Veterans and Rookies in the CBC-MusicNL Songwriters' Circle

Kim Stockwood's first session for CBC Radio dates back to the early 1990s.

Matthew Hornell and Andrew James O'Brien are of a much younger generation, each arriving on the local music scene in the last couple of years.

Together, they make an outstanding quartet for the 2011 CBC-MusicNL Songwriters' Circle.

Matthew, Andrew, Kim, and Ron shared the stage on a Sunday afternoon in October, at the Delta Hotel in St. John's.

It was a highlight of the 2011 Music Newfoundland and Labrador Awards weekend, and you'll hear the results this Saturday (July 14) on the Performance Hour.

You'll hear award-winning songs from all four, wrapping up with Kim Stockwood's emotional rendering of a classic from the Ron Hynes songbook.
