LOSER! That’s what they told me.

As heartbroken as I am that my giant “skitter” didn’t win a prize … I will, with great delight, announce the winners of the Dysart et al Repurposing Contest. The winning entries will be on display at the Haliburton Home and Cottage Show this weekend at the Environment and Green Energy booth. In truth, as the organizers point out, no one is a loser in this contest, it’s just that some people got money and the rest of us didn’t (chuckle goes here.) Listen this morning and then go to http://www.pinterest.com/dysartetal to check out all the clever submissions.

Here’s my loser submission

Harrison Kennedy copy
Harrison is on a straight-arrow flight path toward being internationally recognized as a true blues artist and composer of his own music, one foot solidly in rural acoustic practice, and the other planted in urban modern contemporary sounds and themes. He’s got one of the more distinctive and soulful voices in the business.
Grab a coffee and join us … we’re live from 7 am.
