Fundamental Fund-Raising Shows Nov.19 & 26
Thanks, Roger Humbert for the photo
We'll be switching from fund-raising to hair-raising and back fairly abruptly, the way the Orbit do, when gravity just doesn't apply. Friday the 19th will feature phone linkage ship-to-surface, hot-to-ground connections with missing blues/bluegrass link Joel Fafard, at the Free Times Saturday, supporting his new disk, Cluck Old Hen. Then a communique from country dolls Ladies of the Canyon's singer Senja Sargeant, anticipating a Dakota gig next Thursday, that will take place noon-ish. Then, songster Joey Wright whose latest, Hatch, featuring such roots music stars as Sarah Harmer, Jenny Whiteley and Amy Millan, takes flight at The Great Hall next Thursday, will call up with a tour update. Ticket opportunities will abound for shows galore, and disk bribes, though for these two weeks, we will be demanding $$$$$s for the famished radio station which, for 50 weeks a year at least, only lives to give.
You want live nebular celebrities?
Well, Shakura Saidah, who takes only YES for an answer internationally, is appearing appealingly at Hugh's Room that very evening, and yet will manage a gracious flightpath into the Orbit for a chat and insight into the inspirations of her vast talent. Radio-telescopes should be trained on the 12:30-1:00 time slot for best clarity. Also, at 1, Funk Titan K.C. Roberts and his sax avatar Jared, riding a new cd and gigs resplendant, will arrive prepared to jam some telekinetic volitional omni-beats straight into your cortex. Put on some headphones and get loose, let's pledge some juice to keep CKLN.FM 88.1 in use, and formidable pour tous! QL?
