Gee, I hope I'm doing this right, every message board is different. Anyway, I dont' know if any of you youngins have ever heard of Holly Arsenault. She is an extremely talented jazz pianist, based in Montreal but orginally from Sydney Mines. She has recently released her first CD, entitled Hush. It is fabulous, as is she. If you like jazz have a listen. Even if you don't like jazz have a listen, broaden your muscial experience.
She was one of my best friends in junior and senior high. I recently found her hiding out in Montreal. She is a little known Sydney Mines treasure. I think all the oldies, my age would remember her as a talented musician though.
Hey, I went to school with all those guys! Bruce's brother doesn't live that far from me, here in the AV, he is married to the girl next door, literally, (from Sydney Mines that is) and their son is in my daughter's grade 2 class. It's a small, small world.
I know Holly and her brother Robin and sister Lee Ann , Len was her dad. I grew up with Bruce and the MacNeil boys and Ruby. We have a lot of talent on the island and i am very happy to see our own doing so well.
