Jeremy Gallant goes to the National Music Festival

by Heather Denning

When most children have a musical ability proud parents usher them to music lessons, which may last a few years until the complications of teenage call too loudly to be ignored, and the guitar strings go slack, the reeds unwet, the bow is unwaxed and suddenly music is something “I used to do as a kid.” Not so Jeremy Gallant.
