Imagine having a secret for most of your life you have wanted to tell someone for so long, but are afraid of what might happen if you share it. This was me. Until today.

Hannah McPhillimy performs at the Canterbury House on Thursday, October 4.

On Thursday, October 4 I had the opportunity to attend a concert at Canterbury House as part of the Canterbury House Concert Series.

There was passion and energy with the band and the audience, and that is what made this a great performance.
