* Featuring an interview with Juno Award winning First Nations blues musician Murray Porter *
First up on the show is an interview with First Nations blues musician Murray Porter who is performing Friday 7th December at the Music BC Charitable Foundation event ‘A Celebration of BC Music & Music Education’ at the Vogue Theatre. Murray Porter is Mohawk from Six Nations of the Grand River Territory in southern Ontario but he has lived in Vancouver for many years. Murray won a 2012 JUNO Award for `Aboriginal Album of the Year’, for his release `Songs Lived & Life Played’. “Murray Porter is a master bluesman”. Robbie Robertson (CBC Radio Interview, 2004).
The other day while browsing at a London Drugs I came across a CD re-issue of the original US release from AC/DC – the album ‘High Voltage‘ (1976). Perfect for ‘Stranded’ I concluded…! I feature 4 tracks from this Oz rock classic which is a treat for listeners who are partial to the working-man’s blues boogie/rock and lyrical double-entendres of Bon Scott era AC/DC.
The final part of the show features some impressive current Cancon including a couple of tracks from J.Riley Hill – an up and coming outlaw folk/country singer from Winnipeg – and a punchy number by two-piece Hole In My Head who are supporting The Jolts and Nu Sense at the Interurban Gallery in Vancouver on Sat 8 Dec.
