Known as "The Carnegie Hall of Canada" and, affectionately, as "The Grand Old Dame of Shuter Street", Toronto's Massey Hall is one of the most sought-after destinations for musicians in Canada and beyond. As the 127-year-old venue prepares to re-open following a three-year closure for renovations, author David McPherson discusses the history of the hall, from the big names, to the classic tunes and tales of concerts in this cathedral of Canadian music, in his new book Massey Hall: An Enduring Legacy.
