laviolette-regLocal musical hero Richard Laviolette returns to Owen Sound for a concert at the River Café, August 15th at 7:30pm -- suggested donation $10. Laviolette was raised on music and never kicked the habit. As the child of a prominent Grey-Bruce musical duo Darrell and Marie Laviolette, his childhood was steeped in country music played at family gatherings and local jamborees. Laviolette's own musical career sprouted out of the Guelph music scene and is marked by near constant collaboration and experimentation, spanning genres from folk, to country, and rock and roll.

Several years ago, I was teaching at a music camp in New Jersey. I had a group of about 16 songwriters as students. On the first night they invited me down to a songwriters' circle at one of the cabins. I went, stayed for one round through the circle, and said my "good nights". I then went and played for two hours with the contra dance band.

The next day, they asked what I thought about the circle. My inner Canadian was still asleep and instead of being polite, I said what was on my mind.
