Musical excuses abound for those winter trips to the Caribbean

The Canadian Press: "If cold weather and snow-covered streets are not enough to get you to the Caribbean, tell yourself it's a cultural opportunity and go for one of the region's winter music festivals.
The St. Bart's Music Festival - http://www.stbartsmusicfestival.org/ - is set for Jan. 11-23 with performances ranging from classical to jazz. It's advertised as relaxed and informal, no reservations, just enjoy the beaches during the day and then pay at the door of that night's venue in churches and community halls. This website, however, is not as accommodating; to get in, you must click on the festival title, and then a new, smaller web browser window opens. However, it does have a video featuring musical and dance performances with some of the island's tropical scenery."
