Music is in the air!

It’s not just the birds that I am talking about either. London, Ontario is going to be blessed with some fabulous entertainment this weekend that you just won’t want to miss. I am talking Indie, folk, opera, country, jazz, rock and some good old-fashioned choral music. Sit back and enjoy some toe-tapping tunes in formal to laid-back settings; enough to tempt any musical lover out there. The challenge will be to decide who to see!

  • Fred Eaglesmith – April 6th, 2013 from  7 – 11 pm at the London Music Club. A taste of Bluegrass, a dash of country, a bit of rock and a whole lot of originality is what you get when listen to Fred Eaglesmith.

  • Ana Moura – April 6th, 2013 from 7 pm – 12 am at the Aeolian Hall (795 Dundas St E). At just 25 years old, this soulful Portuguese vocalist has made an international name for herself in the traditional fado-style of music of her homeland. Her voice is poetry in motion, touching on themes of lost love, separation and longing, that reaches out to the listener regardless of the language. The concert is in coordination with Sunfest.

If you haven’t made it to choir practice in a while, make a point of being inspired by these singers.
