It doesn’t get much more Canadian than this: four seasons. Love ’em or hate ’em, we can consider ourselves fortunate to have four very distinct seasons in our Canadian climate. Another typical Canadian trait is that we have an amazing DIY music scene here and we’re all so darned nice to each other!
Shannon Rose & the Thorns exemplify the Canadian spirit with their “Seasons” CD. It is a compilation of four EPs, one for each season in which they were written and recorded. In order to pull them all together in the form of a full-length double CD, the band reached out to friends and fans in, what turned out to be, a highly successful crowd-funding campaign. Creative. Innovative. Introspective. Delightful. Hot/ Cold/ Warm/ Cool.
We are pleased to welcome (once again) Shannon Rose to the CHUO studio today at 5 p.m. The band performs at the Blacksheep Inn Sunday afternoon at 4:30 pm
As if that wasn’t enough, Ottawa will be graced by the presence of 3 past Polaris Prize nominees (F*cked Up, Yamantaka/Sonic Titan and A Tribe Called Red). I’ll be sure to spin some of their tunes and much more tonight.
Kick start your weekend with me from 5 to 6 pm on CHUO 89.1 FM in Ottawa or on-line at www.CHUO.FM
Host/Producer, Hop The Fence
