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.

Carolyn Fe at Gananoque’s Royal Theatre

 

 

The last time Carolyn Fe Blues Collective, played the newly renovated historic The Royal Theatre, Thousand Islands was in an acoustic trio format. This time around get the FULL BAND experience! Songs from their award winning 3 albums, PLUS a sneak peak…errr, a sneak listen to a few more songs from their upcoming album! From the crowd’s reactions the last time, you best get your tickets early because this time around, they’ll sell out fast!

Some history about the theatre: Built in 1930 by the Delaney family as a Vaudeville House, this all poured-concrete structure was one of the first “fire-proof” buildings ever conceived in North America. The Great Depression slowed the family’s progress with their new theatre venture, however, and it was not until 1937 that the doors were opened to patrons.

The venue hosted live acts and popular movies until 1960, when it was converted to a bowling alley. Proprietor and Founding Artistic Director Kevin John Saylor purchased the imposing old building in 2013. The spirit of community he discovered in Gananoque was immediately inviting, and the fact that the town was already a theatre destination (home of the Thousand Islands Playhouse) and very famous as the “Gateway to the Thousand Islands”, made relocating an easy decision.

Elvis & Buddy Holly Tribute

 

 

Gary Wesley has performed throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, Chile, and South America. He has performed with Las Vegas Productions such as Legends in Concert, American Super Stars, Legends Alive and many others. 2016 is Garry’s 28th year performing at Alfred’s on Beale Street. He has performed with the Legendary Jordanaires, The Blackwood Brothers Quartet, The Sweet Inspirations, Millie Kirkham, DJ Fontana and Joe Esposito. Gary not only bears a striking resemblance to Elvis but he has perfected those famous gyrating moves and has an impeccable voice.

Jeff Scott entered the Tribute industry literally overnight. It began with a phone call on a cold February afternoon. By the end of the conversation, Jeff was heading to Las Vegas to join the successful Kokomo Beach Band, (a Beach Boys tribute band), where his love for 60’s pop would fit like a glove. Touring the US and Canada, the highlight of the trip would be a series of shows on the Vegas Strip, including The Sands, Aladdin, and Circus Circus.
