Rank #2: Montreal Jazz Festival 2019 – Video Blogging and full report

Podcast cover
Read more

The great Canadian city has been a must stop for The Guitar Channel for a couple of years now for the Montreal Jazz Festival. The program is always great and full of great musicians. In the video blogging episode below you will have extracts from concerts, live shots from the outside concerts, micro-interviews and more.

Montreal 2019 - Video Blogging the Jazz fest

Concerts of 2019

Here are the concerts I went to during this edition:

  • George Benson: despite being completely jet lagged,  I enjoyed a lot this concert, especially the second part which was more up beat.
  • Jacob Collier: great concert by the super talented multi-instrumentist youtuber who is now with a full band.
  • Rodrigo y Gabriela: excellent show by the duo. The crowd loved it, so did I. I hope to interview them in the future.
  • Peter Frampton: probably the best concert and biggest surprise as I did not expect such a level of energy.
  • Juan Carmona: deep and powerful Flamenco concert with some great solo pieces as well as music with the band.

The great press room is always a superb work environment for the media:

Rank #12: Craig Garber interview and open discussion – “Everyone Loves Guitar” podcast

Podcast cover
Read more

While browsing my social networks I came across a guitar podcast named Everyone Loves Guitar (www.everyonelovesguitar.com). I listened to a few episodes and much appreciated the quality of the interviews conducted by its creator Craig Garber. This podcast was added to the directory of guitar podcasts that I maintain and I sent an email to Craig to mention this to him.

We agreed to make a first Skype call to share our views on podcasting. Then we decided that it would probably be interesting to do some kind of cross-interviewing to talk about our respective projects.

That's the result in video and audio in the podcast.

Conclusion

I can only warmly recommend listening to the Everyone Loves Guitar podcast. The interviews are very well conducted. Each show is usually quite long, sometimes over an hour or two but I guarantee each and every minutes are totally worth it. Give it a try!

Until the next interview, keep on playing the guitar!
