Skydiggers in Halifax
One of my all-time favourite bands is the Skydiggers. Since they hit the scene in the late eighties when I was in high school, their music has been with me wherever I’ve gone. Driving across this crazy wide country — twice! — without the Skydiggers would have been like sushi without the chopsticks. Luckily for me, while I was in high school and then college seeing them play live didn’t require multi-province road trips or a trip to the travel agent. It usually only meant driving or taking the subway down to Queen Street West in Toronto, home of the Horseshoe Tavern. Once I left southern Ontario though, it was difficult, if not impossible, to ever see the Skydiggers live.
