Building Bridges

Exploring the living history of a scene is the basis of Grohl’s series. What Buhot envisions is similar to the Foo man’s view. Both are sharing their own deep love for music, its players, its artifacts and its architecture. Where music is created, played is important and this pride in place and this desire to tell all who will listen drives them both.

“In The Round” TO season finale features passionate songwriters

For the past 18 months east-Toronto born and Oshawa-based Grunge-Pop songwriter Boris Buhot has been putting on an interesting series of monthly “In The Round” artist showcases that rotate between clubs in the two jurisdictions. Taking place alternately at Hirut Café in east TO and Oshawa’s Simcoe Blues and Jazz club, the three or four participants, usually also including the host, do successive songs and in some instances also join...

Campfire song circle and catching a wave augur nice weather

The weather’s still a bit chilly to think about going to the beach, let alone catching a wave on a surfboard, but a couple of shows in east TO tonight will give what feels like a holiday weekend (you can bet a lot of people called in sick after yesterday’s celebrations) a definite proto-summer feel. If you have fond memories of campfire-style song circles with earnest songwriters sharing their tunes then the 9-12 “In The Round” show...

Circle with three corners will provide superb strumming tonight

Three-fourths of the superstar six-string group Guitar Boys of Alderon will be on display tonight “in the round” in Durham as the new inter-regional songwriters showcase series hosted by Boris Buhot returns to Simcoe Blues & Jazz in Oshawa. I’ve written many times about the fingerstyle magic that songwriters Brian Gladstone and Tony Quarringtonweave when they perform as a duo, and on several occasions have also extolled the...

Boris will have friends with him tonight but should start a band

I’m not exactly sure why Grunge-Pop/Rock songwriter Boris Buhot doesn’t have a permanent band in place to help get his heavy yet catchy tunes out to audiences more often. It’s certainly not because his songs don’t justify it and I think with a group behind him his profile would be much higher. There’s no denying that the energy and fullness of the sound from his debut United Truce album —for example on the track “All I Am”, which you...
