This episode was recorded live at The Marché des Possibles in Montreal. The guitarsmiths we tested are Chris McCarron, Jordey Tucker and Michael Felber. In addition to such bands as Stars, The Dears, Socalled and The Barr Brothers  they are members of the elite group of musicians that form Urockaoke a live karaoke band that is as good as it is fun. We have been to many of their parties and let me tell you you could not do something better for your staff party/fundraiser/corporate bonding weekend retreat/wedding/barmitzvah/whatever. They are for hire, so you should probably hire them. They are the best wedding band on the market. Just sayin’. Ok, enough of the gushing, let’s get to the trivia!

We’re gonna take a wee break for the rest of the summer and let Amy pop out a baby, so we will see you back here in September with some fresh episodes! Bon vacances! XX

Corinna Rose has been on tour for most of the summer (you can find all the dates here), but before she left back in mid-June (2015), we had a chance to catch up with Corey and Leah Dolgoy.

We talked about their new EP, The Wharf, life on the road, the many people who fall madly in love with Corey, and Leah taught Paul how to play the autoharp; you can hear him giddy and happy excitement as he plays a song with the two of them!
