Curtis Driedger presents 'My Puny Life in Music', a Concert to Benefit the Bank Theatre

"In 1974 I moved to Peterborough, ostensibly to attend Trent University but mainly to really get immersed in a freeform musical lifestyle, with all that it entailed. A band did result from this sojourn, called "Back Porch Delivery", which was bluegrass and jugband and ragtime. An album was recorded (not released until 2001).
I remained in Peterborough until the spring of '76, when I joined a newly formed touring showband, based out of Guelph, that went by the name "Bandit". Playing primarily six nighters all across Ontario as well as Quebec and the Maritimes, I lasted two and a half years. Thoroughly burned out, and now with a Toronto address, I became a landscape labourer, which suited me very well.

We need to fast forward here. After moving into town in '98, I started giving violin lessons, then branching out to other instruments, this all via word of mouth. In 2003 I formed the Mandolin Society of Peterborough, which is (at present) an eighteen piece orchestra. Also around this time I began to develop a repertoire suitable for performing in retirement homes, of which there are quite a number in our area. This has proven rewarding on a number of levels, not the least of which is the opportunity to explore more old music. In 2011, at someone's suggestion, I started a choir, which has become the Peterborough Zippity Doo Dah Community Soul Chorus, which finished this past season at eighty members. To me, this is an absolutely astounding development.
I continue to garden professionally as well, and between that and "my puny life in music" I can't imagine a better existence."
