Fortunately I didn’t need my pocket music guide at last night’s Monkeyhaus. The reason being when people talk about music at the Monkeyhaus they share. They share not only what they brought but in most cases why they brought it, maybe how they came across it in the first place, what it means to them, some historical and personal perspective and most importantly they share their excitement over the opportunity to introduce us to something we may not know and perhaps will come to enjoy and eventually share with others.
There’s more to learn about music through this sharing and listening than you could ever learn from a pocket book. Although I have to admit, they got this part right – For most of us who have ‘ ears to hear ‘, listening to music is a source of delight.
