and the Juno goes to….

28 Mar

Last night was Canada’s biggest night in music. It was the 40th annual Juno awards. I watch the award show every year, but this year it was different. I was far more interested this year. The reason I was more interested was because I had seen a number of the nominees perform live previously. In the last few years, Peter Meades, of Bayfield Ontario created the Bayfield Concert series, bringing in talent from all over Canada. Royal Wood, Basia Bulat, Hannah Georgas, and Justin Rutledge were all at this years Juno, and I had seen them all perform this year as well thanks to Peter.

These are not the only talents Meades has brought our way, Ron Sexsmith came last summer, and in case you do not know who Ron Sexsmith is, let me help you out, Michael Buble claimed him to be one of the most talented people he had ever worked with, oh and he also had dinner at Paul McCartney’s house, no biggy or anything!  Pete also has booked many hip hop shows which include Maestro Fresh Wes, Choclair and Ghettosocks, who was up for his first juno award, in the same category as Drake!  So, if you are a fan of live music. Good live music for that matter, you do not have to travel far to get to see some seriously incredible acts! The more I think about it, the more reasons I find that you never need to leave Huron County 😉

14 Mar

Its only a few sleeps away until one of the most exciting days of the year, ST PATRICKS DAY! The day when suddenly everyone is Irish, and drinking in the a.m becomes not only acceptable, but also encouraged! St Patrick’s day is exciting enough on its own, however this year its even more exciting! That evening, Canadian singer-songwriter, guitarist, and record producer Colin James will be playing at the town hall in Bayfield for the Bayfield Concert series! This is huge! Colin James was actually the first concert I ever attended. I was in grade 5 and it was at the Western fair, now a million years later he is still touring across the country with his next stop in Bayfield! This show is going to be insane. Do not miss out on this one! See you all there!
