Last week I sang at the re-opened Robson Square skating rink. As a Vancouver born and raised resident of this city, I'd like to say that I am simply delighted to see the skating rink being used once again. I feel very privileged to have been up on that beautiful stage putting on a great show for people of all ages with excellent musicians like the Hitmen. This was the kind of gig that felt like an intimate concert; people paid attention, children enchanted us with their dancing, everyone moved, sang along or clapped in time whenever we asked them to...... and the natural theatre shaped setting meant the energy flowed back and forth between the band and the audience exactly the way it is supposed to. It was the ancient campfire on a chilly winter night and everyone spoke the same musical language and I guess in a way, we were the storytellers.
I love nights like that.
