Live music from Evening Hymns and Anna Atkinson's Mooniture
This week on Bandwidth, meet Anna Atkinson (left): a classically-trained musician turned singer-songwriter turned Stratford Festival performer. You'll hear music from her debut album, Mooniture... and hear about the time she shared the stage with Peter Gabriel!
You'll also hear live music and conversation with Jonas Bonnetta from the band Evening Hymns (right). Their new album, Spectral Dusk, was written by Jonas after losing his father to a rare blood disease three years ago. The album is a beautiful tribute to Jonas' father and works its way through Jonas' grieving process. You'll hear part of the CD release concert at the Great Hall in Toronto.
This week, Steven Page (left, with Meg) takes on the 90 second egg... and you'll hear his cover of a classic Leonard Cohen song!
