Last weekend Paul and I drove to Truro (Bible Hill), Nova Scotia to enjoy some blues music at the Dutch Mason Blues Festival. We stayed at Baker's Chest Bed & Breakfast (Karn Room), which we would highly recommend to anyone looking for a lovely place to stay. We enjoyed two great local restaurants in Truro; Murphy's Fish & Chips, where the food was equal to that of Chess's Fish & Chips in St. John's, Newfoundland, and the newly opened Sahla Thai Restaurant. Although the weather during the weekend was very hot and, at times wet, we did enjoy some great music. As always Charlie A'Court was an outstanding performer and this year's new find for me was Lukas Nelson (Willie Nelson's son). I really liked his song, Frame of Mind, which I now have on my ITouch. There were also performances by James Cotton and John Oates.

It was a fun weekend and we hope the Dutch Mason Blues Festival will continue next year. If so, we will be there...
