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 Jeffery Straker

SaskScapes turns 70 and what better way to celebrate than with the man who has provided the theme music for the podcast since episode one. Saskatchewan born singer/songwriter Jeffery Straker has established himself as one of the most successful (and busiest) artists this province has produced, and has gone on to international acclaim.  Kevin Power joins Jeffery in a conversation that is more fun than two people ought to have in a podcast!  And, it’s another “6 degrees” moment as Jeffery reveals his musical lineage which connects him to Beethoven and Chopin. Even Jeffery is part of Taron Cochran’s 6-degrees world.
