Musical Melting Pot

Could this have been the preview of a future worldwide tour?

The possibilities are intriguing.

If nothing else, this potential chart-busting act does carry some impressive credentials.

One performer is a Paris-born American of Chinese descent who just happens to be a virtuoso cellist and winner of multiple Grammy Awards. The other is a Toronto-born, piano-playing political heavyweight out of Calgary who has been shaking things up in Ottawa at the National Arts Centre gala.

Recalling trails blazed by great musical duos such as Sam & Dave, Simon & Garfunkel, Sonny & Cher, Brooks & Dunn, Salt n' Pepa and others, musically-minded TSB fans will have the entire Thanksgiving weekend to grapple with this question:

Is the planet ready for "Yo Yo Steve"?

Special thanks to Danielle Leger, the networking rockstar from the Greater Moncton Chamber of Commerce for passing this link along. Friends, business partners and readers like D.L. are just one of the many reasons TSB is wrapping up the week with a Stephen Harper-Yo Yo Ma inspired, spirit of gratitude.

Hope you find plenty to be grateful for this holiday weekend.

Regular posting resumes on Tuesday.

Good on ya Harper.

This video along with the infamous "blue sweaters" is an example on how to use social media.

"Blue Sweaters" were not real, they were a front to get people to like him.

"Beatles Song" the real Harper. A music/Beatles fan doing something he loves. No fakery.

You have to be real in social media. Sure some people may not like you or what you do, but isn't that real?
