Boris Buhot holding cd fundraiser on familiar turf
Grungy Rock songwriter and Durham Region resident Boris Buhot is no stranger to music fans in east TO as he grew up in the area and has frequently appeared at clubs there, most recently on a couple of occasions at Hirut Restaurant hosting his new In The Round songwriters series about which we’ve written a couple of times recently.
We’ve also written several times about his own musical talents, even going so far last summer as to suggest that he should get himself a band to help bring his moody, deep ballads and churning Rock songs to larger life at shows.
On his debut album, United Truce, (from which you can hear a track on our website’s Featured Tracks page on the Music tab) Boris played most of the parts himself in the studio and does a bang-up job too. But it’s pretty hard for him to match that when doing a solo show.
Now he’s getting ready to record a new album that will include new works and to help finance the project he’s appearing tonight at Hirut, 2050 Danforth Ave. a bit west of Woodbine, to play some of the new songs.
He’ll also be joined by special guest Tony Newman, whom I heard and was impressed by as I took part in one of the ITR shows there on January 1.
Doors open at 8 (come for dinner –the Ethiopian culinary delights cooked up by owner Hirut are universally acclaimed as awesome!) and the show begins around 9:30, with cover a pay-what-you-can arrangement.
