Dave on Dave on Chris
Thanks to Ottawa-based folk maven Chris White, who spent 40 minutes of his January 8 Canadian Spaces show talking with Dave about his latest album. The conversation touches on the Beatles, legendary Montreal folk venues of the 1970s, Dave's 1938 Martin D-18 guitar -- and, of course, the music on CFMA-nominated The Healing Garden.
If you have not been fortunate enough to encounter it, Canadian Spaces on CKCU in Ottawa is Canada's longest running folk music radio program and routinely features some of the best music in the country. His Jan. 8 show also features Christine Graves and Terra Spencer, both worth getting to know.
The discussion about how the Lennon-McCartney (but really Lennon) song Across the Universe ended up on an album of guitar instrumentals is particularly interesting.
Thanks again, Chris.
