So the road coming in was not to bad, but we did call Mark and asked him to open the store for us just in case we didn't make it in.(Just a little freezing rain)
It has been a pretty quite morning, so here is a list of music that Jenn and I have been listening to lately. Just because Music, Coffee & books go so well together!
Fist up is Joel Plaskett album La De Da. Thank you Heather and Mark for tuning us on to Joel's music.
Michael Franti & Spearhead - all Rebel Rockers. This is a great CD! It is full of songs that are very upbeat and with some great lyrics. Radio Paradise has beening playing their stuff a lot lately. Luckily our friends Leigh and Temma gave us a copy for Christmas. Thanks guys!
Far End of Summer by David Francey. Ok so CBC radio was playing one of David's songs last week on the morning show. I missed who the name of the artist and album but loved the song and I remembered that it had February & Drive in the title. Jenn thought it might be February & morning. Well we were both wrong...kinda...the song title was actually "February Morning Drive". I love the fact that CBC plays music you wouldn't normally hear on other radio stations! Great Folk album by the way.
Soul Jazz Orchestra - Freedom No Go Die has been in my CD player a lot lately as well. Phil and Steven two locals are both members in the band. Souljazz also has a new CD out! Freedom No Go Die is available at Chat Noir Books. I am waiting to her from Phil to see if we can get some of the new CDs.
I finally also got a copy of Kim Barlow's Cd Luckyburden. Thank you Garnet and Brian for the "Yukon Tunes" Cd. Kim is another musician I would love to see at the Classic...actually I would to see all these guys at the Classic!
