SaskScapes – Living Heritage

This episode is sponsored by HERITAGE SASKATCHEWAN

Heritage Saskatchewan is the collective voice of all those who value heritage in our province. As knowledge brokers and pathfinders, Heritage Saskatchewan raises awareness of Living Heritage.

===============================================

In this episode Kevin is joined by Dale Jarvis and Kristin Catherwood who have been on tour through Saskatchewan offering guest lectures and workshops on Intangible Cultural Heritage and keeping our traditions alive. There is also some very entertaining conversation about hauntings, fairy tales, tall tales, and the mummers! Whether some of these legends are true isn’t really the point. The interesting discussion is in how they have become interwoven into the fibre of our living Heritage.

SaskScapes – Intangible Cultural Heritage

We often think of our heritage as those things which are tangible. Buildings, artifacts, paintings: those items to be found in museums and galleries. But what about the intangible aspects of our heritage? Those things which help tell your story, the story of your community? What is the folklore you grew up hearing in the area in which you lived? What are the secret family recipes passed down from generation to generation?

Kevin Power is joined by Kristin Catherwood, the Intangible Cultural Heritage Development Officer with Heritage Saskatchewan. Together the more clearly define what Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) is all about, and how you can participate in your own communities.

SaskScapes – It’s all about family

It’s said that behind every great artist there stands a great team, and part of that team is the family. Kevin Power is joined by the parents of two performers (ALEXIS NORMAND & FARIDEH OLSEN) from ROSIE AND THE RIVETERS (www.rosieandtheriveters.com), and the parents of Canadian singer/songwriter JEFFERY STRAKER (www.jefferystraker.com).  The topic of conversation is the key role parents and families play in fostering music and creativity;  from their children’s early formative years, to their ongoing support – even now that they are successful artists.

SaskScapes – with guest Harold Hague

It’s the final episode of 2015! Happy holidays to you all.  Kevin Power is joined by WWII veteran Harold Hague, who, at the young age of 94 shows no sign of slowing down. Harold shares some heroic tales from his time serving overseas, reminding us, that in war, nobody wins.  Harold is joined by his wife Jan who is an artist in her own right and certainly has enough to keep herself busy during her own retirement. Regina residents will know Harold as the owner of Loggie’s Shoes, part of the downtown retail landscapes for years, and now home to Regina’s Creative City Centre and the Hague Gallery.
