This week’s creative shout out goes to the musicians.
We may not have the live music venue options of Melbourne or Sydney, but we sure do have some kick arse musos mingling amongst us; and they come in all genres, shapes and ages.
Rock, reggae, folk, funk (sometimes lacking), jazz, classic, metal, mellow, indie, prog, punk, acoustic, electric, blah blah the list goes on…
Canberra, like anywhere, has its little circles. The metal people generally hang out with the metal people, the folk people hang out with the folk people, the punks with the punks, etc. These natural groupings create what are known as ‘scenes’. Happy communities where like minded people get their freak on in their own way.
Personally, I give a big thumbs up to the Canberra Musician’s Club (CMC). A mix of many genres but mainly acoustic singer-songwriters, a welcoming vibe, frequent events, non-age bias, quality music, quality people, lots of alcohol while remaining kid friendly, and a real nurturing of up-and-coming songwriters.
Let us know which music groups are doing good things, and where!
