Word of mouth brought me to the second ever open stage at the Café Creperie – and summer heat drove the event out onto the cobbled sidewalk just outside the café doors. This meant I could hear strains of music blocks away, leading me to the relaxed group of acoustic musicians on Mill Street, downtown Elora. I had the pleasure of hearing original songs, covers that ranged from 2011 back to 1915, and – definitely a first for me – a Britney Spears tune done on the banjo!

Chef Jacques Dion provides delicious treats and a warm welcome while host Brayden Benham keeps the musical flow going and makes every player feel appreciated.  A lovely addition to summer in Elora!
