Ellwood Epps hosts If You Got Ears


Montreal’s maddest-hatter, Ellwood Epps, is picking up where Xarah Dion left off… The improvising trumpeter is hosting If You Got Ears for the month of March. In this role, Epps will be highlighting some of the best improvisers in our city, as well as giving us a sneak peak to what’s hip at this years Festival of New Trumpet Music. Catch him, while you can, every Wednesday from noon to 14h on thee mighty CKUT! ‘To whet your appetite, here’s a recent release by Epps himself.




Went on a pretty epic hike through Mont Royal park this weekend and got to watch a lot of cute dogs playing in the snow, which may be my number one favourite thing about winter. It’s turned out to be a record-breaking February for temperatures here in Montreal — good thing we’re a tough city, huh?

Hope you are staying warm wherever you are,

We’re very excited to be welcoming local label Art Not Love into the studio to curate our March edition of the Montreal Sessions. Here’s a sneak peek at what they’ve got in store for the next month:

This March, Art Not Love records will be taking over CKUT’s Montreal Sessions and inviting their friends from in and around the label to talk about their process as independent artists. Expect to hear how music rules their lives, their personal approach to their work, and where they plan to take things in the not so distant future! Guests will include Rushing Silver, Saxsyndrum, Ari Swan, Robby Reis, DirtyOrgans, Jef Barbara and more in studio with ANL’s Charlie Twitch and Peggy Hogan. “Art Not Love unifies non-genre-normative art and music. We encourage the sacred practice of masochistic submission to craft and style.”

Catch them on the air every Tuesday in March from 3-5pm, starting this afternoon! Stream it live via ckut.ca, or check out full audio archives HERE.
