But I'm referring, of course, to our recent gig. And some unfortunate people did miss it - too bad for them. It was great at the Old Mill's Home Smith Bar - a true musical delight, with each musician so enormously talented, combining technique and heart (many in the biz do not have both) - and on top of that, making the evening fun, and connecting with the audience - an additional talent not always seen.
Many members of the audience - so many - came up to tell me how much they were enjoying the evening, which to me is worth so much - priceless, as they say in the commercials. I seem to be quoting the world of advertising here.
A wonderful room in which to perform, and I'm glad all over to have been invited to sing there (4th time!!), and to have the musical friends I do.
So here are some pics, and a little clip of one of my songs - "My Honeyman". Don't know why it won't do it straight; it was normal on the camera, but it has flipped it sideways on the computer. sorry for the neck tension...
|me and norm amadio, in a very dark mood, apparently|
|another opportunity for torticollis - twisted neck - why does the computer do this?|
|diana braithwaite, chris whiteley (hidden), john deehan, ron johnston|
|le maitre du piano, norman amadio|
|chris whiteley, ron johnston and moi|
|myself and john deehan|
And other news,nothing to do with music, except that it's another reason to sing: the judge on the charges brought against the @#$%^ conservative government that we are unfortunate to have here in Canada, has made a ruling, and found that - surprise, surprise - there is evidence of interference. to whit, his words:
In a clear and bold statement, Judge Richard Mosley wrote: "I find that electoral fraud occurred during the 41st General Election."
Of course, the government will now lie, and say someone else hacked into their systems. They are so slimy and corrupt.
But we do have some more music news. The next gig:
