Wow, was that Grand Cariboo Opry good. ‘Nuff said.

This weekend marks the 30th anniversary of the legendary Band’s legendary Last Waltz. That group’s impact on music was huge, so we looked at some of their work and some great Band covers.

And, some musical birthdays, including our pal Geoff Berner, the late great Stan Rogers, and Randy Newman.

More celebration of the upcoming Grand Cariboo Opry. And, some tunes by my two current musical fixations: Tom Waits (in anticipation of his upcoming 3 CD set), and Gram Parsons (a belated birthday celebration.)

Christmas came early with the announcement of the brilliant Grand Cariboo Opry show coming up at the WECC. With so many of our favourites on board, we just have to celebrate with some songs. We were also joined by the leader of the whole cavalcade, the Legendary Heart himself, Barney Bentall.

Today is the birthday of two great Canadian singer/songwriters, Sarah Harmer and ol' Neil Young, so we had to celebrate that with some covers, guest appearances, and classics.
