AUSCAN Song Summit Report

It was a chilly Autumn evening that had people searching for some warmth, which was found at the AUSCAN Song Summit at Darling Harbour on Sunday evening.  There were 5 CAC members  and about 100 other people that showed up and didn't really know what to expect during the evening.  Well, we were welcomed with open arms to the AUSCAN Song Summit Circle reception and performance like we were family.  We enjoyed lovely drinks and entrees while overlooking the always impressive Darling Harbour view.  

The AUSCAN Song Summit Circle was then introduced, which showcased East Coast Canadian award winning artists Matt Anderson, David Myles and Tim Chaisson, alongside two of Australia's favourites Henry Wagons and Ray Beadle.  Everyone was taken through a journey of the songs written by these artists, the history of them and then they sung them for us.  Each and every artist was truly amazing, but Matt Anderson took the house down with his powerful and emotional voice that had people in tears and giving him standing ovations.  It was also so special to see them all perform together - wow, wow, wow!  Our souls and hearts were warmed by the incredible talent! After the performance, we had a opportunity to meet the artists, who were all very welcoming and friendly.  It felt like you were sitting in a living room with these guys during a jam session.   

I'm keeping an eye out for Song Summit 2013 - you can guarantee you will see me there!

Thank you so much CAC for organising such an amazing event!!!
