I thought I would miss Bluesfest...

...since I have not been going. So, I guess that may have something to do with it. BUT, I just stumbled upon James R. Skinner's music events page on YouTube.com. Holy smokes! Seems he's got every Ottawa musical event covered. He shoots videos like I shoot photos. No need to go out in person anymore... especially when you can just sit at home and play endless hours of audio/video footage of: WestFEST, Bluesfest, Tulipfest, snowbowl, Winterlude, and the list goes on - even goes back a few years, too. Okay, maybe not hours. His clips last anywhere from 30 seconds to 2 minutes in length. It's just that there are thirteen pages of videos to get through. Wow.

Can't wait to see if he'll get some footage of Kathleen Edwards. UPDATE: Yes he did.

Pssst! hey, Amanda, there are several clips of Ron Sexsmith live in concert you might enjoy watching. Emm Gryner is in the list, by the way. Brilliant job, James.

Don't forget to check out his "Downsized Privatized Mounties at Tulipfest 2005". A classic masterwork of video production. Two thumbs way up.

Thanks, I've seen some of these, but not the Massey Hall clip!

Yeah there is no way I would miss seeing Kathleen Edwards at Bluesfest. :-) There was a really big crowd and she put on a great show. The whole evening at the Blues 'Til Dusk stage was filled with great Ottawa talent that night.

Thanks again, James. Kudos on the videos for us stay-at-homers.
