East Coast Sessions 2012

This program features the best of CBC Maritimes East Coast Sessions performances of the year.

East Coast Sessions began as a limited regional television series and is now produced for radio, television and online. This past year six concerts were recorded at CBC Halifax. This proposal is for a one hour program highlighting the best performances from some of those concerts.

The program will include songs from Jimmy Rankin, multiple ECMA and Juno award nominee; emerging singer/songwriter Ria Mae who just picked up an ECMA award for Pop Recording of the Year; Andy Brown a Galaxie Rising Star winner whose album reached #1 on iTunes Canada; Modern Grass, a blend of jazz, bluegrass, gypsy and folk; and Caravan, a hiphop trio whose roots run the gamut of rock, jazz and soul.

The program is hosted by CBC's Shauntay Grant who presents the songs and brief interview clips from the performers. All performances were recorded in CBC Maritimes' Studio H and Studio 1 by the famous Halifax production team.
