Arkell’s Max Kerman misses live events

Today on CBC The Current, host Matt Galloway talks to Max Kerman, lead singer of the Canadian band Arkells, about why he’s been offering music lessons, and the deep impact of COVID on live events.

“Your concerts are spectacles,” say host Galloway, “you haven’t played a while – what do you miss?” (3:50 into the clip)

“I don’t want to think about it, Matt, I get emotional.” says Kerman, “the rituals on the day are what I miss the most.”
