Celebrating 25 years of Lynn Miles

lynn cassette.jpgTwenty-five years ago, budding Ottawa singer-songwriter Lynn Miles recorded her first cassette in hopes of playing at some summer music festivals.

 

That tape led to a cross-Canada tour, and 10 studio releases later, Lynn is one of Ottawa's (and beyond!) best-loved singer-songwriters.

We're airing the Lynn Miles concert to celebrate Guitar Month, which is happening all November at CBC Music. Click here to check out all the fantastic guitar-related playlist, articles and interviews at CBC Music.

 

In other music news... congratulations to this year's winners at the Canadian Folk Music Awards! The celebrations were held last week in St. John, NB. Among the Ontario winners, Sarnia's veteran harmonica player Mike Stevens took home the first ever "Innovator of the Year" award for foundingthe ArtsCan Circle -- an organization that sends musicians and artists to work with young people in isolated First Nations communities. Click here for a list of the 2012 Canadian Folk Music Award winners.

 

Catch you back here next week for more Ontario music goodness!
