The Wavelength
Monday October 17th, 2016 with Joe Reilly
A tribute to Angus R Grant, fiddler for Shooglenifty who died Oct. 9th. And a feature of new music from Johann Johannsson who is performing in Montreal on Thursday night (Oct. 28th.)

Tonight we pay tribute to Angus R Grant of Shooglenifty who died on October 9th. Angus played in Ottawa several times with Shooglenifty and if you were fortunate enough to see those concerts you know what a force Angus was in the live setting playing with his Shoogle mates. He was a great fiddle player, an engaging and funny front man and he knew how to dance while playing his instrument. Fantastic tributes to the man are on the band's website and on the Herald Scotland's site. We also feature new music from Iceland's Johann Johannsson who will be performing in Montreal at Place des Arts on Thursday night, October 28th. Johannsson creates beautiful, haunting music that melds elements of classical music with electronics and in the live setting the music is hypnotic and lovely. If you have a chance to go to Montreal on Thursday night I highly recommend the road trip to see him perform with his ensemble.
