It's a radio version of a macaroni heart for Mom...

Sacha et al.jpgIn honour of Mothers' Day this weekend, Bandwidth is all about the moms -- moms who are musicians, moms who inspire them, and moms who influence our musical tastes (for better or for worse!)

 

This week on the show, we chat with Ottawa musician/composer/actress/mom extraordinaire Sacha Gabriel (left, with son Shea and daughter Tate) about her many projects -- including her band My Tiny Circus -- and Shea and Tate weigh in on some on them, too. Sacha just finished composing the music for kids' e-book for iPad called Flora's Forest. It comes out at the end of the month -- you can check out the Facebook page here.

 

You'll also hear from Lucas Haneman and Kid Koala about how their moms influenced their musical careers... and hear a story from Emm Gryner about when she gave birth to her son, Ronan (you can find her awesome blog here).

 

We've also got a bouquet of new tracks for you (three can be a bouquet, right?) from Royal Wood, Jarvis Church and Scarlett Jane.

 

This weekend might be special, but next weekend is MAY LONG -- and we'll be getting in the long weekend spirit with a mix of tunes perfect for the dock -- or the patio. Feel free to send me your favourite summer/long weekend tunes at bandwidth@cbc.ca.

 

You'll also see I'm now adding stings in the playlist (that's radio-speak for those quick musical bridges between segments on the show) in case there's a track you want to hear more of -- thanks to listener Angelina for that suggestion!

 

See you next week,

 

Meg.
