A Tribute to Frank Loesser

loesser_250.jpgThis week join Margaret Gallagher for an encore performance from CBC Studio One. Last summer on the anniversary of Frank Loesser's 100th birthday, some of Vancouver's finest musicians paid tribute to his amazing career. This American composer and songwriter left us with over 800 wonderful songs including hits like Luck be a Lady Tonight and Heart and Soul along with Broadway musicals like Guys and Dolls. We'll have a special concert by the Mike Allen Quartet, featuring singers Karin Plato and Adam Thomas.
