2016 kicks off with Shawna Caspi January 23

We begin 2016 with an Ottawa girl who's making it work in the big city of Toronto.

Shawna Caspi's love of music goes deep, and was nurtured at the Ottawa Folklore Centre and Rasputin's. Since those beginnings, she's become a veteran performer, a tireless tourer, a constant contributor to the folk and roots music community, and much respected for her fingerstyle playing and her fine songwriting.

If you don't believe us, believe the folks who judged the 2015 "Songs From the Heart" competition, in which songs by Shawna were chosen in both the humorous and political categories. Here's her song Devil's Rolling Pin:

Shawna Caspi is our first guest of 2016, and we're dead chuffed she'll be performing for us and for you. AND she'll be bringing CDs and her own paintings for your purchasing pleasure!
