The week on The Open Chord, it’s music from Vermont and Quebec. The Province of Québec and the State of Vermont share much more than a common border and the production of great maple syrup. On this week’s program host Bill Garrett features music both new and traditional from the Green Mountain State and La belle province. Artists include Kristina Stykos, Yves Lambert, Robert Resnik, Penny Lang, Dave Clarke and Michelle Choiniere. Also on this week’s show some vintage radio from the late great Max Ferguson with some classic Rawhide. 11:00am, 5:00pm and 10:00pm EDT on rtds.ca.
