The CBC tv performance special recieved good positive feedback. I haven't heard of any thing negative (such as wearing my flashes wrong) – other than Burns was a full-time excise man.
There have been two comments asking if the CBC show will be re-broadcast and if the show is available for purchase. My answer to both is: “I'm sorry, I don't know.”
Please call CBC Vancouver at 604-662-6000 or toll free audience relations number: 1-866-306-4636.
It would be wonderful if “Gung Haggis Fat Choy” could be re-broadcast for St. Patrick's Day, March 17th. I think public influence could really let CBC know how appreciated this little experiment in multicultural programming was. Then, maybe it could be an hour long national program for next year!
Could you imagine East Coast fiddling sensation Natalie McMaster having a showdown with a virtuoso on erhu (two string Chinese violin)? or how about Sarah McLachlan performing with her South Asian husband Ashwin Sood on tabla drums… creating an Asian feel for one of her songs… or how about ballet principal Chan Hon Goh, performing to a piano solo by Jon Kimura Parker?
