This week on The Open Chord host Bill Garrett features new music from Richard Thompson, Stephen Fearing, Winnipeg’s Dry Bones and Toronto’s New Country Rehab. Also, a unique mix of Inuktitut country swing, throat singing, and blues from Iqaluit’s The Jerry Cans, and something new for us at The Open Chord – comedy from Hudson Quebec’s Lorne Elliott. The Open Chord – Thursdays at 11:00am, 5:00pm and 10:00pm on rtds.ca
The Andy Frank Show is a rebroadcast of last week’s two hour program featuring the Good Lovelies. Andy blames Toronto’s four-day/four-night Folk Alliance International conference for the rerun.
