On the CBC concerts on demand page currently a concert with Canadian singer/songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk was featured. I was immediatly fascinated by the performance of Chantal Kreviazuk. She has a great voice and sings the songs with a lot of power and feeling.
The concert was recorded on Jun. 27, 2009 at the Jackson-Triggs Amphitheatre, Niagara-On-The-Lake, ON
Chantal played the piano to accompany herself, and was supported by Kevin Fox on the cello and Karen Graves on the violin. I have the impression, that this concert was really a great event
Chantal Kreviazuk has now become one of Canada’s top music artists. Her performance at the Jackson-Triggs Estate Amphitheatre was sold out but Canada Live was there to record the magic as Chantal presented songs from her latest release called “Plain Jane”, along with some past favourites. Joining Chantal that night was Kevin Fox on cello and Karen Graves on violin.

Some days ago I have heard a song in the Canada Live Podcast that sticked to my mind. The singer is named Dan Mangan and was just elected as Artist of the Year of the XM Satellite’s Verge Music. I do especially like the end of the song, where the audience is asked to sing the chorus with the singer:
Robots need love too, they want to be loved by you.
Another interesting thing is, that a Weissenborn guitar is used in the arrangement of the song, a special kind of Hawaiian slide guitar.
On Dan Mangans website danmanganmusic.com you can find this:
After two sold out CD Release shows at the Vancouver East Cultural Centre, Mangan looks forward to bringing his four-piece and new material across Canada in October and throughout Europe in November / December ‘09. To boot, Mangan recently took home “Artist Of The Year” from XM Satellite’s Verge Music Awards, beating out acts like Joel Plaskett and Alexisonfire for the top spot – a high profile award with a $25,000 cash-prize.
Dan Mangan will go on tour in Germany in late 2009, and I think the Germans will like his songs too.
