Inaugural Music Night on Parliament Hill an excellent display of Canadian talent

Minister of Canadian Heritage James Moore hosted an intimate showcase of Canadian music at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa on December 12th, featuring performances by the Jim Cuddy Band and Marie-Eve Janvier & Jean-François Breau.

The event was the first ever Music Night on Parliament Hill, following in the tradition of Moore's Movie Nights, a series "unabashed acts of Canadian-cultural boosterism" that have "become marquee, must-attend occasions in Ottawa," as described by the Toronto Star's Susan Delacourt.

The event, organized by Music Canada and Quebecor, was well attended by a non-partisan crowd including Members of Parliament from various parties, Ambassador David Jacobson and his wife, as well as members of the media and representatives from Canada's recording industry.

Last minute guests were Prime Minister Harper and his wife Laureen Harper.
