An absolute joy to listen to, and talk with! If you missed the interview with Theresa Sokyrka on Nash Holos Ukrainian Roots Radio a couple of weeks ago, or would like to hear it again, you can catch it on the Interviews page at the Nash Holos website.
We chatted about her music career, her Ukrainian roots, her experience on Canadian Idol, and other things.

Here she is singing Ukraine's antional anthem, also in Dauphin.
And one of my fave jazz tunes:
