November’s Top 5 Videos

Meaford is ideally situated, halfway between Owen Sound and Collingwood, to take advantage of a wealth of talent being presented live either right here in town or within half an hour’s drive.  While we can enjoy the best venue in the area right in the heart of town at Meaford Hall, and a hopping spot across the street at The Leeky Canoe, we can also venture over to Owen Sound where Heartwood Hall consistently presents high energy music from great Canadian bands, or to The Bruce Wine Bar for its dinner concerts that bring fine acoustic performers to its upstairs room, or The Huron Club in Collingwood which catches the finest touring singer-songwriters as they pass through the area.

In the past month this website tipped you off to everything that was happening in live music all around the southern shores of Georgian Bay and illustrated many posts with videos.  Here is what’s become a fun monthly feature, a Top 5 countdown of the most enjoyable videos posted on this site in November.

#5 – “Have You Heard From Your Heart” by Larry Jensen and Pete Devlin.  They were in town at the Leeky Canoe just a few days ago to showcase their new recording “Live From The Shed”.  This video presents one of Larry’s songs from that new release.

#4 – “Don’t Believe In Love” by The Peptides.  This Ottawa band sold out Heartwood Hall with their lively melodic technopop, vocal harmonies, and on stage showmanship.

#3 – “Come Rain Or Come Shine” by David Francey.  His stories and his songs are two sides of a single coin, as this folk-styled singer songwriter reflects on true experiences of his life.  His concert at Meaford Hall was a warm and intimate experience.

#2 – “That’s All Gone” by Kev Corbett. It’s ironic that this song contains the line, “I ain’t gonna worry, run around in a hurry,” because Kev Corbett’s songs seem to be in a hurry, bopping along with great fingerpicking and endless streams of catchy lyrics, lyrics that also shine with detail and insight.  He was one of the touring artists that played upstairs at The Bruce Wine Bar in November.

#1 – “Rummlegumption” by Jason Wilson.  He has a pretty impressive resume but doesn’t need it with songs like this.  He was another great act that was featured this past month at Heartwood Hall.
