On the program for Saturday November 6, 2010

A concert from David Myles - and - a feature on 'Naming The Twins' and their recording 'Sweet Transitions.


Last May David Myles brought his full band to the intimate Hugh's Room in Toronto to celebrate the release of his latest CD Turn Time Off. The packed house that evening was treated to a musical ride with songs that ranged from blues inspired jams to country and gospel influenced sing a longs. The joke of the night was that since CBC was recording the show the intimate audience of Hugh's Room needed to sound more like the Air Canada Center with twenty thousand people - and at times it almost did.

Robbie Smith has been a songwriter, singer and player of instruments all his life - over the years he's written songs for, and appeared on stage with people like Roger Whitaker, Pete Seeger and John Allan Cameron. From the windows of his scenic home outside Shelburne Nova Scotia, his imagination takes flight gathering scenes and circumstances which flow back through his pen and onto the page. Robbie's been a solo Artist most of his life but recently he was struck with the voice of an acquaintance, Kathleen Glauser who he discovered has a fine sense of harmony, rhythm and natural singing ability. Together they decided to do some gigs - under the moniker "Naming The Twins". Through these gigs they came to the attention of Paul Mills, the owner of Borealis Records. Out of all this happenstance came a record - 'Sweet Transitions'
