Gianna Lauren takes time out to talk with Peter about her music and life in Nova Scotia.
Its a while since we devoted the entire show to just one artist. It’s something that I really like us to do because it gives a chance to dig a bit deeper into the music and background of some hugely talented independent artists – the very people who have the depth to make such exploration so thoroughly worthwhile

Its a while since we devoted the entire show to just one artist. It’s something that I really like us to do because it gives a chance to dig a bit deeper into the music and background of some hugely talented independent artists – the very people who have the depth to make such exploration so thoroughly worthwhile.
This week we focus on Guianna Lauren whose almost wistful music was showcased at The Great Escape. It’s a while since we recorded our conversation, just before I went down with what I’m increasing convinced was Great Escape plague!
We found a corner of the green room at The Blind Tiger, one of my favourite Brighton venues and I started by asking Gianna how the practicalities of music works for independents in Canada.
Originally haling from Ontario in Canada, Gianna Lauren released her EP ‘On Personhood’ via Forward Music Group on 5th May 2014.
The single ‘Anchor Down’ is a beautifully crafted slice of lush indie atmospheric rock, overlaid with softly percussive drums and serene guitars. Stylishly quirky Lauren makes dreamy songs, with real depth.
In this set you'll have heard all six tracks from her excellent “On Personhood” album. If you’ve liked them even just a bit, please bear in mind that an mp3 podcast is fine to give you a flavour of the music but I’d seriously recommend shelling out the princely sum of just $5 to get the album in your choice of high quality format and listening to it full, glorious colour.
The very good news for UK listeners is that only four months after her first European tour, Gianna Lauren will be returning to England in September.
She’ll be playing four shows in England, including a performance at London’s Hoxton Square Bar opening for Sweden’s Jennie Abrahamson. Showcases at The Great Escape festival in Brighton back in May introduced Gianna’s music to English audiences through the UK release of her On Personhood EP. She is currently mixing a new full-length that will be available in 2015.
September 25 – Southampton, UK: The Art House
September 26 – London, UK: Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen // tickets
September 27 – Cardiff, UK: Four Bars
September 28 – Bristol, UK: The Canteen

That's right folks - it's another helping of the Casa Mirth podcast's "Little bits on the side". As surprising as this may be to some of you (ok maybe not), now and again there are mistakes in the recording of the show - and here's some for you to laugh at, along with some other bits that haven't made it into a full episode.
Introduced by the one and only Angel Barry White, this is a selection of laughs, errors and mild hysteria brought to you by Dr Norman Trousers and River Zambezi.
This should keep your humour hunger satisfied until the next episode of the Casa Mirth podcast - coming soon!
The CaminoWays.com team would like to thank all of you who came to the first CaminoWays.com Walking Festival on Sunday 27th July to celebrate St James Day. It was a truly fantastic day, helped by gorgeous weather, a great success by all accounts and it wouldn't have been possible without you: all the fantastic walkers of all ages, charity trekkers and all our partners and staff!
The day started with stretching exercises with Peter from D-Pete Health and Fitness, who got the walkers warming up and having a bit of a giggle together ahead of the trek.
The walking festival was divided in three trails, all with beautiful views of Lough Dan: a long walk up Kanturk and Scarr with mountain guides and CaminoWays.com staff, a short walk of 4km with CaminoWays.com staff and a family scavenger hunt with challenges and activities for families with younger kids. Among the walkers, there were many people walking for charities: Diabetes Ireland, Cry, Focus Ireland and Marie Keating Foundation. Many of them are going on their fundraising treks to the Camino de Santiago in the coming weeks so it was a good opportunity to prepare for the challenge, as well as raising awareness about their very worthy causes.
We also had an unexpected visit from the Vikings! as the popular TV show was being filmed in Lough Dan. Some walkers even got a glimpse of the Viking boats.
Back at basecamp in Lough Dan Scout Centre, walkers got to taste Jaime's famous paella. Jaime is the chef and owner of Dublin-based Spanish catering company FoodFiesta.ie. As the sun was shining, it was great to sit down and relax after the trek, enjoying a bit of music by Galician singer Susana Garrido, making the most of the wonderful weather.Walkers taking part in the long walk had a bit of climbing to do but were rewarded with amazing panoramic views of the Wicklow coastline, from the Sugarloaf to as far as Arklow, from the summit of Scarr.
Our partners outdoor clothes specialist 53 Degrees North had a stall with gear advice and a draw. Younger walkers were thrilled with bush craft demonstrations by Survivalist Ireland and people interested in the Camino de Santiago got to chat with CaminoWays.com staff and enter a draw to win two nights in Santiago de Compostela (the winners will be announced this week!).
Many of you were snapping away so we are looking forward to seeing all the pictures of the day. Remember, the #caminofestirl photo competition is still open until this Sunday to make sure you share your pictures! The best four shots will get fantastic prizes from CaminoWays.com, 53Degrees North, FoodFiesta.ie and Survivalist Ireland.
Thank you all for making it such a fun day and looking forward to St James CaminoWays.com Walking Festival 2015!
If you would like to share your feedback, please contact the CaminoWays.com team and we'll take your suggestions and ideas on board for next year's festival.
