Peterboroughs underground music scene has been alive and well for over a century. The Pigs Ear has been around for just as long, providing a venue for musicians, poets, intellectuals and drunks. If James Joyce hung out in Peterborough it would have been at the Piggy. 


I was asked to document the last Peterborough Musicians Benevolent society on their final gig  before the sale of this historic establishment rendered it a memory in the history books of music, Peterborough, and indeed Canada. I found my favourite vintage lens and spent one of the most wonderful afternoons documenting all the people who knew and appreciated the haunts that lie within her walls, tattered tables, and blood stained floors.
