    The Minstral Show Episode 081 - Jan. 12, 2020

    Welcome to the Minstral Show, the podcast that spotlights the very best music from around the world, made exclusively in the 21st century.

    A new decade begins as Jan 2020 unfolds to reveal the next chapter of music…part of which, will be heard here today through new songs by Glass Eye, The Room in the Wood, Jonathan Hulten, In Continuum, and Agnes Obel. Also featured on today’s program are great tunes by Night Beds, Dino Belli, Tom Moriarty, David Ian Roberts, Big Big Train, Damn the Bard and a brilliant collab by sonic elements Dave Kerzner, John Wesley, Billy Sherwood and Rush drummer Neil Peart who pay tribute to “Rush” with a cover of their iconic tune “Tom Sawyer”.

    Incidentally, a charity edition of the Sonic Elements XYZ album is available on the Sonic Elements Bandcamp page. The album is dedicated to Rush drummer Neil Peart who passed away on January 7th, 2020. All profits from sales of this album will be donated to the Gord Downie Brain Cancer research foundation in honor of Neil Peart, so if you are a fan like me, here’s a great way to honor Neil. A big thank you to Dave Kerzner and all the artists who made this possible.

    And so, we start a new decade in the spirit of community, as we pay tribute to the artists who carry our thoughts forward through lyric, expression and the ambiance that their music leaves us with when looking back, and you heard it here first, on the Minstral show.

    Welcome to the Minstral Show, the podcast that spotlights the very best music from around the world, made exclusively in the 21st century.

    Another decade of Rock n Roll has come and gone as 2019 gives way to the evolving artistic freedoms of the 2020’s.

    Although, once thought dead, Rock has flourished in the shadows over the last decade as millions of artists who once had the doors of opportunity closed to them, suddenly found a spotlight via the internet…The result of which has breathed new life into artistic freedom, collaboration, independence and the re-emergence of the small record Label.

    Rock n Roll will never die…and what better way to prove it than to feature great new music by JD McPherson, Jeff Lynne, The Hanging Stars, The Who, ASA, and Alain Whyte…Also included are fantastic songs by United Ghosts, Peacefield, Alan Reed, Potter’s Daughter, Colin Devlin and Sonic Divide.

    The new age of Rock n Roll is in full swing and you get that here, on the Minstral Show.
