Rogue Folk Club Artistic Director Steve Edge, in the studios of CiTR. Note the Manchester United cap!

Saturday January 19, 2008

This week I played some music by Andy Palacio, the pioneering Garifuna songwriter / musician from Belize. He suffered a massive heart attack yesterday, and the prognosis is not good. I saw him and his great band in Edmonton last Summer. The CD, "Watina", is exceptional. Anyone who likes African or Caribbean music will love it! It's on Cumbancha Records.
The rest of the show featured my customary amalgamation of new releases, upcoming concert performers, and a gradual migration from Africa to other world music, into blues, some nostalgia, plenty of Celtic this week, and some topical songwriters to finish.
