Live music with Duncan Cameron
Casual listeners, as well as ardent music fans, enjoy Duncan Cameron’s skillful performance of rock and country hits, as well as his selections of traditional Celtic songs and fiddle tunes. Traditional Irish, English and French-Canadian musicians have contributed much of Cameron’s repertoire, but classical, country and funk have also added to his unique approach.
His use of a looper and other technology to enhance his sound makes his solo shows unexpectedly rich in timbre and range. Along with his music, Cameron shares a sense of humour, and a gentle and engaging manner with his listeners.
He performs at La Fromagerie, 80 Elgin St., on July 18 at 8 p.m.
Comedy at the Fromo
Comedy is back at La Fromagerie, 80 Elgin St., on July 27. The night features Naughty Nana Duz, Alice Rose, Lesley Lynn and Stephanie Hrechka, and is hosted by Jessica Grillanda. Showtime is at 8 p.m. Get there early for good seats. There is a $10 cover.
