Saturday February 20th, 2016 with Chris White
Kongero, Jabbour, Jack Hui Litster

Brand-new music from three-time Juno winner David Francey's latest album, "Empty Train". We chat with Lotta Andersson who is on tour in the area as part of the Swedish a cappella group, Kongero (www.kongero.se). They perform at Dominion Chalmers Church this afternoon at 3:30 pm and at Les Brasseurs du Temps in Hull tomorrow at 7:30 pm. Montreal-based folk-roots band Jabbour drops by the studio to perform live and talk about their concert at Kaffe 1870 tonight at 9 pm. Their music blends influences from Louisiana, Americana, French "chanson" and Western Swing, with guitar, fiddle, double bass and great vocal harmonies (website www.jabbourband.com). Drummer/percussionist Jack Hui Litster talks about his musical projects, including the free family fun performance with Super-Pamplemousse taking place at the Wild Oat Bakery tomorrow afternoon at 3.

Awaiting the list of tunes played… Most interesting was the 'historial' ballad about Nepean lad on the streetcars to Britannia. Those were gone as of 1959…

Alex Sinclair moved to Toronto — now he's in a city that still has streetcars. Though no more Ottawa Electric Railway with the overhead wires… Are the new O-Trains in the tunnels all going to be electric?
