This Sunday from 8-9am, it’s Arts Toronto with your host Mark Wigmore on JAZZ.FM91.

This episode:

Emilie Claire Barlow had a big year in 2016, winning multiple Juno Awards for her efforts on “Clear Day” which featured the Metropole Orkest. The talented singer, arranger and producer was born in Toronto to a family of artists and entertainers, and for the gifted vocalist, show business was a no-brainer. There was no ‘Plan B’.  Since her leap into the professional game, 2 of her 11 recordings have been Juno Award winners, she's guested on countless albums, toured extensively and has enjoyed a successful voice acting career. In recent times, a move to Montreal, and these days she’s spending an equal amount of time in Mexico. She also is working on a new record. Emilie Claire sat down in the Jazz FM91 studios with Mark Wigmore for a catch up.

And, Jazz Fm’s Garvia Bailey continues her incredible new series that is featured Fridays on ‘Good Morning Toronto’. The latest installment of “Giant Steps” tracks the history of one of New Orleans’ premiere venues, Preservation Hall.

And changing the game at the beloved Shaw Festival in Niagara on the Lake. This week we better get to know the former Stratford superstar who will usher the Shaw into a new era. New Artistic Director, Tim Carroll speaks to Mark Wigmore about the challenges he faces as a newcomer, the raised eyebrows over his UK roots, his hopes for the future of the company, and why three key Stratford actors have followed him to The Shaw.

All that and beautiful jazz for a Sunday morning. Catch the show from 8-9am on Sunday or online at
