The Saint Brigid’s Sessions on Saturday Morning

Tune in to Stephen Neale’s edition of the Saturday Morning program for the SAINT BRIGID'S SESSIONS. Recorded at the Saint Brigid’s Centre for the Arts, located in Ottawa’s Lowertown, this former church, which was built in 1890, plays the ideal host to the sessions. The goal of the Saint Brigid’s Sessions is to capture live unplugged performances by artists in as technically minimal and unobtrusive manner as possible in order to capture a natural sound in what really is a magnificent sounding space.

The Saint Brigid’s Sessions are sponsored by Brigid’s Well, a pub located in the basement of the Centre. Brigid’s Well is open Wednesday through Sunday beginning at 4PM. The address is 310 St. Patrick Street.

The latest session was with CHRIS PAGE aired on Saturday, May 14 at 9 AM. Follow the "read more" link to hear/see!

Nadine Gelineau's Celebration of Life "After Party"


Good times. Great memories. On May 7th, at Carleton University's Oliver's Bar (not far from where Nadine launched herself on an unsuspecting world), we will celebrate the legacy of Nadine Gelineau, an irreplacable, irrepressible superstar who was a beacon of wit, wisdom and generosity. Please join the Gelineau family in raising a glass. All welcome. Oliver's Pub & Patio, University Centre, 1125 Colonel By Dr. starts at 7PM.
https://www.facebook.com/events/1009658935786173/

To Bloc Party, The Dears, The Killers, Echo and the Bunnymen and dozens more, she was the savvy muse behind The Musebox, a marketing agency with offices in New York and Los Angeles. To CBC Radio listeners, she was a groundbreaking former voice of Brave New Waves. To those of us who volunteered at CKCU during her decade-plus reign as program director, she was the bubbly music guru who taught us all we know about great radio. And much of what we know about great music.

But to all who have known her, Nadine Gelineau was a bona fide legend – a standard to which we can aspire but which we can never meet. At CKCU, she was the all-knowing music lover at a station full of would-be musical know-it-alls. During her years working with and in the music industry in Canada and the United States, she was an all-knowing oasis in an otherwise know-nothing business.
