Today I have the privilege of volunteering at one of Ottawa`s biggest music festivals. This festival has become a very important tradition in my family over the years. We started going back years ago when our children were very little. The first year we went was when Ray Charles played. My kids are now in the 20s and still value this tradition. I don’t know too many young people in their early 20s that can say they have seen Ray Charles play live. There have been so many great legendary artists come thru this city due to this event, and it is an honor to now be able to give back and will do so for many years to come. Thanks, Ottawa Bluesfest.
