2:10 The Whistle and Hum tour - Anna van Riel - Lake Hawea singer songwriter, Anna van Riel's tour across Canada and America is humming along. You may remember we spoke to Anna in November last year when she was raising money for her Whistle and Hum tour by performing concerts for people in their homes, making dinner, selling earthworm farms: all sorts of innovative methods.
The plan was to travel to Vancouver and across the Western USA... performing house concerts in eco-conscious homes in exchange for room and board. And the plan is working like a charm. She's travelling with her husband and 2 and a half year old daughter Matilda, who was born with a rare condition that required 3 major surgeries .
Anna van Riel talks to Jim Mora from a tiny town called Darby Montana south of Missoula.
