Fiddle virtuoso Brian Sklar aka Captain Canada
on Calvin's induction to the Country Music Alberta Hall of Fame, April 2023

Podcast - The Story Behind the Tunes
Due to the pandemic, Calvin has created a podcast 'The Story Behind the Tunes'. Since he was unable to be out performing and telling the stories, this was a great alternative.
The 1st episode released Sunday November 15, 2020 and the final 69th episode launched June 19, 2022.
