Cinq à Six in the Summer -- July 28, 2012

In the first part of the show, Quebecois singer-songwriter Jean Leclerc -- better known as Jean Leloup

Born in Quebec, his family moved to Togo and then Algeria which instilled in him a love of African Rhythms and non-western sounds. 

In 2011 he has released his tenth CD, The Last Assassins

This CBC Radio 2 recording from the 2011 Pop Montreal Festival features Jean Leloup and The Assassins at The Rialto Theatre.

In the second part of the show, Ladies of the Canyon: four friends who got together in their living rooms to write and sing songs influenced by their favourite bands - The Eagles, the Band and Fleetwood Mac.

Musicians and songwriters Maia Davies (vocals, guitars, mandolin, keyboards), Senja Sargeant (vocals, guitars, mandolin), Jasmine Bleile (vocals, guitars) and Anna Ruddick (electric and upright bass, vocals) have their distinct tone and personality, but when they come together for harmonies, it's a gorgeous, soaring blend.

This concert was recorded in October 2011 at the Corona Theatre.
