This story is too random and too cool to fully explain.  Go ahead, try to explain the story in this podcast to your 1990 self.  I bet you can’t do it.  It began for me on November 24 when I received this tweet from Adam Gratrix @transpondency of the Transpondency Podcast.

I first saw Katherine Wheatley perform at the Eaglewood Folk Festival in about 1993.  She became an instant favorite of mine.  Over the years we have seen her in concert dozens of times, and several years ago I had the pleasure of opening for her and Wendell Ferguson at the Orillia Folk Society.  Katherine Wheatley is a veteran of the Canadian Folk and roots music scene.  She plays in a number of bands.  She is a solid guitar player. Her vocals and melodies are as expansive as the prairies.  In her songs, she weaves wonderful stories of ordinary people that are deeply rooted in Canadian soil.

She released two albums in the 90’s, ‘Straight Line’ and ‘Habits and Heroes’.  Her long awaited new album, Landed is now available on her website.  You can find her music at katherinewheatley.com.

I interviewed Katherine on the grounds of the Canterbury Folk Festival in Ingersoll in the midst of their 10th anniversary celebration.  You can hear some of the festivities going on around us.

I was blown away by the Great Wooden Trio at the Mariposa Folk Festival.  The Great Wooden Trio is actually has 4 members, an acoustic folk trio accompanied by a storyteller.  One of their two songwriters, Kevin Morse and I  talked about songwriting and passed around my  Ron Belanger crafted guitar in my favorite baseball dugout.
