**KEEP AN EAR TO THE STREETS FOR NEW UPCOMING PRODUCTION FROM THE BODYDONNAZ
During the Junofest festivities here in the Nation’s Capital the bywardofmouth team caught up with East Coast folk-rock hero Ben Caplan where he was performing at the First Baptist Church on Laurier and Elgin. Ben put on a show to remember inside the unique and beautiful church setting – it was an impressive demonstration of his amazing vocal and instrumental talents.
After his set the Halifax, Nova Scotia native was nice enough to give us some of his time for a brief interview. We spoke with Ben in the church basement about his previous Juno experiences as well as the European tour which he is currently on (check out his blog here for updates). We also discussed his new overseas record deal and his personal musical influences.
Another topic of discussion was that in a recent government budget cut the well known young adult development program Katimavik suffered sever funding cuts. A Katimavik alumni himself, Ben spoke very passionately about his feelings regarding the cuts, his belief in the importance of the program and his intention of supporting its future.

Ghostface Killah of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan was in Canada for the first time in over 14 years. Ottawa was the only city in his tour to experience 2 back-to-back sold out shows. The clan veteran was accompanied by Sheek Louch of the mighty D-Block, Killah Priest and several members of the Theodore unit and the Gods did not disappoint the high expectations that the National Capital had for them.
The show was incredible, featuring all the Wu classics from over the years as well as hidden Ghostface gems and more. The bywarofmouth team was on site both nights, so if you missed out on this one of a kind piece of Canadian musical history don’t worry – check out our exclusive interview below.
