I spent an enjoyable couple of hours with friend John Simmons at the Mex Pub on Tuesday during its weekly open mic night. Host Judy Wing sounded great to open, ...backed by husband Bruce Wing and wonderfully complementary violinist Blaine Dunaway. Among the succession of local singer-songwriters who followed, I was particularly struck by Greg Krause, whose unconventional cadence brought a whole new look to such a well-known tune as Paul McCartney's I Will. Krause sidles up to a song sideways, never playing it straight on. I liked it and his voice, especially in his upper register. The Comox Valley is a font of creativity.
