Ode to Ani

Hosted by:


  • Folk

Host: Jo Vipond

Description: The Ode to Ani folk show is an eclectic mix of music that encompasses what Louis Armstrong said: ” All music is folk music.” I play three songs from every genre and try to make the transition a smooth one. From celtic to country to blues and with an emphasis on emerging and local performers.

      Hi Jo, Just enjoying your show on CFUV! I’m an old folkie who will touring on “The Island” in a few weeks. I’ll be in Victoria at the Spiral Cafe on April 27 and wondered if you might mention it on your show and perhaps spin a tune. I can send you some music files if you like. Peace and best wishes, Ken

      Love your show so much. Who sang the guitar gorgeousness “fair thee well” at 8:12 today? Ecclestons? Thank you.

      Hi Jo
      I loved the country version of Here We Go Again yesterday. Could you tell me who did it?
      Thank you.

      Loved the folksy music with bagipes, just before 9:30. Would love to know who the group/performer is.

      Missed who was singing the beautiful version of ‘Hard times come again no more’.

      Please let me know.

      Always love your selections.

        Glad you like the show. The selection was from Songs from the Mountain. It is an excellent album with singing by Dirk Powell, Tim O’Brien and John Herrmann. Jo

          Hi Jo, I am lad to discover your show. I heard you say you’re looking for folk dj’s! I’m moving to Victoria tomorrow to go to UVIC for a year. Could you e-mail me your perspective on dh’ing there? I’ve been dh’ing and concert producing folk and Americana music for over 35 years and want to keep going! I think I have the best acoustic music collection anywhere and am up on all the acoustic music trends. Thanks and thank you for a great show! It was fun to hear some friends including Mary McCaslin..
