I have only just learned that Celtic guitarist extraordinaire Tony McManus is playing Ottawa at the first Baptist Church, 140 Laurier Ave W., 8PM, Saturday Nov 15, 2008. The show is being promoted by Fingerstyleguitar.ca and the Ottawa Folklore Centre. It's not uncommon for me to miss the odd happening (after all, I can't surf every promotor, sponsor, venue, artist schedule), but a certain very well known local Ottawa guitarist in the traditional music circle didn't know either (and he has Tony's email!). Such a stealthy approach would make my cat jealous! I've wanted to see Tony play live for a couple years now, and I won't get to go as this is very short notice and I have a previous commitment - friend's first, music second. So much for my 'circle of spies' out there! Please go see Tony if you can, and tell him I said 'hello' (he'll look at you funny, since I don't know him, but g'awn anyway).
