Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.
Brad and I just got back from our anniversary trip, which I'll share more about next week.
Our vacation was launched in style with a Lyle Lovett concert, and I'm home in time for two Rush concerts which I'm seeing with my Rush-superfan sister Michelle.
So here's a wee taste of those shows, plus some extra fun thrown in.
1 - You Can't Resist It - Lyle Lovett
Lyle had a 5-piece band for his show here last week, and they did this one to great appreciation from an adoring crowd.
2 - Angel - Haywire
This band hails from Prince Edward Island, where Brad and I began our vacation. Go, drummer Sean Kilbride! Brother of my high school sweetheart.
4 - Butterfinger's Medley - JP Cormier and Dave Gunning
And now up to Cape Breton. JP Cormier is a Cape Bretoner, while Dave Gunning hails from Pictou County, just a stone's throw from the island on Nova Scotia's mainland.
This begins with a story -- music begins at the 1:28 mark.
4 - Various traditional Celtic tunes - John Allan Cameron
Here's the musician to whom they were paying tribute in the previous tune. If you look closely in the background of several different performances in this tribute clip, you'll see a very young Anne Murray, Bruce Cockburn and Ashley MacIsaac.
5 - YYZ - Rush
Woo hoo! Tonight, babies!
And then again on Sunday night!
YYZ is the airport code for Toronto, my other home and my honey's hometown. Kind of full circle after my Big City man went on his first vacation exploring the Maritimes to have a slice of Toronto drop on by this weekend.
