The infectious and completely original sound of Radio Radio, a hip hop band from Clare, NS , who rap in Chiac, an English-influenced variety of Acadian French, will captivate the audience as we pair them with Xara Choral Theatre. Xara, a twenty voice strong young women's choral ensemble from Halifax, NS, will perform with Radio Radio and pump out a full hour of original, extraordinary sounds.

Mo Kenney, Dylan Guthro and Carleton Stone come together in a songwriters' circle with a twist. They'll share their own songs and sing and perform backup for each other. As well, especially for this performance Mo, Dylan and Carleton will compose brand new songs as a trio of vocalists (a la Peter, Paul and Mary). When three of the regions' hottest talent commodities share the stage, who knows what will happen.

Ben Caplan

March 15 5:05pm on CBC Radio One

March 15 10:00am on CBC Radio 2

March 14 at 4:00am on CBC Download

Rugged, raspy, and roaring with charisma. Halifax's Ben Caplan is to folklore, what smoke is to bourbon. Perfectly coupled. Take the raw energy of this singer/songwriter and add saxophones, brass, percussion and bass, stir in some Balkan rhythms and spice it up with the joy, passion and depth of Klezmer and you've got a sound that truly stands out from the masses.
