Sarah McDOUGALL in Concert

 

10

On Friday, February 10th, 2017, at 8pm SARAH MacDOUGALL will perform in concert at Full Circle Theatre (26 Craig St., Perth). Perth plays host once again to another fabulous international artist! Tickets will be available at Shadowfax (67 Foster St.) or call to charge at 613-267-6817, or online at www.shadowfax.on.ca.

SARAH MacDOUGALL is a Swedish Canadian singer/songwriter living in Whitehorse, Yukon. Described by the magazine Rootstime in Belgium as “One of the greatest talents of our era,” and listed as the “second best gig” by the major UK newspaper The Independent, becoming the #1 most played artist on Canadian Galaxie Folk/Roots radio, Western Canadian Music Award winning artist Sarah MacDougall is getting known for her honest and poetic songs, passionate performances, and unique voice. Born in Sweden, Swedish magazine Nojesguiden declared her “One of Sweden’s best singer/songwriters.”

Since the release of the award-winning The Greatest Ones Alive in 2011, Sarah has been touring Canada and Europe endlessly, taking time to work on songs and record between tours. Last winter, she hunkered down under the Northern Lights in Whitehorse and put the final touches on the sonically rich album which was to become Grand Canyon. The album, co-produced by Sarah and Caleb Stull (Field Study, Dominique Fricot, Language Arts) which was recorded in Toronto and Vancouver, features 8 songs and guest appearances from Erika Angell (Thus: Owls), Rose Cousins, Jesse Zubot (Tanya Tagaq, Dan Mangan), Peggy Lee and Leah Abramson (Abramson singers). Stepping outside of traditional folk and flirting with sounds that could have come from The Postal Service or Kate Bush, Grand Canyon keeps the accoustic guitar but infuses the sound with heavier drums and richly textured strings and synths.

Fire and Ice 2017

12

The Town of Perth will officially launch its 200th anniversary in a way that celebrates the true Canadian spirit: in the middle of winter! Fire & Ice is a two-tiered, day-long celebration that focuses on both the family and night-time celebrations.
To celebrate our 200th anniversary, the Town of Perth will host a free, fun-filled afternoon of family activities at Conlon Farm on Saturday, Feb. 13 from 1-4 p.m.! Check out the activities we have planned for our special day:
Frolf: Frisbee? Golf? Frozen? We’ll be combining two popular sports into one as we set the stage for a four-hole Frolf Course. You’ll try to get frisbees into custom-made “golf” holes. There is a trophy for the champion!
Ice Canvas Art Wall: We’ll be putting up an ice canvas wall in front of the chalet, where you’ll have the chance to take a paintbrush to ice and create some beautiful art!
Outdoor Bonfire: There’s nothing better than an outdoor bonfire in the middle of winter! We’ll have an outdoor bonfire set up outside the chalet where you can warm your fingers and toes between activities.
Tyke Obstacle Course: Just because you’re tiny doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the snow! We’re putting together a mini-obstacle course for the little ones (ages 6 and under), so they can get a taste of winter fun!
Youth Obstacle Course: Do you love a challenge? Have a competitive spirit? Want to tackle Mother Nature’s offerings? We’ll be hosting a youth obstacle course at 2 p.m. where youth (ages 7-13) will have the chance to complete an obstacle course across Conlon Farm in a timed challenge! Meet at the Chalet at 2 p.m.
Ice Hockey Shoot Out: participants will have the chance to shot a puck through the shootout billboard on the outdoor ice pad. If you get three in, you could win a prize!
Facepainting: Take a long-time favourite festival activity for kids, and bring winter in as the themed creation! From Elsa eyes to snowmen on cheeks, our facepainters will be in the chalet from 2-4 p.m. to give your kids the chance to select a winter-themed facepaint creation.
Capture the Bicentennial Flag: You’re going to have a blast competing in a capture the flag event where you’ll work with your team to get your opponent’s flag with a winter twist.

 

Did someone say, Ice Bar?!

 

That’s right. We’ve got an amazing night planned to officially launch the Town of Perth’s 200th Anniversary Celebrations!
Doors open at the Crystal Palace at 7 p.m., where you’ll hear some sweet tunes coming from the Riq Turner Band.

 

Let’s Recap How Your Day’s Going to Go:

 

•    1-4 p.m.: Family activities at Conlon Farm: tobogganing, outdoor skating, custom-made obstacle course, toddlers’ play area, snolf, official snowball fight facility.

Valentine’s Day Celebration

 

6

 

Valentine’s Day is a time when people show feelings of love, affection and friendship. It is celebrated in many ways worldwide and falls on February 14, each year.

Valentine’s Day is an opportunity for people to tell somebody that they love them in a romantic way. It falls on February 14, the name day of two saints, St Valentine of Rome and St Valentine of Terni. In pre-Christian times, the middle of February was a time of pagan fertility festivals in Europe and allegedly the time when birds chose a mate.

Many people give gifts to loved ones on Valentine’s Day. Common gifts are:
•    Flowers, particularly red roses.
•    Chocolates and/or candy.
•    Teddy bears.
•    Toy hearts.
•    Sparkling wine.
•    Cosmetics.
•    Clothing, including lingerie.
•    Jewelry.

Many people also thought that birds chose their mates at this time of year. Around the year 1380, the English poet Chaucer wrote a poem for the first anniversary of the engagement of King Richard II to Anne of Bohemia. This is thought to be the first association between celebrations of romantic love and St Valentine’s Day on February 14. The connection remained important throughout the middle ages.

The most common symbols of Valentine’s Day are heart shapes, which are used to decorate many things, including cards, trees, wrapping paper, cookies and gift boxes. Other symbols associated with February 14 are pairs of birds, cute teddy bears, Cupid and his arrows and couples kissing or embracing. The colors red and pink are often associated with Valentine’s Day.
