Listen to Father John Misty, Mac DeMarco and John Paul White perform exclusive sessions

Editorial Staff

It was great while it lasted.

Last year, CBC Music held three intimate sessions with three renowned singer-songwriters at an unlikely location. b.b. gun leather was a tiny, rustic workshop in a garage in East Vancouver, and it's where Father John Misty, John Paul White (formerly of the Civll Wars) and Mac DeMarco each performed separately to a small, invite-only audience.

All three did stripped-down versions of some of their best original material, and each artist did a special cover as well. Father John Misty's incredible version of Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs" has been viewed on YouTube almost two million times — check that out that, and other BB Gun Session video performances, below.

Even though b.b gun leather has shuttered its doors, these sessions have been compiled into a radio program called Open Air, hosted by Grant Lawrence, which will be heard across B.C. at 5 p.m. local time on CBC Radio One on Saturday, Oct. 28. If appointment listening isn't your thing, you can listen to the entire show below.
