Haley’s Hometown Dreams

Thursday 8th December / presented by Caitlin Nienaber

When Haley Bonar was 19, she was playing a gig in Duluth, Minnesota when Alan Sparhawk from Low introduced himself and invited her to support his band on tour.

Now she’s 33, and she’s spent the past decade and a half playing shows and making albums on her own terms, while gaining a loyal fanbase along the way.

The Canadian musician, who has lived in the US for most of her life has just released her latest album Impossible Dream.

Caitlin Nienaber caught up with Haley who was still reeling from the result of the US Election and asked her if she could see anything potentially positive in a Trump presidency.
