: The Tom Fun Orchestra, Karkwa
native West Coaster, I have always been fascinated by the goings on back East,
and I mean way east, as in Maritimes
been to Halifax
a couple of times but that's as far as I've gone and truthfully I seemed to
find more in common than not. I like staying up late and drinking beers and
then having a donair. And you'll always find me in the kitchen at parties
with instruments and other music makers.
today's show, Ian MacDougall
of the Tom Fun Orchestra
joins me for Tour Diary. The
band is on their CBC Radio 3 sponsored Pan(Handling) Canadian Boxcar Crusade
that takes them East to West in pretty short order. They have to be in Newfoundland
by March 1 for
the East Coast Music Awards
; they have three nominations.
his other seven band members have a new van and have already done a fair bit of
driving. I'll be reaching him in Thunder
Bay for a chat about kitchen parties and busking when
today's show, Juno nominees Karkwa
. I'll speak with Louis-Jean
of Karkwa, and also Betty Bonifassi
It's all coming up on Appetite for Distraction
from 6-9 p.m.
PST, 9-12 p.m. EST...music and meanderings.
