CBC Song Quest

Song Quest

I’m thrilled to have some really lovely songs from the CBC Song Quest project. Manitoba’s Kerri Latimer is featured with a song I’m an instant fan of called ‘Mountain Road’.

What is Song Quest? Well, I’d describe it the simple notion that there are uniquely Canadian stories to tell, and will to help artists tell them. From their website: “13 musicians – one from each province and territory – have been selected to add a new chapter to the Canadian songbook through the creation of 13 new original road songs.”

Dreamcatchers

The DreamcatchersLocal business owners of Beausejour Music John and Gail are also familiar to many as The Dreamcatchers Band. We have a couple of their CDs, with one pictured here. They are mainly Country and Country Gospel, and I think John writes most of these songs They’re also good friends of Town Radio, and are happy to receive CDs on our behalf at their store on Third Street South. They’re typically open afternoons if you need some guitar strings, or are interested in music lessons.

Tracy K

Tracy KBeausejour’s own Tracy K delves into more that one musical genre. Blues, Jazz, and really, she’s strikes me as as someone just plain loves any music. We’re lucky enough to have some songs from an upcoming CD that will be called ‘Canned Heat’, so tune in to hear those.  For more info about Tracy K, visit her website at tracyk.ca.

Jennifer Hanson

You probably remember her. A staple around Winnipeg for so many years, originally from Flin Flon, many around these parts have enjoyed listening to her wonderful voice. If you’ve ever gone to a Jets game at the Winnipeg arena, you probably heard her singing the national anthem.

Terry Kelly’s enthusiasm for life and sheer determination have gained him recognition as an accomplished athlete; an award-winning singer, songwriter, and entertainer; a professional speaker; and a lover of life.

A Pittance of Time

A Pittance of Time

On November 11, 1999 Terry Kelly was in a drug store in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. At 10:55 AM an announcement came over the store’s PA asking customers who would still be on the premises at 11:00 AM to give two minutes of silence in respect to the veterans who have sacrificed so much for us.

When eleven o’clock arrived on that day, an announcement was again made asking for the “two minutes of silence” to commence. All customers, with the exception of a man who was accompanied by his young child, showed their respect.

Terry’s anger towards the father for trying to engage the store’s clerk in conversation and for setting a bad example for his child was channeled into a beautiful piece of work called, “A Pittance of Time”. Terry later recorded “A Pittance of Time” and included it on his full-length music CD, “The Power of the Dream”.

Cady McClain

You might know Cady from some non-musical sources.  If you’re a fan of daytime drama, you’ll recognize her from her role as Dixie from All My Children and Rosanna Cabot from Days of Our Lives.  She also played Peter O’Toole’s daughter in My Favorite Year, coaches niece from Cheers, and an anthropomorphic toad with a gambling addiction in, er, nevermind, I’m making that last one up. :)  A couple of recent movies include Soldier’s Heart and Home Movie.  Did I mention she’s an accomplished singer too? There’s more, and you can read it at her website cadymcclain.com.

Cady McClain: blue glitter fish

blue glitter fish

I’m thrilled to have her CD, blue glitter fish in rotation at Town Radio Beausejour. I think I’ll describe it as beautiful and thoughtful, and often fun. CDbaby describes it as “Expressive, vivid and at times heart wrenchingly beautiful” lyrics and powerful melodies with musical influences ranging from jazz and American roots, to latin and Lou Reed.
