* 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.

* Sarah Wheeler LIVE in the CiTR studio *

Today is a milestone for ‘Stranded’ – podcast #200!  Much thanks to all of you loyal listeners and to the staff and programmers at CiTR radio for supporting the broadcasting of this show for the past few years.  Without your support it wouldn’t have been possible to host the amazing and inspiring in-studio guests we’ve had so far, including Sarah Wheeler, who joins us for the celebration this week.  Sarah is a well-established singer-songwriter and born-and-bred Vancouverite, with a powerful, resonant singing voice.  Sarah plays three tunes for us in the studio today, demonstrating her commitment to writing songs which come from the heart and which exhibit an unwavering social conscience.
