Roots Radio Thursday March 21
This week on The Open Chord Bill Garrett looks back at the lives of three key figures that were lost to the Canadian folk community in the last few weeks. They’re Tam Kearney, who started and ran the iconic Toronto folk Club Fiddler’s Green as well as being a member of the incomparable and wacky Friends of Fiddler’s Green folk group, Chopper McKinnon a friend to folk musicians and songwriters for four decades and who hosted Canadian Spaces the longest running folk show in the country, and finally Max Ferguson who played all sorts of folk and world music on CBC Radio as well as creating the wonderful Rawhide. That, and a lot of great music this week on The Open Chord on rtds.ca. Listen at 11:00 AM, 5:00 PM and 10:00 PM EDT.
