JUNO Music to Hamilton’s Ears

There is music everywhere in Hamilton this weekend – in bars and restaurants, malls, up and down James St. North – even in the library, where it was anything but quiet Friday night. And this BEFORE the gala dinner tonight and the big live awards show from First Ontario Centre Sunday. if you haven’t ventured out yet, here’s a look at what you’ve missed. – Barry Gray

One Comment on “JUNO Music to Hamilton’s Ears

  1. So real. So awe inspiring. The facial expressions caught at the fraction of a second. My heart feels the realism. Brought joy, exitement, proud feeling, sorrow and sadness…at the same time what a true photographer is! Well done. Moves my heart to see and feel real life as if I were there. Sincerely,Carla from Hamilton.
