The Saint Brigid’s Sessions aired in 2016 on the Saturday Morning show with Stephen Neale. There are plans to record new sessions in 2018.

The sessions are recorded at the Saint Brigid's Centre for the Arts, a former church that was built in 1890 and 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.
