The Halifax Mooseheads look to extend their undefeated playoff run tonight in Gatineau! Moose lead the series 2-0!
Today on AHR radio paul shaheen takes a look at Halifax's thrilling 6-4 Memorial Cup championship game victory over Portland on Sunday in Saskatoon.
Join us for this special Christmas episode of In The Country featuring Country artists Riki Knox, Mike Biggar & RyLee Madison. Each of them has a Christmas song to share.
A true performer, Riki has been described by her audiences as charismatic and highly entertaining. Whether she’s getting people up on their feet dancing, or engaging them with the strength of her original songs, Riki has a knack for drawing in the crowd and creating an unforgettable musical experience. She’s a girl who values and appreciates the ‘little things in life’. That grounded mindset has seen her go from playing church and charity events, to sharing the big stage with artists like Dallas Smith, Marc Jordan, Carole Pope, Jack DeKeyzer & Justin Hines to name a few.
Mike is an award-winning Country-Rock artist from Canada’s East Coast. His infectious melodies are well-spiced with lyrics of life, love, and loss. Powerful, punchy anthems with generous helpings of clever hooks and smart writing sit opposite intimate, tender ballads. Soaring vocals, honest lyrics and keenly focused performance energy concoct a compelling musical potion that makes instant fans of those who listen.
Born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, RyLee's music may have carried her to Nashville, but her hometown always plays an important role. RyLee says, "Nashville is my second home. I've created family here with my husband and friends but my first home will always be Nova Scotia." RyLee has traveled to Europe, performing at Festival Country Rendez-Vous in France, Whelan's Pub in Dublin, Ireland, Half Moon in Cork, Ireland, and Róisín Dubh Pub in Galway, Ireland and at the famed Bluebird Cafe in Nashville.
How we pray is as diverse as each being on our planet. What do we say? Do we even need to speak? What of our thoughts?
How do you express your prayer? Do you know when you pray?
Prayer is not necessarily done at a specific time or in a special place.
How you pray is unique to YOU. Are you even aware of when and how you pray? We pray more than we realize. How do YOU pray?
Healers, Activists & Other Lovers of
Humanity (Monkfish Book Publishing, July 2014) was born from a
vision in which Celeste Yacoboni was guided to ask the world, “How
do you pray?” She reached out to family and friends, then to leading
figures from all walks of life and schools of thought. Culled from
those responses is an original and deeply personal collection of
prayers, essays, and offerings that encourages readers to contemplate
the intention of prayer in their own life.
Composed essentially of prayers and short biographies of its 129
contributors (leaders of diverse spiritual and religious traditions
ranging from Buddhism to Islam to Christianity, as well as those who
do not claim any particular walk of faith), How Do You Pray? is an
interspiritual prayer book and resource guide to an emerging global
spirituality, which embraces our religious and spiritual diversity.
Contributors include Brother David Steindl-Rast, Matthew Fox,
Gregg Braden, Dan Millman, Huston Smith, Byron Katie, Marianne
Williamson, Margaret Starbird, Lama Surya Das, Andrew Harvey,
Terry Tempest Williams, Alex Grey, Masaru Emoto, Arvol Looking
Horse, Patch Adams, Roshi Joan Halifax, Rabbi Zalman Schacter-
Shalomi, Rabbi Rami Shapiro, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, James O’Dea,
Hank Wesselman, Fr. Bede Griffiths, and many other luminous
voices of spirit.
This week, we're bringing you a special roundtable interview with the artists on the upcoming Bands On The Run Tour - Doc Walker, The Road Hammers, and Blackjack Billy.
Doc Walker is dropping their eighth studio album - appropriately titled The 8th - on Oct. 21st, featuring the already-hit singles "That's How I Like It" and "Shake It Like It's Saturday Night." It's the band's first full-length without longtime member Murray Pulver, so we'll talk about readjusting to life on the road and how the new material will take shape on the stage.
As for the Road Hammers, their record Wheels has been doing well since dropping earlier this year. Frontman Jason McCoy talks about some of the differences between performing as a member of the trio vs. his solo tours and a lot more. Noll Billings, vocalist with Blackjack Billy, also weighs in on the band's experiences in Canada thus far and what they're anticipating for this upcoming run with their friends.
Finally, in CM Academy, we speak with James Boyle, the current executive director of the Halifax Pop Explosoin, who's getting ready for his first run at the helm. The lineup this year features acts like Against Me!, Danny Brown, and our Nov/Dec 2014 cover artists, Zeds Dead. We'll chat about what's going on leading up to this edition and what fans should be looking forward to.
Divide + Conquer. It's been around since...forever. From Julius Ceasar to Emperor Steven the First. With one common goal. To seize and maintain power. There is no denying the success of this tactic when one looks at history. But it always ultimately fails. Harper has used it as a weapon since Day One of the Corporate Pacification Committee (CPC). It is time for Canadians to see it for what it is and say enough.
Kevin Bourassa (@KevinBourassa) became an international advocate on behalf of equal marriage for same-sex couples when his January 14, 2001 marriage to Joe Varnell captured world headlines. After an initial career as a broadcaster and music journalist, Kevin's spent the bulk of his career working in information technology beginning in the 1980's and in banking during the 1990s. He was Director of Process Management for a bank when he was invited, with Mr. Varnell, to be a test case for a court challenge against the prohibition of marriage for same-sex couples. Things changed overnight.
Kevin travelled with Joe to speak to audiences in Canada, the US, and Europe, advocating marriage equality. He has delivered lectures at numerous universities and law schools. In addition to speaking, Kevin became an active author, publishing in an assortment of commercial and adjudicated academic publications. In 2002 he coauthored, with Joe Varnell, the critically-acclaimed book, Just Married: Gay Marriage and the Expansion of Human Rights, published in Canada and the United States in English and worldwide in French translation. He is under contract, along with Joe, for a second book.
Kevin has been recognized, with Joe Varnell, for working on behalf of human rights. The couple were honoured as grand marshals for Pride parades in London, Halifax + Saint John. Now in retirement, Kevin enjoys married life with Joe and three cats.
The View Up Here is honoured to welcome Kevin to the show for his insight.
