Off tomorrow to Kleinburg's McMillan Gallery to see The Algonquin Ensemble with their new Sonic Palette project - an original musical experience based on Tom Thomson's art work - a full 100 years after his death.

The sextet is from the Ottawa area with Terry Tufts on the guitar(s) where he will be playing Linda Manzer's new 50 string guitar especially commissioned for this project - 0ne heck of an instrument!



The above show is sold out but also of interest to any guitar fanatic, is the Group of Seven guitar project where 8 unique, one-of-a-kind guitars designed for this project will be displayed. Designed and made by 7 of Canada's top luthiers (Manzer, Laskin, Larrivee etc), the guitars are each dedicated to a member of the Group of Seven. The 8th is a collaboration between the 7 luthiers. Show is on till October.

Should be a moving experience, both visually and musically.

if you are talking to terry please say hello from 'ets' for me if you would :)
Will do"ets" ... We may get a chance to talk to Terry and (his wife) Kathryn if they're not too busy. This weekend will be a whirlwind for them though, no doubt.

I love all the Gof7 works but Harris always spoke to me the most. The starkness combined with the blues and grays and his use of light. Hope to see the exhibit this year as well. With that berg acting as a horn, it sort of reminds me of an acoustic 'Iceman' model. I also need to see that Grit Laskin inlay work which is a masterpiece on its own.
