Bandwidth heads North

Kalle photo2.JPGThis weekend is the Northern Ontario Music and Film Awards (aka the NOMFAs) at Laurentian University in Sudbury. And, to celebrate the great music coming out of the region, we're zoning in on some great Northern Ontario artists.

 

You'll hear a great interview with Sault Ste. Marie's Kalle Mattson (the most NOMFA nom'ed group from the Soo and sitting in studio on your left) -- be sure to check out their music video for "Thick As Theives", which went viral earlier this year.

We've also got tracks from Faraway Neighbours, Sunday Wilde and Frank Deresti and the Lake Effect. And, if that weren't enough, there's also a tasty 90 second egg with Cody Allen and some live music from Timmins' own Cindy Doire.

 

A big congratulations to Emma Godmere from Toronto and Paul Vanwyck from Owen Sound for winning the Eight and Half records in our Record Store Day contest -- they're on their way in the mail!

 

***GREAT LIVE MUSIC ALERT!!!***

 

If you're in Ottawa this coming week, be sure to check out the Stage Name Summit songwriters' circle at the Ottawa Writers Festival. Performers include Oh Susanna, Snailhouse, and Masia One -- and, even better, it's hosted by All In a Day host (and Bandwidth alum) Alan Neal. It's happening the evening of Monday, April 30th -- click the link above for more details.

 

Have you followed us on Twitter yet? On Facebook? No? You should really get on that.

 

Have a great weekend, and see you next week!

 

Meg.
