'Sometimes When We Touch'

Exciting to see the Music Awards coming back to PEI and I'm thinking April will be much better temperatures than February to be out buzzing around the City... in fact I tried to buy tickets today on their web site as there was talk at the "market" yesterday that they were selling fast.... but they don't even have a on-line sales site set up yet which seems a bit odd... but what's a little more odd to me is the Dan Hill headliner (see photo) as I'm wondering now that he's put on a few years and sporting my hairdo, if he's still going to drown us with "too much love" or has age caught up to him... Although I'm in full suspense to find if he’s “love bitter” why wouldn't they have a young Atlantic artist as a headliner???... Here's what a critic had to say about Hill...

Dan Hill: 'Sometimes When We Touch'

If the full beard and mustache don't give it away, then you're already in trouble. This commitment-phobe wants to love you and does, but it's just too much. There's too much love. I'm drowning. Translation: He or she is just not that into you.

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you till I die
Till we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides

Hill, who wrote the song, may be in need of a serious therapist and has booked you for the job. Whose idea of a romantic date is sitting around talking about how they should, but can't be a couple while crying? Answer: the lonely person without a date on Valentine's.

Pity, party table for one, please.

ECMAs moving to April

The East Coast Music Association will hold its 2011 award ceremony in April, about three weeks later than was previously announced.

The five-day celebration of Atlantic region music will run April 13-17 in Charlottetown, instead of March 24-27. Organizers say they hope later spring weather will make travel easier.

The Confederation Centre of the Arts will be the main venue, which the association hopes will make for a more comfortable and intimate event than the ones held recently in more stadium-like buildings.

Dan Hill was announced Friday as a special guest performer.

Stages will be set up around Charlottetown with various themes: rock, rising star, roots, international export, discovery, and the ever-popular songwriters circle.

Artists billed to perform include Jimmy Rankin, Richard Wood, Lennie Gallant, Alex Madsen of the Divorcees, Mark Bragg and the Butchers, Erin Costello and Lennie Gallant.
