Since October, Guelph has yet another venue to satisfy the appetite for sharing music. The Two Rivers Song Gathering meets twice a month at the Army, Navy & Air Force (ANAF) Club 344, hosted by Jack Cooper and Debby Moon.
I visited for the first time this month and enjoyed the songs everyone brought – lots of originals seasoned with a few folk songs people could join in on. However, it took some dedicated powers of concentration to tune out the TV just behind me that was broadcasting a soccer game – too bad considering how great the music was. I imagine that once the song gathering becomes a longer running tradition that there might be less competition for the soundspace.
