As music overtakes the city this weekend, it seems our neighbourhood is on the bluegrass side of the street: St. Paul’s Anglican Church (across the street from us at 101 Prince St.), not otherwise known as a hotbed of funky rhythm, is bluegrass central all weekend long. Oliver and I are going over for the Bluegrass Songwriters Circle 2:00 p.m. this afternoon; there’s more bluegrass action tonight from 7:00 p.m. onwards, and again at the same time tomorrow. Somewhere in the middle I assume they’ll break for some solemn old tyme religion.
For time-delayed action, radio@upei is blogging and podcasting. I especially like this Catherine Maclellan set (I see Catherine all the time at the Formosa Tea House, and only learned last week, after seeing her on Compass, that she’s a musician).
