After seeing the film 'Flamenco, Flamenco' at the 2011 Jazz Festival - when I heard that Carlos Saura was bringing his staged presentation of Flamenco Hoy, I knew we had to go. My wife has a deep fondness for spanish gypsy music and dancing. I love that the Festival includes events like this in the program.

When camping in Elora Gorge Park a few years ago, my family and I set up tent just in time for an unusually southern display of the Aurora Borealis. We did not know what we were seeing for quite some time and at first thought it was somehow reflections of car headlights from a highway. We lied back on the ground and just watched for an hour. The soundtrack I played during that time was Tangerine Dream's classic early 70s album 'Zeit'.

I have seen clips of this performance on youtube and it looks amazing. Miche Braden's interpretation of Bessie Smith in such an intimate location as the Cinquiemme Salle, I'm sure will be one of this year's highlights and it's a welcome addition to just straight music shows at the festival.

I have only one Patrick Watson album but thought that I should try to see him as he plays in his hometown Montreal. He reminds me of Jeff Buckley but also Antony & the Johnsons. It will be an ethereal show. Goto his website and watch/listen to the title track of his new album 'Adventures in your own backyard' - it sounds like Jeff Buckley singing a Radiohead version of a Burl Ives song - really out there!

The decision to see Liza Minnelli was largely based on the TV show Arrested Development - where her role was brilliant - and somewhat that she is a legend. I don't own any of her music and her style is not really my sort of thing - however, I still think that even if she doesn't have the voice she wants had, it will be a spectacular show.

I've not kept pace with Seal for most of his career though his first album was mind-blowing to me in 1990. However, he has covered several of my favourite soul classics on his last couple of albums and so I'm very excited to have front row tickets for this one.
