Playing tracks by
Eamon McGrath, Leah Barley, AC/DC, Jack Ladder And The Dreamladders, Kirin J Calinan and more.
We kick off a brand new year with a brief retrospective of Eamon McGrath, singer-songwriter. With over 250 songs written and countless tours of Canada and Europe under his belt, Toronto-based (and Edmonton-bred) McGrath is seemingly on path to be one of the greats of Canadian song. Today you can hear a track from his band new record Exile, as well as selections from the 'Peacemaker' and 'Young Canadians' records, which were recorded at JC/DC studios in Vancouver, and also tracks recorded in Edmonton from as far back as 2007.
Next up we are joined by our first special guest of 2015 - Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Leah Barley! Leah will be playing the 'Stranded' Sunday Sessions #4' at the Railway Club on 11 January. She speaks today of her music journey beginning on a fateful day when she was introduced to a rowdy roots jam in Canmore, AB. Leah was a joy to interview and I'm sure you'll be delighted by with her acoustic guitar and banjo renditions of three original songs.
