Remixes, Polaris long list and Kelly Sloan live in studio
It's a packed hour this week on Bandwidth! First, we chat with Andrew MacPherson, the brains behind Guelph-based world fusion band Eccodek. Andrew (left) explains how he fuses different sounds together (and makes it sound great!) and what it was like to hand his tracks over to other producers to be remixed for Eccodek's latest album, Remixtasy.
You can catch Eccodek live on June 22nd at the Summer City Street Party at Guelph Market Square -- they're also opening the Peak to Shore Festival in Blue Mountain Village on July 13th.
We've also got a special Fathers' Day 90-second egg this week, courtesy of singer-songwriter Craig Cardiff and his daughter, Rowan (R to L). Find out who Rowan thinks should play her dad in the movie of his life (hint: he's green). Check out Craig's Facebook page for his upcoming shows.
The Polaris Prize long list came out this week -- the top 40 albums of the year (determined by a jury) are competing for the title of Canadian album of the year. The winner(s) win a cool $30 000 -- and, of course, loads of street cred. Ontario artists who were nominated include Bahamas, Feist, Kathleen Edwards, A Tribe Called Red, the Great lake Swimmers, and Cold Specks... click here for the full list.
And we've got some great live music for you from Ottawa's Kelly Sloan. Kelly Sloan has just been named the 2102 Ottawa Folk Fest Galaxie Rising Star award recipient -- which means she'll be the first act on at the Folk Fest, warming up the stage for great acts like Matt Mays.
Kelly's right now on tour around Ontario -- find the full listing on her website.
A big congratulations to Trish Clarkson from Peterborough and Bridget Roussy from Ottawa -- they're heading to Jazzfest FREE, courtesy of Bandwidth! Their names were drawn in last week's contest.
And that wraps things up this week -- be sure to tune in next week to hear our special Aboriginal Day episode!
