Nothing less than a tragedy.

I just loved the place. Meals were good and to be so close to everything was just awesome. Got to speak to Stephen Fearing during his intermission for almost 20 min. Last show I saw there was Heather Nova.

One can only hope things can be brought back.

Sigh!


I wish I would have seen that Heather Nova concert in a small venue such as the Hugh's Room!

I was very lucky to have seen Lhasa de Sela at Hugh's Room - remains one of the best performances I have seen.

If they reopen, I will make sure to watch their listing more carefully this time.

Hope they can resurrect Hugh's Room, that type of intimate musical experience is hard to replace. Acoustic blues legend John Hammond did a great show each year.

Hugh's is/was one of the only venues in Toronto for folk music, and as it stands, many folk artists (especially US) never come anywhere near T.O. given the lack of interest here. That will only be worse now.

It's not as if Hugh's can be replaced by some place like the Horseshoe. Seats vs. standing. Dinners vs. chips. Listening vs. talking. Civilization vs. bar fights... :lol:
