A Ridiculous Amount of Great Music

This weekend in Toronto is the Canadian Aboriginal Festival (turn down your volume before clicking!). I didn't post on it beforehand, but I was part of a great show that took place as part of the festival at Revival Bar on the 23rd. On the bill was Andrea Menard, Leela Gilday (who's new CD is now available and fantastic) and Tamara Podemski (multiple CAMA award winner! she's unstoppable), all of them dizzyingly multi-talented artists.

The night before at the NOW Lounge, I was treated to Leela and her sublime band's performance of her new CD, with the incomparable Rhonda Stakich warming things up.

This much beauty and talent over the course of two days really is quite ridiculous.

And in honor of the Canadian Aboriginal Festival, and just because, have a quick read of what the US and Canadian governments are trying to block: the UN's Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Done? Now write to your MP or Congressman and set them straight.
