Started with my usual peripatetic sojourn around Africa and then uncorked the seasonal spirits with new singles from Locarno, Nicki Bluhm, and Abigail & Bela. A few jaunty Xmas ditties, some wassails and solstice songs, and a feature on Cape Breton's wonderful Celtic quartet Coig, who play a Christmas show tonight on the Rogue website. Ended with m…

Started with some Indian music for Dilwali - the Hindu festival of light. Moved to Africa, sweeping through from north to south before zooming up to Sweden. A bit of soulful music from both sides of our border before a big Celtic flourish with a healthy Canadian accent. Recorded the show from a waterfront hideaway near Ladysmith B.C. Nice to be out…
