Broadcast Date: February 19, 2020
My guest today is a lady with whom I’ve had many a great conversation over the years – but truth be told most of them have been behind the scenes here at SEA AND BE SCENE – having been a huge supporter of my website since the very beginning – she’s written a ton of articles and photo essays and travel journals, she’s supplied us with yummy recipes from her East Coast Kitchen and created some special features too – heck back in the early days she’d even work the video camera during interviews and to this day she’s my go-to photographer for our big anniversary shoots. Indeed Cape Breton-born Kelley Edwards is one talented lady – whose resume includes a very long list of skills – from actor, writer and director to social media and pr specialist and on and on – and whether she’s working with CBC here in the Maritimes or in her latest role as artistic director at the Grafton Street Dinner Theatre – folks will be quick to tell ya – she’s as delightful and funny as she is talented – come to think of it her only real flaw is her reluctance to toot her own horn – as you’ll no doubt glean throughout the hour – she’s very fast to tell you about the amazing team behind her latest production “IT DON’T MEAN A THING” and the rich history behind Halifax’s oldest dinner theatre. Indeed we’ll get the scoop on Grafton Street and so much more – including another exciting new project Kelly’s working on – a documentary series called WHEN YOU DIE – you won’t want to miss – plus we’ll fit in 1st Things First and get in a long overdue round of INsights IN 10 – and even spin some of her favourite tunes along the way. With all that ahead I say let’s get to – Here’s my conversation with the one and only Kelley Edwards.
