The launch party of Hamilton Musician, 2013 edition, celebrated the energy and community of the Hamilton music scene. The Baltimore House venue on King William Street set the tone perfectly. Several local performers took the stage, including students from Mohawk College Applied Music Program, Duane Rutter, Sarah Beatty with Gord Simpson, and the Brenda Brown Jazz Trio.

Lori Yates took the stage for the featured set. She included several of her well-known musical accomplices including Patricia-Lynn “Buckshot” Bebee, Chris Altmann on pedal steel, Duane Rutter, and Mary Simon.
