* 2013 Vancouver Folk Festival special featuring interviews with legendary blues singer Dalannah Gail Bowen and Tinpan Orange from Melbourne, Victoria *

CJ of Discorder Radio took the time this week to interview members of Tinpan Orange, from Melbourne, Victoria, who are playing the Vancouver Folk Music Festival this weekend.  You can hear his spirited and finely-edited piece at the top of the show.  Thanks CJ for your wonderful contribution!

Legendary blues singer, Dalannah Gail Bowen is a also performing at this weekend’s festival.   Today she phones through to re-visit some of the moments of her extraordinary life story, including her days in the mid-60s Winnipeg scene that included the youthful Neil Young and Randy Bachman.  Dalannah’s commitment to social justice activism is also well documented and today she speaks specifically about her involvement in the recent fight to keep the Rainer Hotel open.

And we welcome CiTR Radio Board Chairperson Janis McKenzie into the studio to help wrap up the show.  Janis has lots to say about her decades-long commitment to this amazing radio station and she shares some fabulous local Vancouver music from past and present.  Come back soon Janis!
