|SCENE AND HEARD showcases the independent music scene here in Vancouver. With over 28,000+ artists, boasting more than 140,000+ tracks, the CBC Music/CBC Radio 3 web site is the absolute ultimate authority, and the home, of independent music in Canada. With that massive library along with tools for members (free to join!), we’re taking advantage of what they’ve set up by bringing you a fresh batch of music every week featuring local groups who have tracks (entire albums, even!) on the R3 site.|
This week’s playlist is a little bit country and a little bit rock’n'roll (actually!) courtesy of one of Canada’s greatest, Corb Lund! Corb is in town this week playing TWO shows at the Commodore Ballroom one on Wednesday and one on Thursday with guests Turnpike Troubadours! We asked the Alberta-born honky-tonker to put together a list of some of his favourite Vancouver musicians, which you can hear by clicking the images below! See you at the Commodore!
