The program concludes with a rebroadcast of the Saint Brigid's Session with Lucky Ron and Keith Snider recorded on March 14, 2016, and first broadcast on March 19, 2016.

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 and it was part of a series called the Saint Brigid's Sessions. The goals was 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.
