We spend the hour with Montreal-based playwright, author, musician and cabaret artist, Norman Nawrocki. We talked about his recent writings on the internment of eastern Europeans in Canada a century ago, about being a touring performer around the world on either side of the fall of the Berlin Wall, life during the pandemic, and many other things.
David Rovics has been called the musical voice of the progressive movement in the US. Since the mid-90’s, Rovics has spent most of his time on the road, playing hundreds of shows every year throughout North America, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Japan. He has shared the stage regularly with leading intellectuals, activists, politicians, musicians and celebrities. In recent years he’s added children’s music and essay-writing to his repertoire. More importantly, he’s really good. He will make you laugh, he will make you cry, and he will make the revolution irresistible.
