April 27th: Maple Hill, Northern Scene, Grassroots Festival

Hi you!

I've returned from a chilly but warmly received visit to the motherland: Saskatchewan. The Junos were there last weekend (as you may have heard) and I was a busy producer bee doing this video.
If you want to enter a contest on the show tomorrow, to win tickets to the CBC Music Festival May 25th, you'd better click that link above...
I'll tell you about two different festivals happening in Ottawa this weekend: Ottawa Grassroots Festival, which I'm MC'ing Saturday night, and Northern Scene featuring over 250 fabulous artists from Canada's North.

Also on the show: bluegrass from Maple Hill, Nunavut fiddle from Colin Adjun, and truly man-made music from Jean-Paul de Roover of Thunder Bay. Plus Elisapie, Better Weather, Suzie Vinnick, Mackenzie Blues Band, Gentlemen Husbands, and Amanda Rheaume

Cue the claps! See you on the radio...
