I love the use of the word “nimble” in this national review. Cheers to Brad Wheeler from The Globe and Mail.
A lovely, lovely contemporary painter (who dropped by the concert in Montreal) Suzanne Caron has, from time to time, done paintings based on snippets of songs or poetry of mine. I am a huge fan of colour, though you might not know that from the blacks and grays I wear. Seeing this makes me happy. The snippet (included in the painting at the bottom): You take yours and I’ll take mine/And we’ll leave the rest all behind/Dip our memories in turpentine/Watch the colours run down Providence Line.
This is a very cool space to see music, surrounded by wood and machinery, with great sound and lighting.
From Michael Greenfield, Luthier;
“I have organized an intimate series of concerts which take place right here in my workshop! I have no interest in becoming a concert promoter, want to keep this REALLY simple and 100% of the proceeds go to the artists! As there are only 50 seats available, please RSVP at your earliest convenience to let me know how many places to reserve for you. Your cash donation will be collected at the door. As these concerts take place in my workshop, please do not bring any food or beverage.”

A former church, The Guelph Black Heritage Society hall was built during the 1880′s and taken over by the GBHS only recently. It is hoped that this concert will be the first of many to take place there. We’re happy and honoured to be the first.
A rehearsal for a performance a few weeks ago captured on an iPhone by reed player Rob Carli. I don’t often sing other people’s songs…not saying that is a good thing. It’s hard to do—for me, at any rate— but there is usually a pay off when I finally figure a way into the lyric. What started out as a chore singing this song turned into to something quite the opposite when it came time to perform. What a great job I have…
