Kathleen Edwards @ CBC Studios

. : : January 27th, 2012 : : . I wasn’t exactly lying when I said last week’s CBC radio broadcast recording of Kathleen Edwards would be the last for a while. Not exactly. You see, this CBC Kathleen Edwards recording is actually sourced from a TELEVISION show, George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight. And that’s a big difference, right? Kathleen was just the musical performance, tacked on at the very end with a short segment of interview snippets before it. Too bad, because George is known for giving great interviews and frequently coaxing answers to the tough questions. Alas! As such, we’re going to have to live with…

Kathleen Edwards @ CBC Radio 1

. : : January 23rd, 2012 : : . In what will likely the be the last FM-sourced Kathleen Edwards concert for the foreseeable future, I am completing the trilogy with Kathleen and band’s third trip to CBC Studios in Toronto in some 10-days, where they taped a short set and interview on Q with Jian Ghomeshi. As the band’s setting to embark on an intercontinental tour, it’s exciting to get a sneak peek at how the songs are evolving from album to stage, and hear how the new band (sans Jim Bryson) is coming together. The interview itself in an interesting listen as well; although…

Kathleen Edwards @ CBC Radio 2

. : : January 20th, 2012 : : . Are you sick of Kathleen Edwards yet? No? Nor am I, or the CBC it seems. Less than a week after coming by with the full band to perform a special invite-only concert for CBC’s Canada Live program, Kathleen and lead guitarist Gord Tough stopped by the studios again to chat with Radio 2 DRIVE host Rich Terfry and perform three stripped down versions of songs from her freshly pressed, long-awaited album, Voyageur. Luckily, I was able to capture the recording and share with you, dear listeners. A bit of chatter in the middle (with Kathleen playing DJ and introducing…

Colleen Brown @ Dakota Tavern

. : : January 20th, 2012 : : . As I mentioned in yesterday’s Kathleen Edwards blog post, with a unheard of two week vacation that would take me out of the country, I fully expected a flood of bands I love to perform shows in my favourite Toronto venues while I was away. So, yeah, I breathed a large sigh of relief when I saw that Colleen Brown HAD booked a headlining show in Toronto, finally, and it would be some three days after I got BACK in town. The evening sun set early, and as it disappeared behind the horizon, it brought a sheet…

Kathleen Edwards @ CBC Studio 11

. : : January 14th, 2012 : : . It isn’t frequent that Kathleen Edwards plays a show in Toronto that I don’t somehow find a way to get to. In fact, since the release of Asking For Flowers (and perhaps a bit before it), I managed to see all but one Kathleen Edwards show in Toronto — a show at the Trinity Church surprised me by selling out before I could snag a ticket. When I booked two weeks off of work to travel for a destination wedding that would take me to the southern US and Bahamas, I just KNEW that I was going to miss…
