Season two has launched and it's great to be back! It promises to be another great season traveling Saskatchewan and sharing your stories.  I can't think of a better way to start this season than with my guest Lynda Haverstock.  Lynda shares stories from her younger life, musical life, public life, and yes, personal life. Named in 2000 as Saskatchewan's 19th Lieutenant Governor, Lynda is arguably one of the most influential people in this province. This episode has all of the humor, humilty, passion, integrity and honesty that I've come to expect from Lynda. And we wouldn't want her any other way!

This is a special bonus edition of SaskScapes being posted during a time when the northern communities of Saskatchewan are facing a very difficult situation. Over 100 forest fires continue to burn and have forced thousands of residents out of their homes. The evacuees have moved swiftly to various locations across the province without a great deal of time to take all of their belongings.  Sheryl Kimbley has put a call out to local musicians in the Saskatoon, Regina, and Prince Albert areas to come together in a show of support and hold benefit concerts to raise funds. The support so far has been overwhelming. This podcast was recorded in Saskatoon on June 30, 2015. If you are in the Regina area on July 4, 2015 or Prince Albert on July 5th, come by the venues announced in this podcast and show your support.

Stay tuned...Season two of SaskScapes is about to launch with a great new line up of guests and a very exciting announcment to follow!
