Re-rockin’ the 902: Churchin’ it up, with the CapersPosted: October 24, 2013
As you recall, last year Wendy Bergfeldt from CBC Cape Breton was kind enough to clue me in about these recording sessions during Celtic Colours week. Performances and interviews are recorded at Knox Presbyterian Church in Baddeck for later broadcast. I attended Monday and Tuesday, went whale watching on Wednesday, and returned for more music on Thursday and Friday.
Thursday’s highlight was to listen to and meet a talented young man I’ve featured previously in Name-Brand Ketchup and on KBEK. Kyle Mischiek is a young Caper who infused the island’s most beloved song with hip hop beatz. Personable and funny, he charmed the crowd into singing along. This is the official video, not from Knox.
Any dude who can work Lick-A-Chick into a rap is good in my book.
An amazing week of music, all by churchin’ it up. Every bit as good as the shows I purchased tickets for.
