Bluegrass at Raw Sugar


in Daily updates, Music, Ottawa

Residents of Centretown should consider attending the beer and bluegrass evening taking place tonight at Raw Sugar (692 Somerset W). The event will run between 8:00pm and 10:00pm.

While I cannot recall the name of the band that will be performing, I am told their last session was enjoyable and well received.

[Update] The lead performer is Miles Howe, and he will be bringing along a number of other singers and musicians.

They were, ah, real folksy. You know? Like they had their mandolins (or just one, or whatever) and, uh, everyone had a good time. It was pretty cool for the Ottawa scene.

Raw Sugar’s a good venue.

It is quite a good informal setting for music, though the seating opportunities are rather limited.

In a subsequent Raw Sugar music night, I saw Lisa Poushinsky and Brian Simms perform Tom Waits covers. They were very entertaining.

Zoom has a description of the evening here.

A similar experience can be obtained at the music nights on Saturday nights in the winter at the Hollyburn cross – country ski lodge on Cypress Mountain in West Vancouver. There is bluegrass this weekend. This can be preceded by a brisk afternoon of cross-country skiing or snowshoeing . The snow is quite good this year.
