Happy Mother’s Day!

 

 

It is the time for people to thank mothers and mother figures who took the time care for them and help them through life’s challenges.

Early celebrations of Mother’s Day originated from Canada’s neighboring country, the United States. Carnations are a popular Mother’s Day symbol in both Canada and the United States. Some people may choose to wear a carnation as a brooch on Mother’s Day. However, other flowers are also given to mothers or mother figures to symbolize one’s love and appreciation for them.

Many people send cards or gifts to their mother or mother figure or make a special effort to visit her.

Common Mother’s Day gifts are flowers, chocolate, candy, clothing, jewelry and treats, such as a beauty treatment or trip to a spa. Some families organize an outing for all of their members or hold a special meal at home or in a restaurant. In the days and weeks before Mother’s Day, many schools help their pupils to prepare a handmade card or small gift for their mothers.

The origins of Mother’s Day are attributed to different people. Many believe that two women, Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis were important in establishing the tradition of Mother’s Day in the United States. Other sources say that Juliet Calhoun Blakely initiated Mother’s Day in Albion, Michigan, in the late 1800s. Her sons paid tribute to her each year and urged others to honor their mothers.

Mark Crissinger Solo in Gananoque

 

 

Mark Crissinger is a 2017 Maple Blues Award nominee from Vancouver Island. He has been performing in pubs, clubs, festivals, and fairs since 1987. His solo show features accomplished guitar playing and soulful vocals. The harmonica and a resonator guitar can make an appearance as well. During a song, he will often loop (record) what he is playing and solo over it. This sounds like two guitars playing at the same time and fills out the sound of the show.

Blending traditional themes, clever lyrics and modern arrangements, Mark performs his original blues and roots music, capturing his singer-songwriter soul and the blues in his heart. He combines many different styles allowing for plenty of sonic variety. It’s a fun, upbeat, and dynamic night of music that has gained him many years of popularity on the solo tour circuit

His latest “new blues” album is receiving great reviews and can be heard on blues radio shows around the world.
