Kaslo, a tiny, isolated mountain village nestled along the shores of magnificent Kootenay Lake in British Columbia’s rugged West Kootenay region, punches way above its weight class when it comes to music.
The venerable Kaslo Jazz Festival, with its stunning setting and floating main stage, has been called one of the 10 best places to enjoy summer music in the world by both USA Today and Reuters. The Kuimba Choir, the Langham music series, Kaslo Hotel and Angry Hen open mic nights, and bands ranging from Small Town Artillery to Moontricks ensure that the beat is always going on in this village of 1,000.
The latest example of Kaslo’s civic musicality? Propel Studios.
Situated directly above the lake, in the heart of the town, Propel is a fully-equipped, state-of-the-art recording studio. On today’s RADIO FREE KASLO, host RG Morse visits the studio, has a conversation with musician Steven Lee, there for a recording session, and takes in some live tunes, “in the raw.”
