* 2013 Red Jam Slam Radio Fest special *

This week I was deeply honoured to assist in hosting the  CiTR component of the Red Jam Slam Radio Fest,  alongside pioneering First Nations broadcaster Gunargie O’Sullivan.   This innaugral event highlighted the sad legacy of the Residential Schools through the airing of a radio documentary, while also celebrating the self-determination and creative spirit of  the First Nations of BC.  In this segment of the special you can hear musicians Trent Agecoutay and Sherry Stewart perform live in the CiTR studio and speak to their experiences as Aboriginal performers in Canada.

* Featuring live studio guest First Nations teacher and musician Larry Hanson, who is performing at the Red Jam Slam event at the Interurban Gallery in Vancouver on Feb 14 *

I had the fortune to travel to Seattle, WA this week to see the great Australian singer-songwrier Paul Kelly live in concert at the Triple Door, and interview him backstage at soundcheck!  You can look forward to hearing the interview at an upcoming show but for now you can enjoy two tracks from Paul’s beautiful 19th album Spring and Fall, which is a return to stripped-back solo acoustic music.

This year’s Red Jam Slam event, organized by Gunargie O’Sullivan of Co-op Radio is coming up at the Interurban Gallery in Vancouver on Feb 14.  The event features a host of First Nations musical and spoken word talent, including today’s studio guest, Larry Hanson.  Larry, who has a degree in history from UBC, is an adult education teacher and musician who recorded his debut full-length album in 2010.  Today Larry speaks about his work as a teacher and the Idle No More movement and plays tracks from his record ‘Rez Warriors’. Larry’s wife Helen also joins us and speaks about her valuable work helping to preserve the language of her people through First Voices.
