Highly Recommended – Bill Craig, Irish/Traditional, Shepherd’s Crook, Friday, Aug 31 @ 8 pm

You won’t want to miss the music and wit of  Bill Craig.

Bill was born and raised in Ireland, and lived in London in 1973. He moved to Toronto in 1974. He first performed as a vocalist for various Rock ‘n Roll bands in Ireland in 1967.

In 1969, Bill began playing guitar on stage and has stayed with it as his main instrument ever since. Throughout this period, he maintained an interest in the music of his native Ireland, and would occasionally confuse, and usually please, rock audiences with a solo voice guitar rendition. Bill fills The Crook with a wide variety of sounds and a larger than life personality that works well in the room.

Kev Morse, Singer Songwriter, Uncorked on Main, Thursday, Sep 6 at 7 pm

Kev Morse writes from experience, sings from the heart and plays the guitar like it was meant for him to play. An evening spent listening to Kev play his guitar and sing his songs is like an evening spent with an old friend. His songs reach out, grab you, they hold on tight and they stay with you.kev m

Check out the outstanding “Happy Ever After” at the :45 mark here. This one should be in rotation on CBC Radio.
