Joanna Barker: A Songwriter Grows Up in Public
Joanna is the latest in a series of young singer-songwriters to emerge from Grand Falls-Winsor.
It was another Grand Falls artist, Matthew Hornell, who convinced Joanna to do her first bar gig when she moved to St. John's. Now she's working on her first album.
This Saturday (October 8) Joanna Barker joins us in the CBC studio to play a few songs and tell us about her early adventures in music.
Also this week, the prolific Ian Foster. The St. John's songwriter talks about his latest album, Evening Light. It's his fifth full-length CD in the last five years.
