Filed Under (for the sake of the song, Ontario, podcast) by Sean on January-12-2011

Last summer, the third day of the Ottawa Folk Festival, was completely drenched in a 14 hour deluge.  Bob Ledrew put on his publicist hat and kept local media and the audience apprised of the many changes in the schedule throughout the day.  In between that, he took the time to introduce me to a number of musicians to interview for my show.  After the rain had mostly subsided, I sat down under a picnic shelter and had a great chat with Terry Gillespie and Lynne Hanson.

Terry Gillespie is a bluesman and reggae musician originally from Edmonton (like me) who has been a fixture of the Ottawa music scene for 40 years.   His most recent album, Big Money, was released last September.

Lynne Hanson is an Ottawa based songwriter with 3 CDs.   She is the recipient of the 2010 Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award.  Her new CD, Once the Sun Goes Down was also released last fall.
