Dan St.Yves’ Roots Resonator

 

I’ve been grappling with trying to get all of my social media/websites links under one umbrella, and I’m still working on that 🙂

However, I’m happier with THIS site than I have been, and my scattergun approach with interviews finally has a new name – Roots Resonator. I launched that the other week with an interview ahead of Ellen Doty‘s appearance at Bragg Creek Performing Arts.

Still have work to do, but I am determined to get this stuff together, so that people don’t have to stumble upon it simply by luck and pluck…

Check out the feature I did on Ellen for my online Calgary Herald space!

Steven Truscott Story @ Workshop Theatre

The Steven Truscott story is familiar to many Canadians, going back over 40+ years when a young teenager (Truscott) was wrongfully accused of killing his female classmate, and sentenced to hang – this goes back to 1959.

Over the ensuing years, well…if I tell you everything here, that may discourage you from going to see the show – so I won’t 🙂

However, I did sit down and chat with Louis B. Hobson, a noted reviewer, playwright and in this case – co-director for Steven: The Steven Truscott Story, a play that makes a return to Calgary at Workshop Theatre over the next few days.

Listen to my podcast interview, and read the feature that appeared in my Calgary Herald blog. He also sheds considerable light in his own column.

In addition, I recently sat down with two actors that portray Mr. Truscott over the length of those 40+ years, Ciaran Volke and Fred Krysko.

Watch that video interview on my YouTube channel. Apologies, I was using new gear and the low light conditions made the resulting video grainy, even having been shot in HD…

I’ll have a review once I’ve been to see the show!!

Stage West Brings Back The ’80’s

If you enjoyed the great musical acts of the ’80’s, you’re probably going to walk away a fan of Stage West’s latest production, 80’s Solid Gold. Featuring a talented cast of actors and singers, backed by the top-notch band led my Musical Director Konrad Pluta, this 2-hour show relives the best of that era.

Check out my Calgary Herald review for more info!
