After Yukon musician Kim Barlow honed her banjo chops beside a campfire in the Yukon and explored a career in horse-logging, Kim Barlow embarked on an eccentric musical career that has taken her from Inuvik to the UK; and from Yackandandah, Australia, to Cape Spear, Newfoundland. She has recorded four CDs of her own, and also performs with Annie Lou, an all-girl hillbilly band, and Spring Breakup, a duo she started with Mathias Kom of The Burning Hell. She’s a two-time Juno nominee; with her second CD, Gingerbread, and most recently with Annie Lou, for their 2010 self-titled release. Kim Barlow’s songs are wry and impassioned, deft distillations of the beautiful and absurd world she inhabits. Playing guitar and frailing banjo, Barlow creates rich and unexpected settings for her fables of lost children, allegories for love and loss, and examinations of the natural world and the other-worldly. Tonight’s your chance to talk with Kim. Phone the hotline at 323-843-6093.
