Culture Vultures, Daniel and Lynn were back in the studio for our monthly trip around the Guelph Art Scene on May 6. Great fun, as usual. There must have been something in the air as we were decidedly giddy this time around. Cool music, fun events. Hope you enjoy it.

This month we had one special group pick, Harry Manx Helps Sue. Blues Guitarist Harry Manx will be back in Guelph for a special concert for good friend of Royal City Rag, Sue Richards. Sue is battling Parkinson’s Disease. As an artist she doesn’t have the benefit of the health insurance policy those of us more fortunate often take for granted.

The show takes place at Guelph Little Theatre on June 13  at 7.30 p.m.  Also on the bill: Tannis Slimmon & the Uplifters, Brenda McMorrow, Jessy Bell-Smith, with emcee Jane Miller, magic by Ben Caesar, piano by Jeremy Shute and a photo exhibition by the Guelph Photo Club. Tickets are available at Wild Rose 519-763-2233, Ground Floor Music 519-827-1444 or online at www.helpingfriends.ca.

Margo Timmins, lead singer of the Cowboy Junkies, will be making a rare solo appearance at the River Run in Guelph on November 6th at 8 p.m.

Margo plans to sing songs by some of her favourite musicians like Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Leonard Cohen, Bruce Cockburn and Bruce Springsteen.

“The definitive feature of the Cowboy Junkies’ sound … is Margo Timmins’ remarkable voice. Etheral and cool…” said Rolling Stone magazine.
Margo will be backed up by the allstar trio of Jeff Bird, Randall Coryell and Kevin Breit. The concert will begin with a performance by local musician Jesse Bell Smith.
The City of Music concert is being presented by The Woolwich Arrow Pub and The Borealis Grille & Bar. The ticket price of $20 balcony or $30 ground floor includes $10 in gift certificates from the sponsoring restaurants.
