"Caution: Men at Work" Sunday March 2, Rasputin's

On Sunday March 2nd I will be joining well-known Ottawa Storyteller Gail Anglin, using traditional and original tunes and tales to explore explore the challenges of working men - building railroads in the American South with the legendary John Henry; seeking work as a farmer’s boy in pre-industrial England; struggling through a bitter strike at MacLaren's sawmill in Buckingham, Quebec; adjusting to the duties of kingship; and experiencing the angst of the modern commuter, daily torn from his love by OC Transpo.

The emotions in this hour-long show run from light to bittersweet, and (as the publicity blurb modestly asserts) "the harmonies of these two talented performers delight the ear and the spirit."
