So, as you can see I’ve been busy enjoying summer in Montreal and I’ve sort of neglected this blog.
I can’t promise that I’ll be back here on a regular basis because I like to keep this fun and spontaneous. For now, here are some photos of summer events and happenings that I took part in during the summer.
I had fun and it went by way too fast!
Here is a small playlist featuring the songs that got the most airplay on my iPod this summer
A month ago while listening to the radio, I heard a beautiful song. Once it was over, the host mentioned the name of the band: Lemon Bucket Orkestra. I quickly bought their album and was hooked, so when I saw that they were playing at the Montreal Jazz Festival this year, I was really happy!
They are from Toronto and their music is a hybrid of many influences, from traditional Ukrainian folk to Balkan dance to punk rock.
Here’s a quick listen:
And here are some photos of their set last Sunday. If you are in town, they will be playing again today and tomorrow between 1PM and 3PM (they move around the festival grounds so look for the big group of people with instruments, a belly dancer and a happy crowd formed around them).
Notre-Dame-des-neiges is the largest cemetery in all of Canada. Located in the middle of the city, it is easily accessible and is a great place for a long, contemplative walk, especially during the cold days of this fall season.
