Thursday nights in Ottawa’s Wellington West neighbourhood are getting a little more exciting if you’re into chocolate and free music shows. A Thing For Chocolate cafe on Wellington Street West will host a live, house concert-style music night every Thursday through May 14 with local and out-of-town solo acoustic artists. The Sounds Simple series runs through the next 17 weeks and will mix together both experienced and emerging artists. Although there are no tickets or cover charge, they are still “pass the hat” performances. Thursday March 12th features Amanda Cottreau.
This evocative multi-genre songwriter showcase features Toronto's Bryce Jardine, Gatineau's Amanda Cottreau and, Ottawa's own Suzy Pankhurst. www.brycejardine.com www.amandacottreau.com https://soundcloud.com/suzy-Pankhurst Cozy up with a friend, grab a micro-brewed pint and sink your teeth into a gourmet pressed sandwich, while you take in the motivational melodies of these burgeoning Canadian songwriters.

"Amanda is a woman with a conscious, intuitive, and consistent will to connect people. Her music expresses a desire to love and be loved, and the nuances of what it means to have those desires in a complex world. Her music is lilting, introspective, comforting, precious, reflective, breakable and sometimes broken. It is the sort of music that asks to be listened to and compels its hearers to make themselves vulnerable. Her brand of folk, and the emotional intellect of her song-writing calls out to hold you, but she is, for the moments she is on stage, asking also to be held by the audience."
