24 Jul 2010, 02:20 by jplaskettAlready a household name in Canada, with a clutch of awards and six albums to his name, Joel Plaskett is coming to Brighton as part of an attempt to break the European market.
Before playing a show in London he talks to Duncan Hall about coming to his father’s homeland, and turning his award-winning triple disc album Three into one CD for the UK market.
DH: You’ve already scooped a Juno Award in your home country, and can fill clubs and theatres in North America - why turn your attention to Europe now?
JP: I have always felt a connection with this part of the world. My father was from Dagenham, in Essex. He emigrated to Canada in the 1960s.
The UK is very different from home, but it is a place that influences the world as far as music goes. For such a geographically small country it has a lot going for it. If you look at a history of pop, rock and folk music, so much of it is influenced by England.
DH: How does it compare to playing in your hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia?

Three important elements of a good outdoor music concert: 1. Good music. 2. Good weather. 3. Good people. All three of these were accomplished at the annual Alderney Landing Canada Day show in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. It was a beautiful sunny day that attracted thousands of people of all different ages to the stage of Alderney Landing. The show this year contained some of Canada’s best singer/songwriter treasures.
The show started off in the middle of the afternoon with the Prince Edward Island born and raised musician taking to the stage to play a few tracks from her discography. She took to the stage by herself with only her acoustic guitar entertaining the crowd with banter in between tracks talking about her roots on the Island. She also drew a few chuckles and smiles as she introduced a new song she wrote from the perspective of coffee showing her sense of humour and charm.

5 Jul 2010, 18:56 by dvdmylesHi folks,
Summer is here! I just spent a week in southern Ontario. Had a great time playing at NXNE (North by NorthEast festival) with the trio then stuck around to do a house concert in beautiful Stratford with Matthew Barber and a songwriters showcase in London (ON). All were great. Thanks so much to Andrew Shaver for the hosting such a great party in Stratford.
He had a great vibe going on. Sweet loft, packed with theatre folk. Very cool. Since then I've been enjoying being home. We (Nina and I) went sailing on the weekend. Went down to Mahone Bay with my good friend Old Man Luedecke, his wonderful wife Teresa and boat captains Eric and Marla. We had a blast. The first ocean swim of the year! Not sure if you knew this but swimming is pretty much my favourite thing to do. I'm going to be rocking as much lake/ocean swimming as I can this summer. Here's a few photos of our trip. Thanks to Eric and Marla for the good times!

Massey Hall is arguably the most famous stage in Toronto. The acoustics are spectacular, and the majority of the seats have excellent site lines. Opened in 1894, and designated as a Heritage Property in 1975, Massey Hall has hosted such venerable performers and dignitaries such as King George V and his wife Queen Mary, Winston Churchill, the Dalai Lama, Luciano Pavarotti, George Gershwin, Oscar Peterson, and Bob Dylan among many, many others. Many famous live albums have been recorded there, including Charlie Parker-Dizzy Gillespie Complete Jazz at Massey Hall (1953), Rush’s 1976 live album All The World's A Stage, and more recently Neil Young’s Live At Massey Hall 1971 release in 2007. Massey Hall is also where Jeff Tweedy of Wilco infamously called the staid Toronto crowd “motherfuckers” for not dancing during their rock show. In the crowd’s defense (I was at that Wilco show too) Massey Hall isn’t exactly conducive to rockin’ out…
