This performance celebrates the music of seven Canadian artists and was inspired by aboriginal and afro roots among us. It's interesting that seven is also mystically known as the number of completion, or in other words, of perfect harmony. The Spanish guitar harmonizes beautifully with wistful thoughts and you might want to bring someone whose hand you can hold. Vintage recorded interviews and Godbout's own musings are interspersed throughout and make you feel like you're listening to your favourite Music 101 prof—he's a man of many hats. —Rebecca Medel

    An interesting, thought provoking soulful hour in a very warm
    venue! Musically, Colin Godbout is a bit of a musical genius.
    This time, he takes the audience with him, at least most of the
    way, as his fingers scamper effortlessly, ballads of complexity.
    He is really very much the artist, doing his best to give the
    audience a private viewing i nto his world where music leaves
    his fingers ‘bleeding’ (just like Coltrane”s lips). Though not fully
    for the masses, for the moments of brilliance, gentle humility
    and warm humour, this is a fine way spend your Fringe dollars
    On this well studied, luxurious musician.


    In 20+ years of attending the Fringe, I have seen some awful performances. Never, until tonight, have I walked out of one. Pretentious, ostentatious, narcissistic are just a few of the words that come to mind. And all without the musical talent to back it up. Our group was not the only one that left.
