Weekend Arts Magazine on March 17-18

Yes, yes, yes … we’ll be playing some Irish music on St. Patrick’s Day, but don’t expect Danny Boy! Chris Brookes will tell you about 2 Irish assassins assigned the task of terminating a British general hiding in St. John’s. Keith Pike tells you about a different British Invasion - the musical kind! Speaking of musicals, Holy Heart High gets into the Disney mood with their production of My Son Pinocchio, director John Rao talks up the value of music in education. Trinity Bay artist Cliff George opens a new exhibit at the Christina Parker Gallery, you’ll hear about that. Liner Notes features the new disc from Jim Fidler, Up That River.

The Weekend Arts Magazine with Mack Furlong airs from 6 to 9:30 island time - 5:30 to 9:00 in parts of Labrador - on Saturday and Sunday mornings on CBC Radio 1.
