Flash Mob at Market Square

How appropriate.  In the same week that we’re running our Nuit Blanche poll, a poll that’s already registered a record number of votes and set a new benchmark for most visitors on a single day, our friends over at the Kingston Arts Council posted an amazing video of a flash mob taking over Market Square.  The video features the usual suspects from The Gertrudes, who randomly come together in the midst of the Farmers Market to perform their infectious tune Catfish John.  I must admit that I was initially skeptical as to whether or not this was a legit flash mob, however as the scene unfolds, one voice swells to a larger than life sing-a-long that includes umpteen folks from the Open Voices Choir.  What a treat!  Hit the play button on the video below and enjoy.

  • I'm the guy in the black T-shirt and cap with the red stroller near the start. It was excellent – well done, everyone! :-)

  • Fantastic work. Kingston is the place to be! You all sound so beautiful. Wish I would have been at the market on this day :)
