Is this thing on???

Ok, so I started this blog as a random thing, not sure of a lot of things such as who would my audience be? Why would I write, and what would I write? I am pretty sure I am not a writer, and pretty sure I have no idea how to set this thing up…

The sounds of summer in the Hood

Oh, the joys of summer, a glass of wine, the fireflies are flying and dancing to the local music in my front garden.  It seems there is always something going on, several nearby neighbourhood restaurants and a couple of patios, the life of leisure does amazing outdoor courtyard events, and the sounds carry far and…

It is all about the numbers!

This new world of blogging, and internet and facebook and sharing stuff! Oh, my goodness. I keep saying I am not a writer, but I take photos, each and every day I take at least one photo and love to share them with friends on Facebook.  On Facebook, my friend’s friends can see the photos…

There is nothing like local folk…

This evening I attended the local folk VI at the magical Aeolian Hall.  Each show I attend at the Aeolian Hall, it is mentioned in the introductions at the start of each show how live music is magic by the hosts, Steve, Matt, Michael almost always. There is also a framed poster by the elevator…

Places I have been…

In the wise words of Dr. Seuss,” oh the places you will go, you have shoes on your feet and brains in your head!” I love that quote, really any Dr. Seuss quote will do. This one seems fitting in my world, simply because that seems to be how I decide what event I will take in.  Ticket price is…

The Benefits of Live Music

When I set out to attend the Aeolian Hall once a month, as part of my yearly goals it was merely to put things in writing and see if I could actually commit to it! Well low and behold I did that and then some of course, with my 100 events attended in 2017. Going…

Down the Rabbit Hole…

Down the rabbit hole has become a rather fascinating and intriguing line of thought for me, in my quest to attend to local music events and find the most amazing talented musicians that London, Ontario has.  A few years ago, random and coincidentally I met a lovely woman named Mandy Verge, on Facebook first, and…

So, this really happened….

So this really happened! The interview, getting my story shared.  I was at city hall just before Christmas, enjoying the magical music of Bill Needham and Paul Aitken of Broomsticks and Hammers , playing Christmas music and some beautiful music from their new CD Mirrorbox .   It was a lunch time performance, hosted by the…

The London Music Office~Social Media Event

On Monday evening, March 5th, 2018, I joined a keen group of local London people to share and learn more about Social Media in the music industry, mainly for musicians.  It was so very fascinating from the get go! I know names of the local London musicians, but not faces, and of course I knew…

My Story

This is the story of my 100 music events for 2017, all local London, Ontario Music with a few St. Mary’s and Stratford events. The story of my new found interest in local London music actually began on the eve of my 49th birthday, End of June 2014. I decided I was going to set…
