Lennie Gallant


Broadcast Date – October 11, 2017

It was totally enjoyable and then some when mega award-,winning singer/songwriter Lennie Gallant stopped by the studio. After packing in audiences for 4 smash seasons on PEI – Lennie’s taken his critically acclaimed multi-media musical production SEARCHING FOR ABEGWEIT on the road… beginning right here in Nova Scotia. We’ll talk about that show and so much more, including how he got his first guitar, the model and make of his first car, family, ghosts, inspiration and growing up on the Gentle Island.  Here’s my conversation with Lennie Gallant!
