I’m breaking my own rule here (no pop), but it’s my rule. My super favourite songwriter, Christine Fellows, will be having her CD release at the Music Gallery on March 26. If you saw her show with Shary Boyle at the closing of the Images Festival last year, you’ll be as excited as I am. http://musicgallery.org/node/405
