* Featuring an interview with singer-songwriter Lindsey White *

This week we are joined by singer-songwriter Lindsey White, who phones all the way from her home in Winnipeg, Manitoba!  Lindsey is touring western Canada in support of her latest release ‘Renegades’, an album long in the making and inspired by hugely transformative events in her life. Such was the emotional turbulence of that period that Lindsey decided to write a companion book for the album.  Today Lindsey speaks of the origins of the record and fills us in on the valuable and fascinating service she performs teaching inner city kids music in Winnipeg.

* Featuring tracks by Ben Lee and and a CiTR Arts Report special on the life and works of Canadian visual artist Eisert Hall *

Ben Lee‘s remarkable musical journey kicked off at a very young age when his high school band from Bondi in Sydney, Noise Addict, came to the attention of Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore.  His solo career began at the age of 16 and has continued to this day.  Ben’s latest release, which you can hear a sample of today, is a concept album that relates his experience exploring his inner world with the help of Ayahuasca: ceremonies.

The last half hour of the show is dedicated to a re-broadcast of a CiTR Radio Arts Report special on the life and works of award-winning Canadian visual artist Eisert Hall.  Eisert speaks at length about the philosophical underpinnings of her artistic output, and demonstrates a passion for social justice and freedom of thought that she has not deviated from throughout her decades-long career as a working artist and educator.
