    Steve Strongman just wants to keep growing. No, the 43-year-old award-winning blues guitarist isn’t getting any taller.

    Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra brings Alison Mackay’s recent multimedia production Visions and Voyages, to London. The nine-time Juno winning orchestra performs Tuesday at Aeolian Hall.

Calling the music of the new world during the years 1663-1763 “the soundtrack of colonization,” Mckay juxtaposes images of First Nations trappers and canoe builders, showing what would have been happening in the land that, 100 years later, would be known as Canada.
