I had the pleasure of meeting him through his lovely girlfriend Kelly and I've been lucky enough to share meals with both of them (and their heart throb of a pup, Chester.) All of that irrelevant because what I am eventually going to get at is that Jamie is a ridiculously talented photographer in addition to being a talented musician. Long story short, Jamie was asked to partake in Portraits of Bluesfest 4 this year and this is his submission from Snoop
Portraits of Bluesfest 4 is a fundraiser that features 18 of Ottawa's most talented visual artists. They are asked to create original images of Bluesfest that will later be auctioned off at a silent auction with ALL proceeds going to Blues in the Schools, a charity that brings professional musicians to public school in Ottawa to help kids learn and get inspired. Over the past three years they have raised more then $20,000 for this program.
Portraits of Bluesfest Four will be held at Patrick Gordon Framming, 160 Elm St.
7-9, all bidding lots will be closed at 9:00pm
Payment: cash or cheque only
Yummy sponsors: McAuslan Brewery (they brew St. Ambroise + Griffon) and Tacolot
