* Singer-songwriter Janaya Salmond LIVE in the CiTR studio *

This week’s extra special guest is a fresh face to Vancouver’s singer-songwriter scene – Janaya Salmond. Janaya comes from a musical family and has been surrounded by great songwriting all her life, as her father is a music producer. Janaya is a talented multi-instrumentalist and she chose to accompany herself on the show with an uncommon instrument known as a strum-stick. Tune in to hear Janaya soulfully execute two of her original compositions that will no doubt be on her forthcoming debut album!

* Featuring the music of The Seekers *

In keeping with the regular format of this show, we begin with featuring some older Australian music, this week in the form of three classics from easy-listening folk act The Seekers, who celebrated their 50 year anniversary in 2012.  It shouldn’t be forgotten that this five-piece, fronted by Judith Durham, have sold millions and albums and in the mid-60s were even competing with heavy-weights like The Rolling Stones on the UK albums charts. The band broke up only 6 years after the initial whirl-wind of international acclaim that began shortly after the band’s inception.
