Rick Keene Music Scene -April Wine’s Co-Founder Jim Henman Has Had Enough of School Shootings and Is Doing Something About It !

Children are the future …

Imagine how the world will appear in ten years? Imagine there is no safe zone at all? Homes and schools – the two places where kids should feel safe. A pair of sacred turfs now affected more and more by gun violence in the United States of America.

One of the co – founders of April Wine, Jim Henman , has been affected by the senseless shootings south of the border. He was so profoundly moved by the acts of violence – he wrote a song.

The song ‘Some of These Children’ is a poignant and stirring take on events that have affected everyone. Parents, teachers, relatives and the entire world.

Uncomfortable numb as they walk and continue their lives in shock and disbelief.

Jim Henman is donating fifty percent of all sales from the song to The Boys And Girls Club of Greater Halifax. This is a start to not only help the kids in Nova Scotia – to also send a message globally that us humans have had enough.

Please listen below to my chat with Jim and hear the song ‘Some of These Children’. Please share this as much as possible …

Rick Keene Music Scene – Paolo Stante ; The Next Generation of Montreal Guitarists

Practice makes perfect …

For guitarist Paolo Stante – the less he thinks – the more he feels the music.

Just prior to the release of his third disc; At It Again – that is the essence of Paolo’s music. Experience through gigging and writing has brought less panic to Stante’s craft and in turn, At It Again is his most complete album thus far.

Please have a listen below to my chat with Paolo and discover some very good tunes and masterful guitar work.

Rick Keene Music Scene – Mike Jones Talks Billy Joel, Elton John and Some Guy Named Penn Jillette?

Two guys walked into a bar and next thing you know – magic happened !

This is the tale of pianist Mike Jones. Magician Penn Jillette was one of the guys who walked into the bar and he loved Mike’s playing so much; Mike Jones became the opening act and musical director for Penn and Teller’s famous magical act in Las Vegas.

Fast forward sixteen years and the chemistry between Penn’s Bass playing and Jones’ keys was ripe for the picking. The pair play ‘The Show before the Show’ at each performance before the magic act commences. Magic before the magic !
