The Foundation of the Church from St. James Westminster and honouring The St. Regis Tavern!


It's the fifth week of Easter and the theme for this week's service from St. James is about the foundations of the Christian faith as the apostles try to make sense of the teaching of Jesus or 'the way', as it was called then.

Making sense of a new world order is something on all our minds these days. So, like the apostles, we should learn from adversity and work together to help create a better world on the other side.

I've heard that The St. Regis Tavern will be closing for good soon, collateral damage from the Covid 19 Pandemic. It was a great spot for local music of all genres. My only regret is that I didn't discover that sooner.

So, for the rest of the show, I'll feature some performers that I was lucky enough to have the chance to record there over the past few years.

Performances by:

⚡️ Lynn and Murray
⚡️ Allison Brown
⚡️ Willow Switch
⚡️ Black Savanna
⚡️ Jenny Rensby
⚡️ The Heartaches Stringband and The Blurry Pickers Jam

The world is changing right before our eyes... and ears as well! The musical landscape will be changed beyond recognition with great places like St. Regis gone.

If you can, find a way to support your local musicians right now by viewing them online and just sending some encouragement. Musicians live for their audience and they miss you as much as you miss them.
