In Concert May 13 – Christine Graves and Kate Weekes

 

A superb night of original music from two established songwriters. Both have new stories and sweet voices to share in this beautiful venue. One night only!

Christine Graves and Kate Weekes are singer-songwriters with roots in the Perth area. Kate is originally from Smiths Falls and has spent the past decade living in the Yukon Territory. For the winter of 2017, Kate’s adventures took her to Norway where she was working as a wilderness guide with a team of 52 sled dogs. Christine lived in Balderson for 15 years, often writing songs that reflected the Lanark landscape and life. She now resides in Ottawa.

The two songwriters carry an affinity for rural Canada and have teamed up to share an evening of song in concert. They will be accompanied by James Stephens on fiddle and Franc van Oort on guitars.

St Patrick’s Day at the Legion

 

5

 

St Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador on the nearest Monday to March 17 each year. It remembers St Patrick, a missionary who converted many of Ireland’s inhabitants to Christianity in the 5th century. His feast day also celebrates Irish culture.

St Patrick’s Day marks the feast day and anniversary of the death of a Christian missionary known as Patrick. He was born in the year 387, probably somewhere near the present day border between Scotland and England. At the age of 16, he was captured and taken to Ireland as a slave. During this period, he became very religious and after six years he fled back to his family.

St Patrick’s Day celebrations were brought to Canada by Irish immigrants. The day is a bank holiday in Northern Ireland and a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland. In the rest of the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia and New Zealand, it is celebrated, but is not an official holiday.
People who have an Irish background or enjoy Irish culture may hold Irish themed parties and serve traditional dishes, such as Colcannon or Irish stew. Colcannon is a dish of mashed potatoes mixed with kale or cabbage and Irish stew is traditionally made with lamb and root vegetables.

Symbol

The most widely-seen St Patrick’s Day symbols are the colors green, and sometimes orange, and the shamrock. The shamrock is a symbol of Ireland and a registered trademark of the Republic of Ireland. It is the leaf of the clover plant, which grows on the ground, often among grass and an Irish Catholic symbol of the Holy Trinity. It is sometimes confused with the four-leaf clover, which is a variety of the three-leaf clover and is thought to bring good luck.

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.
•    4 p.m.: Get home, get changed, feed the kids (or your pets – or both, for that matter!)
•    6 p.m.: Head out on the town and dine at one of our popular restaurants
•    8 p.m. (ish): Head to the Crystal Palace to dance in your winter boots, grab a drink at the ice bar, cozy up at the bonfire and celebrate all things Perth while watching the Fireworks show.

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.

Scottish Country Dancing is exercise for both the body and the brain, but without the usual routines associated with exercise.

Christmas Day!

9

 

Many Christians in Canada mark the birth of Jesus Christ on December 25, which is known as Christmas Day. It is a day of celebration when many Canadians exchange gifts and enjoy festive meals.

Many Canadians have a day off work on December 25 and many spend the day with close relatives or friends. It is customary to exchange gifts, enjoy a special festive meal and, perhaps, attend a special church service.

The traditions centered on Christmas gifts in Canada vary a lot between families. In some families, a mythical figure called Santa Claus brings gifts. He travels on a sleigh pulled by reindeer, enters homes via the chimney and leaves presents and candy in Christmas stockings or in a pile under the Christmas tree.

Symbols of Christmas Day

There are many symbols of Christmas. These include images of baby Jesus and the Holy family in the stable, stars and Christmas trees. Another important symbol of Christmas is Santa Claus. This is a mythical figure with origins in European, particularly British, Dutch and German, cultures. He is a jolly man who wears a red suit, has a long white beard, lives at the North Pole and travels in a sleigh pulled by reindeer.
