Border intrigue for bluegrass musicians : Bluegrass Today

Border intrigue for bluegrass musicians : Bluegrass Today | music | Scoop.it
The main reason for this is that I have no firsthand knowledge of what those musicians go through at the U.S border, although, based on a handful of horror stories, I'd say that it ain't always pretty.
Pascale Leborgne's insight:

assez étonnant (!)  de lire combien les  frontières nord-américaines semblent infranchissables, vu du sol américain (nord américain...) ; et combien les Européens peuvent arriver sans problème aucun sur ce même sol ! bon, surtout s'ils ne viennent pas gagner de l'argent, fussent-ils musiciens ! On ne voit décidément pas le monde du même côté de la lorgnette... Y a -t-il même un monde au-delà du Nord de l'Amérique  et de l'Europe , qui ne soit pas seulement une terre de "tourisme" : au secours !!! j

Luminothérapie at Place des Festivals, Montréal

Luminothérapie at Place des Festivals, Montréal | music | Scoop.it

Every day until February 2, starting at nightfall, the luminous installation Entre les rangs turns Place des Festivals into a wonderland, while Trouve Bob, a monumental series of seven animations, transforms the Quartier’s building façades into a city-sized animated game.

Fluttering atop 28,500 flexible stems that bend in the winter wind, white reflectors scatter light from the projectors in Place des Festivals. Right in the heart of the city, these stylised stalks of wheat dance and shimmer to a musical score by Patrick Watson, inviting passers-by to enjoy a dreamy stroll among them.
