The Saint Brigid’s Sessions on Saturday Morning with Stephen Neale

This series is recorded at the Saint Brigid's Centre for the Arts, a former church that was built in 1890 that is located in Ottawa's Lowertown. The goal of the Saint Brigid's Sessions is to capture live unplugged performances by artists in as technically minimal and unobtrusive manner as possible in order to capture a natural sound in what really is a magnificent sounding space.
