"The Naturally 7 concert and workshop have been in the works for over a year, after a video of a live performance of theirs was emailed to me by a committee member. At that time, N7 was a huge hit in Europe, but had just started to gain recognition in North America. Now, after a tour of the US and Canada, and performances in Vancouver at the Winter Olympics, they are in the midst a world tour with Michael Buble. What a thrill it will be to have them here on Grand Bahama! "
