*Featuring First Nations folk singer Andy Mason LIVE in the CiTR studio *

We are joined this week by a very extra special guest – Ottawa-based Mohawk First Nations singer-songwriter Andy Mason!  Andy has strong connections to British Columbia as he previously lived in Vancouver for 11 years where he befriended fellow folk musicians Joey Only and David Roy Parsons.  David, who also joins us on the show today, has invited Andy down to play at the Oct 16 fundraiser for the Artscan organisation which supports Indigenous youth in northern Canada. Andy shares three powerful protest songs from his extensive catalog, starting off with the classic ‘Long Walk 49 Song’.
