Allan Rayman, Dan Aykroyd + Lissie

Allan Rayman is an enigmatic man whose career has thrived off the “mysterious” with a minimalist approach to media, social interaction and counter to most norms of today’s industry conventions. In a rare conversation, he sits down for an acoustic moment with George to reveal his story, his origins and cover The Wallflowers.
Dan Aykroyd is a Blues Brothers, a Ghostbuster, an OG member of Saturday Night Live, and his current life chapter revolves around his entrepreneurial spirits. He sits down with George to explore the power of luck, the beginnings, his motorcycle adventures, the art of political satire, the war on drugs, the potential of a ‘Trading Places‘ remake, the supernatural and seances in his family farmhouse.
Lissie, from the blue-collar Midwestern riverside and the granddaughter of an international barbershop quartet champion, went west and established her name through cafes, festivals and melodies over the past decade. She recently released a stripped-back sound with ‘Castles‘ and visits the House Of Strombo to deliver those songs and the stories behind.
We celebrate the life and song of Saint Bruce Cockburn on his 73rd birthday through covers of his work, recorded in the House Of Strombo, performed by friends of the show, Barenaked Ladies and Hawksley Workman.
