September’s Top 5 Videos

It’s fun to look back at the end of each month to re-visit some of the live music we enjoyed here in Meaford.  This site is often illustrated with video links to You Tube, to give you a sense of what to expect when you go out to catch someone live.  Although the songs included here were all performed in Meaford in this past month, the videos (with one exception) are from previous performances or produced music videos.

#5 – “Bonnie and May” by Allison Lupton. It was just last night that Allison performed with Ian Bell and Shane Cook at the Historical Leith Church, providing a taste of virtuoso traditional folk music.

#4 – “Cold Fish” by Zoe Young.  Count yourself lucky if you get to see Zoe perform live.  She’s a young woman just graduated from high school who hasn’t made music her prime objective, but this original song is witty and charming and deserved to be shared.  We recorded it in the sunroom of her home in Meaford.

#3 – “Carolina” by Larry Jensen.  An Owen Sound based singer-songwriter who has earned a great deal of respect over the years for his original songwriting, Larry Jensen visited Meaford this month for an evening at the Leeky Canoe.  In this clip he is accompanied by Pete Devlin, a local guitarist who has also gained respect locally for his inspired and sensitive guitar work, usually on display at the Wednesday jams at Ted’s and often featured at The Leeky Canoe.

#2 – “All The Time” by Bahamas.  Playing to a sold out crowd earlier this week at Meaford Hall, Afie Jurvanen, who goes by the name of Bahamas, delivered sensitive songs with some ethereal guitar work.  This beautiful song was featured in a TV ad that boosted his profile in the U.S. and Canada.

#1 – “Cows Around” by Corb Lund.  It’s impossible to pick a Corb Lund song that is better than the rest.  He played a rollicking show to a boisterous crowd this month at Meaford Hall.  He’s played here before and chances are he won’t be back, not because he doesn’t love playing the Opera House (who wouldn’t?) but because he is gaining popularity so fast he is likely to move to much larger venues before long.

This Top 5 video list has become a monthly indulgence on this site.  If you want to revisit some of the great music from the summer, check out August’s Top 5 Videos and July’s Top 5 Videos.
