What’s Coming Up on MUSIC OF THE ISLES?
CALENDAR — Upcoming on Music of the Isles — Spotlighting:
6/3. This month’s show is a tribute to the late Stan Rogers. This week marks the 40th year of the passing of the much-missed Canadian singer-songwriter, who passed all-too-young, tragically in an aviation fire. We commemorate Stan with a program of mostly live recordings of his works. It’s a full show of Stan’s rich, baritone voice singing his stellar compositions.
6/10. In this Week’s Show, we’re revisiting 2022 releases that escaped our notice. We’re just catching up. Forgive our tardiness.
6/17. This week we’re playing the Name Game again. Listen for yours in song.
6/24. The French Connection is what we’re calling this Week’s Show. Much of the program’s music is from Brittany and French Canada. Many of the songs are sung in French. Vive les Francais!
