In this week’s episode, we’re throwing it back to the classics! Host Chris Batstone sits down to chat with two recent ECMA Award nominees, singer/songwriter Moira Bren (NS) and classical pianist Sarah Hagen (PEI). We explore Bren’s rise as a musician, which began with covering songs on Instagram using simply her voice and ukulele, to recording her debut EP in her parent’s bedroom, all the way to Hagen’s well-established career, accrediting the piano as its own force, and what was most memorable while playing at Carnegie Hall (twice). Chris takes a deeper look into a “no frills”, uncomplicated classic music style.
