Join us for this short 20 minute spotlight on the mental health challenges we all share and a coming together in solidarity to face them.
Award winning songwriter Amelia Curran has become one of the provinces most visible advocates in raising mental health issues and awareness and she will perform a couple selections from her brand new album "Watershed" which is very much inspired by, and born out of, these challenges.
Scott Casey is the president of Military Minds Inc. and will take a moment to tell us all about a cross Canada bike ride that will be departing St. John's on Saturday, August 5th to raise awareness and support for veterans and their families in coping with PTSD.
In addition to the tremendous community work that Stella's Circle does in terms of advocacy for social equality and providing supports to those that face challenges in employment, they also maintain the Stella's Circle Inclusion Choir who will join Amelia onstage to conclude this short set!

Chicken-Like Birds are the combination of Ari Lantela who is known for his refined sloppy blues guitar picking and Jasmin Frederickson on double bass. Together they sing their original songs about adventure, independent women, cooking and the pair's strange relationship. With some on-stage antics, a few funny stories, some strangely endearing awkwardness along with suitcase percussion and interesting harmonies, listeners will be treated to a tasty marriage of roots, blues, swing and ragtime that the Canadian Pacific Blues Society has called a “fantastic old-school acoustic experience.”
