Carlo Spinazzola was busy on the weekend, wowing a massive crowd on Saturday afternoon at the Brunswick Square Shopping Centre during Fan Fest. Carlo played a few laid back numbers, tastefully accompanying himself on slide guitar during a mini Songwriters Circle with fellow Cape Bretoner Bruce Guthro and Kris Taylor from PEI. Spinazzola also attracted a large crowd to the mainstage showcase room closing the Post Awards party opposite The Fables in the Traditonal Room across the hallway. Howie Centre’s Keith Mullins added just the right touch on percussion to get everybody up dancing at the end of a long weekend. Next weekend Carlo’s artwork will be exhibited at UCCB Art Gallery. Watch for that story in the next issue.
