* Lindy Gray LIVE in the CiTR studio *

We’ve invited yet another quality local songwriter into the studio today – Lindy Gray.  Lindy, who has trained in jazz and Indian classical music, is skilled at crafting detailed narratives into song form.  She is also experienced at collaborating with other local musicians and artists as part of the Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret. You can hear three examples of Lindy’s favourite song form, the murder ballad, as she plays acoustically live in the studio.  Lindy’s debut EP ‘Ripe for Revival‘, is available online, and listeners can expect a vinyl LP is follow in the near future.

* Featuring live in-studio performances by special guests Phil Kikuchi and David Roy Parsons *

Today’s show features the first in-studio live performances on ‘Stranded’ for 2013!  This evening, Cafe Deux Soleils in Vancouver hosts three outstanding local acts – singer songwriters Jess Hill and David Roy Parsons, and instrumentalist Phil Kikuchi.  David and Phil have made the trip down to CiTR today to chat and play some acoustic numbers.  You will hear Phil demonstrate his fingerpicking finesse and David speaks of his fascinating life-story and treats us to his thoughtfully written tunes.

The second half of the show begins with a tune from Flying Fox and the Hunter Gatherers who are gaining considerable popularity in their hometown Winnipeg and who are debuting their live show in Vancouver at the Railway Club this eve. Then strap yourself in for some high-octane tracks from the legendary Detroit rock inspired Asteroid B-612. These words from an old gig poster sum up their sound perfectly: heart, soul, Chuck Berry, passion, sweat, blood, 64′ Falcons, volume, jealous girlfriends, ego, the element of danger! MG
