Denielle Bassels, seemingly omnipresent on Toronto stages since the Lula Lounge release of her debut CD, What About Wool Wishbags, last February,
is prepping new material for a showcase at Burdock this Saturday evening.
She should be beaming up around 6:00 Friday with inklings and intimations of what to expect.
Tune in for the brightness she sings.

Forty tall ships, carrying more than 3000 crew members, whisked into the historic docks of the Ville De Quebec harbour in July, and stayed a week for a nautical rendez-vous: RDV 2017.
RDV 2017 was a signature Canada 150 event held in celebration of Canada’s maritime heritage. Her majesty's Canadian Ship Toronto, 1904 steam tug Black Jack out of Belleville, and El Galeon from Pirates of the Caribbean were amongst the nautical attendees.
The surrounding environs rang with celebration, culture, & music, and pulsed with the deep beat of a rawhide-covered canoe: David Hynes unique art instrument :
Above, Marc Gourdeau, the Artistic Director of the event, Commander Dave and artist co-ordinator Katea.

A convergence of tall ships, small ships and music galore. Quebec, je t'adore.
