It’s with tremendous jubilation that I connected with today’s guest – joyful because it’s always a treat to chat with the multi-award winning and wonderful Cape Breton-born Bruce Guthro, and super celebratory because after more than 15 years of sold-out shows – he’s taking is much beloved SONGWRITERS CIRCLE SERIES OnLine – with 2 star-studded and stellar blocks of shows beginning July 3rd and running until December 18th. Intimate and interactive and all available to enjoy in your own home – with over 30 amazing artists including Alan Doyle, Natalie MacMaster and Donell Lahey, Matt Minglewood, J.P. Cormier, Dave Gunning, George Canyon, Johnny Reid, Ria Mae, Lennie Gallant, Myles Goodwin, David Myles, Reeny Smith, Joel Plaskett, Matt Andersen, Gordie Sampson and so many more. WOW RIGHT! So we’ll talk about how this virtual extravaganza came together, as well as how ticket sales help the artists and benefit the small theatres and playhouses here in the province of Nova Scotia. We’ll also talk about Bruce’s early days in music, his fun times fronting RUNRIG, and his two very talented kids – plus we’ll play 1st THINGS FIRST and squeeze as much of his marvellous music as we can within the hour. Please enjoy my telephone conversation with the one and only Bruce Guthro.
