Lively Concatenations And Conspiracies In The Orbit



One of Toronto`s most omni-functional musical sparkplugs, Emilyn Stam has a joyful new album, in collaboration with Filippo Gambetta an artistic expert in the workings of the diatonic accordion entitled Shorelines.

On it, the duo presents both original compositions and traditional dance tunes mostly from the Western European tradition. It will be presented in concert at a launch next Wednesday at Hugh`s Room Live. Filippo will be calling in at 5:30 today to talk about the currents that have carried him to this transatlantic concatenation.



And at 6:00, Jon Brooks with a new disk, 
No One Travels Alone
freshly arrived from some epically creative studio sessions in Key West and Hamilton, will drop up to speak, sing and conspire with us in the studio.



Emilyn Stam & Filippo Gambetta 
will also be available this weekend at:
