* Alea Rae LIVE in the CiTR studio *
We begin today’s show by revisiting the edgy, swampy, alternative blues of Beasts of Bourbon. It’s just a been announced that a much-warranted documentary on the legendary band is in the works. You can see a brief trailer here.
And after two weeks off we’re back with a live studio guest! New Westminster-based folk artist Alea Rae has made the #99 bus trip down to CiTR studio, along with Patrick, another 1/3 of her band, who joins in with expert acoustic accompaniment. Alea and Patrick perform three intricate folk songs today, including both sides of the ‘Flies/Lancaster’ single which is being released at the Media Club on 14 August.
