Outstanding Canadian artist, Oh Susanna, hosted the songwriting workshop at this year’s Arts Wells Festival. I caught up with Oh Susanna after her performance with a crack band of her friends from Toronto. You can hear that two part interview on the show this week, as well as tracks spanning from Oh Susanna’s debut EP to her current record ‘A Girl In Teen City’, a concept album based on her remembrances of Vancouver in the 1980s.  We also introduce listeners to the masterful Canadian singer-songwriter Ron Sexsmith, who has been active as a solo artist since the mid-80s. You can hear ‘Worried Song’ from Ron Sexsmith’s latest record The Last Rider, as well as two early singles at the top of the show.
