I had gone to watch The Duhks at the West End Cultural Centre in March. I must admit that before that day I had never heard their music. The only reason I was there was because of their lead singer, Jessee Havey.
Jesse and I were both performing at the Peace Service in Temple Shalom last fall. Jesse deserved to be there. I was just lucky. The moment she opened her mouth to sing, I knew that she was a star. It was one of those pinnacle moments in my life. Like the time I was standing in front of Queen Elizabeth, the time I held the Winter Olympic torch and the time radio celebrity Ace Burpee offered to buy all my paintings. Sure enough, I later found out that The Dukhs were a Juno Award winning band who was also nominated for a Grammy in 2007.
Their concert was a sell out and that came as no surprise. The Duhks are back Winnipeg, and let's hope that they are here to stay!
