With the fall/winter tour season coming up and the 2017-2018 hockey and basketball seasons upon us, fans are getting geared up to watch their beloved Maple Leafs and Raptors or favourite artists at the Air Canada Centre.

We had the chance to go backstage at Tin Pan North Songwriters Festival and have a chat with Canadian country icon and t.v host Beverly Mahood and talk about her new album, touring with acts like Kenny Rogers, her involvement in the community, her old band Lace and what she has planned for the future!

Have you ever wondered why you sound like an opera god/goddess when you’re in the shower, but when you try to sing to your friends, they cover their ears?
