Canaan Canaan

Went to a very nice little free concert tonight at the Strictly Organic Coffee Company. The performer, Canaan Canaan, has only been in Bend for a few months, fresh from Japan. Though I couldn't understand most of the words it didn't make any difference. The beat and guitar still got your toe tapping. All her music is original and she gave a little introduction to each song which helped set the scene.

The concerts here are probably what you would classify as "intimate". Everybody is always friendly and the performers thank you personally for coming to watch them.

Canaan Canaan plays here again on Saturday, August 18th from 11 am - 1 pm.

Definitely worth seeing. Always good to expose yourself to other cultures.

I like these kinds of events. I remember ages ago when I was in Japan that some of the bars we went to had American performers and sometimes the local Japanese would stand and try to sing an American song with the Japanese accent. It was often trying since they cannot pronounce the Letter "L" and it comes out more like an "R" so a song with love in it sounded more like ruve. Anyway, they have come a long way and can now sing with the best of them. Glad you got to go.

Nice post! You're right, like a good pearl, it's great to be "cultured!" ;)))

And HEY! You're behind!

Well, ok, a LITTLE behind!

I won't tell if you don't!
