Salon: n. a meeting of intellectuals or other eminent people at the invitation of a celebrity or socialite.
Side Door Access is a Halifax-based company that sets up small intimate shows in private spaces–homes, stores, restaurants, small venues, wherever–for artists who want to perform in front of audiences in a very intimate sort of way. Any artist can sign up and virtually anyone can host.
While I can’t sing or play anything, I can talk a little. That’s why SDA has set up a series of speaking gigs across Ontario where music fans can get together and talk about virtually anything.
The evening (or afternoon, as it may be) will start with me pontificating on something from the world of music punctuated by a variety of Ongoing History-like stories. From there, we’ll move into a wide-ranging Q&A discussion.
Here are the dates in the weeks ahead. Click on the links for more information and tickets.
