Nov 19: Jim Byrnes & The Sojourners on CBC

Sunday Nov 19, noon
"Westcoast Performance," CBC Radio 2

My favourite new record this year is "House Of Refuge" by Jim Byrnes. Produced by Steve Dawson (who several times has played his many stringed instruments at Pacific Theatre gigs), the gospel-soaked disk features The Sojourners, a very fine trio of singers from the Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir. You'd swear you stepped into a storefront church someplace in New Orleans.

Early this fall, the Rogue Folk Club hosted a CD release concert ("I was there. It was fabulous." reports Soul Foodie Rudi). CBC recorded it, and is broadcasting it tomorrow at noon on Radio 2.


Advance word about related matters. Good Noise will be performing a series of three Christmas concerts, the first at my home church, Fraserview MB in Richmond. When time gets closer I'll post more details, but here's the heads up for now (and just in case...)
