GRUMPY’S CHICK PICKIN’ MONDAYS 1242 Bishop Street http://chickpickin.wix.com/home http://www.facebook.com/ChickPickinMondays 
Lundi le 9 janvier Host: Aly Marguerite & Old Time Honey; Guest: Catriona Sturton sings like an angel, plays like a beast.  After learning to file harmonica reeds in a back alley, Catriona toured Canada as the bassist for Halifax teen-rockers, Plumtree (whose song, Scott Pilgrim, inspired the cult-favourite book and movie of the same name).  She’s played in Europe with Italian harmonica wizards, traveled with a Hiroshima-based garage rock band, was a guest on The Price is Right and has been to more places in remote Canada than most people ever get to.  In the next few months you can find her on tours of the United States, playing with some of the country’s best harmonica players, The East Coast of Canada, and Ontario with The Noisy Locomotive.
Lundi le 16 janvier, 21h30 Host: Aly Marguerite & Old Time Honey; Guest: Effy Silver is a jazz influenced alternative acoustic artist from Toronto, Ontario. With music described as a cross between Amy whinhouse and Daniel Ceaser, her smooth sound will leave you forgetting where you parked the car.
