It's a musical weekend and a celebratory week ahead as Canada celebrates its 147th birthday, and Our Ottawa is jumping on that bandwagon.

Host Lucy van Oldenbarneveld talks to musician Lynne Hanson, who is performing at the CBC Canada Day Songwriters' Circle. 

Hanson will be joined by Sally Folk, Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk (winners of CBC Music’s Searchlight 2014) and John MacPhee from the Paper Lions.

You can hear the show live on CBC Radio One on July 1 at noon or watch the show at Major’s Hill Park in Ottawa.  You will also be able to catch the show on Concerts on Demand at CBC Music.
