Broadcast Date August 21, 2019

It’s always wonderful catching up with today’s guest.  Thanks to his prolific songwriting, his constant creativity, his steady stream of tour dates and his mega-award-winning albums – Cape Breton-born Jimmy Rankin has given us oodles and oodles of awesome news to feature on SEA AND BE SCENE over the years, and our on-camera interviews from on the red carpet at the CCMA’s to behind the scenes at ECMA’s to his very insightful INsights IN 10 we’ve covered it all – but we were definitely due for a catch up especially given his killer new project MOVING EAST his forthcoming fall tour and his sold out show at the legendary Shore Club September 6th. So we’ll talk about all of that and so much more including his love of live performance, the craft of songwriting, the worldwide status of “Fare The Well Love,” his take on destiny and his recent brush with the Stanley Cup, plus we’ll play a fun round of 1st Things First and squeeze in a little less is more and naturally play as much of his amazing music as we can over the course of the hour – so without further ado here’s my telephone conversation with the one and only Jimmy Rankin.
