Suzie LeBlanc on Bluenose Opera House

On 24 June 2012, Suzie was a guest on Paul Kellogg’s radio show the Bluenose Opera House (http://www.bluenoseoperahouse.ca/),inspired by the “Grand Ole Opry” but with the colourfully salty heritage of Atlantic Canada. It is a radio program promoting Maritime culture, heritage and great artistic talent.  Featured are the most gifted musicians, artists, storytellers, civic leaders, inspiring volunteers; people of all ages with new ideas or who’ve reinvented their lives to survive and move on. The show is filled with music of every genre produced not only locally, but with familiar present and past classics that are done by artists from around the globe who tour the Maritimes or are simply beloved by Atlantic Canadians.

You can listen to this show as a podcast on the Bluenose Opera House website http://www.bluenoseoperahouse.ca/index.php/podcasts— click on the podcast for 2012-06-24.

You can download the podcast, too. There is a separate page for downloads.

The Bluenose Opera House show is a two-hour programme with a guest artist in each hour. Suzie is featured in the second hour of the show, after Liverpool, N.S., writer and newspaper editor Vernon Oikle. So, keep listening and you will hear the chat with Suzie. During the interview, Suzie mentions that the Indiegogo campaign for the Elizabeth Bishop Legacy recording would start “tomorrow.” The launch of this campaign was delayed, BUT it will soon go live and we will be in touch with the link as soon as that happens, hopefully, Wednesday, 25 July 2012. Stay tuned!
