A feature double bill on two new recordings - Ian Sherwood with 'And Now The Fun Begins' and - John Connolly with 'The Wind'


Ian Sherwood has learned a thing or two about music and performance over the last few years. He's been honing his craft as a songwriter and entertainer and has become equally at home in front of a large festival audience or a quiet house concert. His energetic stage show and honest presentation have quickly gained him recognition as a solid performer, lyricist and player and garnered him Music Nova Scotia's 2008 Musician of the Year award. On October 2nd. Ian will be releasing his new recording 'And Now The Fun Begins' with a show at The Company House in Halifax.

On Monday, April 19th, 2010 John Connolly posted this on his blog. "I'm back on PEI after recording last week in Nashville with Brian Ahern. Brian's been in the studio since the late 60's and it and it was really something special to work with him. Together with his long-time engineer, the great Donivan Cowart, we had a real good time making this record. It's a pretty natural recording...acoustic and laid back and I'm really looking forward to putting it out there." Last weekend in Charlottetown John Connolly released that album titled 'The Wind' - On the show this week, John talks about the experience of working with Brian Ahern on that record.
