John McCallum

If you look carefully just left of center in the photo above you'll see one of my favorite Causeway Artists, singer/songwriter John McCallum. I've enjoyed John's music for years now both on the Inner Harbor Causeway and on Fisherman's Wharf where this photo was taken. As well as tuneful, his songs are thoughtful and often wryly humorous. If you get a chance to hear him, sit down and listen closely. You won't be disappointed. Below is a clip of John's version of Folsom Prison Blues. The audio doesn't do justice to John's sound, which is much better in person, but the video may give you some idea of what Fisherman's Wharf looks like from a busker's perspective.

Just discovered your blog while blog hopping from somewhere else. I love your photo today, reminds me so much of our trip to Victoria a couple of years ago. The harbour was one of our favourite places to visit. I loved the float homes.

Mr. McCallum is great. I too have enjoyed his music along the Causeway.

Fishermans Wharf is a Victoria gem. Did u read the TC article a few days ago? Sounds like the GVHA -- the same ones who gave Dean grief -- are putting it to the float home owners as well.

Thanks Mike for bringing that article to my attention. Anybody else who wants to read it can find it HERE.

I tried to read that article but apparently one must subscribe to the TC's website in order to access anything beyond the headlines. :(
