Right Between Your Ears#12 May 8 2017
We start off with a gold-mining song with a flute and pedal steel guitar then jump over to Europe where Ian Anderson shows just what a man can do with a flute before floating on the Sea of Japan to soothing koto and shaku-hachi sounds. Freddie Aguilar tells us “There Is Time Yet” and some prairie boys tell us there is “No Time.” We pop up in St Petersburg, Russia and hear an indie band before the unmistakable accordion riffs of Louisiana carry us back to North America. We encounter a Big Boned Gal from southern Alberta and hear an Aboriginal man’s story before being soothed to the bone by Najma Akhtar. We get our souls wet in the South Canadian River of Texas and finish up in Surrey, B.C. listening to some delicious flamenco.
