Robert Randolph is great, but Aubrey Ghent is still my favourite.

Don't know much about it but saw the Sacred Steel Band perform with the Nova Scotia Mass Choir in Halifax and it was awesome. Any idea what the Blues scene is like in Toronto?

BodyandSoul, pretty well all music scenes are thriving in Toronto right now. There are so many good players performing for free it's absurd.

If you can, I would highly recommend checking out Donné Roberts. He plays Malagasy Soul, but man-o-man he can play some real dark blues as well. His Junior Kimbrough covers are chilling.

He often pairs up with a great piano player and singer named Julian Fauth.
