A little music on a Thursday
Steve found a fantastic deal on RedFlagDeals for free Van Morrison tickets at the Hummingbird Centre Thursday evening. The tickets were priced at $172.88 each for balcony seating, so paying a mere $4.75 for two tickets (for a service charge) was an incredible bargain.

The 90-minute set was excellent. The arrangements were blues-inspired including a rendition of "Have I Told You Lately". It was thoroughly entertaining, although I must admit I was hoping he'd break out into the version of "Moondance" I remember from The Best of Van Morrison CD I once owned (but lost while living in Ottawa).

After the concert, we made our way to C'est What? where we were fortunate to hear singer/songwriter Kate Schutt perform live. Kate plays a Novax 8-string guitar/base hybrid instrument while singing wonderfully melodic jazz songs (she has a fantastic voice that reminded me a little of Jewel and Norah Jones). After an enjoyable evening, I picked up her "No Love Lost" album on the way out the door. She's playing at the Beaches Int'l Jazz Festival in Toronto on Sunday, July 22nd from 5-7pm... try to catch her if you can.
