And on the subject of people making music in different ways, there are those who can imitate the sounds of musical instruments, (vocal play) such as Naturally 7.

Chris Lyne (host)
Let's give them a listen Shelley, in an upcoming show :-) Hopefully no blowing through a comb and tissue paper!

Shelley Ann Morris
No, far from it. They make the sounds all with their voices—seen them twice here in Ottawa. Was positively blown away!

They sound great Shelley, certainly lots of admirers

Here is a suggestion “Kiri’s Piano” by James Keelaghan. Regular listeners to Canadian Spaces will be familiar with that song—it tells a very powerful story.

Shelley Ann Morris
Another excellent show. Thanks Chris.
