Not many people can say they taught Jeff Healey how to play chords on a guitar. Although there is one person who can claim that title. His name is Michael Baker; he's a blind singer/guitar player who lives in Ottawa. Key Records spoke with Mike and learned how he met Jeff Healey at a school for the blind where they spent one year together. Years later Healey even mentioned during a television interview how he was inspired by the blind singer/guitarist from Ottawa. Key Records later met up with Michael in the beautiful village of Wakefield. Upon request Michael agreed to give us a private performance along the waterfront.
