This week on The Open Chord Bill Garrett features Music From Montreal. Specifically, the program looks at singer songwriters that were all based around the Yellow Door Coffee House. Bruce Murdoch, Linda Morrison, Penny Lang, Ellen Shizgal and Lucinda Chodan & Dave Clarke all cut their teeth on the scene around the Yellow Door – the oldest running coffee house in the country. Also this week, music from Tim and Mollie O’Brien and the late, great Jackie Washington. That’s The Open Chord with Bill Garrett – Thursday at 11:00 am, 5:00 pm and 10:00 pm on rtds.ca.
