Music at the Market

One of the delights of summer farmer's markets is not only the incredible selection of fresh local produce but fresh local music - here is my niece Fran on cello as part of a trio in Trinity Bellwoods. Delightful!

I have also encountered postie Vera Colley at the Liberty Village Market - Vera has a great duo sometimes trio with her man Johnny called "Whoa, Nellie" - doing country and folk influenced tunes, particularly country swing - with Vera on accordian.

Last minute notice tonight - not a farmer's market but the lovely and talented Yvette Tollar with Dave Restivo - also lovely and talented at 401 Richmond - a "Summer Coffeehouse" concert series presented by Donald Quan - it starts around 8ish - it's also PWYC. It also features an actual grand piano!

Don't forget two wonderful singers at the Rex tomorrow - starting with Sophia Perlman for the early show and later Melissa Stylianou in town from New York.

On Friday, if you are in the Waterloo area - check out my friend Brenda Lewis and guitarist Margaret Stowe at the Seven Shores cafe on 8 Regina Street North, Unit 5.
