032816 George Porter Jr., New Orleans, LA

If you’re ever in New Orleans you’ve got to get to the Maple Leaf Bar for a show. There’s nothing classy about the classic dive but it’s been a live music institution for the last forty years or so in a town that knows its live music. On March 28th, 2016 I took my own advice and hopped the iconic St. Charles streetcar far from the French Quarter to the nondescript venue…

031120 Angela Hewitt, Ottawa, ON

This is the last concert I saw. Covid was just ramping up when I attended this wonderful show featuring Angela Hewitt playing the music of Bach, and while I enjoyed it immensely I sure am looking forward to seeing another concert sometime soon. Not since I started going to concerts at the age of fourteen have I gone a year without sharing a live musical performance with thousands of strangers, and I’m dying to do it again.
