Here's Where It's At (Montreal Edition) live blues/roots for the week starting January 21 (and beyond) courtesy of Cha Cha Cha In Blue on CKUT 90,3FM:
Designed for aspiring young musicians ages 13 to 17, the Blues Camp offers teens an exceptional opportunity to take part in a week of high-level musical training devoted entirely to the blues and is absolutely free! Some 3,400 youngsters have auditioned for the camp in the past eleven years, and of them, 600 have been chosen to experience this incredible adventure. This once-in-a-lifetime Camp brings together music fans from all across Québec and even Ontario. Earning a chance at participating in the Blues Camp is simple. All you have to do is pass an audition of about 10 minutes: there are no set pieces of music you have to play and you don’t require an in-depth knowledge of the blues genre to be accepted (please view the explanatory videos by clicking on the “How to prepare” tab).Based on the auditions, approximately 50 musicians are selected—including keyboard players, trumpeters, trombonists, drummers, guitarists, bass players, singers and harmonica players—to experience this intense week of musical dreams. The highlight is the final concert on the main stage of the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal, where our teens will interpret an existing piece of music and perform an original composition (music and lyrics) produced by the band they formed just a few days before. Registration begins January 5th, 2018; Auditions: Saturday, March 24, 2018; Camp: June 30 to July 6, 2018 http://www.campdeblues.com/home.aspx

Que de la musique, sans frontière, entre amis, tout ça dans l’atmosphère chaleureuse qu’offre le Dièse Onze. On vous attend tous les dimanches, pour un standard ou deux. Apportez vos partitions ou votre tonalité. Kim Richardson - voix / John Sadowy - piano / Karl Surprenant - contrebasse. Cover Charge: voluntary contribution
