roundup of great requests, memories of a fine show this weekend, and we look ahead to the upcoming reunion of one of my favourite live bands of all time!
