Jazz Night with Spencer Evans

 

The Cove Inn hosts one of the most original and memorable Live Music Experiences you’ll have! The Popular Spencer Evans Trio with Andy Love on drums, Seamus Cowan on bass and Spencer Evans on piano, clarinet and vocals has proven a formidable three performing all styles of music to huge crowds of all ages. The party has been going for over 21 years now! Join us for dinner too… The Trio plays select dates throughout the year and EVERY THURSDAY from Victoria Day Weekend to Thanksgiving Long Weekend. Call The Cove 1.888.COVE.INN to make reservations and confirm dates.

SPENCER EVANS was born in Picton, grew up around the Quinte area, and graduated from B.C.I. Spencer plays piano, clarinet, accordion, sings, dances, prances and has been a professional musician for the past 15 years. He has played Bermuda to Bosnia, New Orleans to the North Pole, and has recorded and toured with The Cowboy Junkies, Sarah Harmer and Pat Temple, and has performed with Jeff Healey, Dan Aykroyd, Willie P. Bennett, Jack Mahieu, Alex Pangman, Maria Muldaur, and Toronto’s Swing Gang, among countless others. Spencer has appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, CBC Radio’s The Vinyl Café with Stuart McLean, MUCHmusic and CMT. A resident of Kingston for several years, Spencer keeps busy playing with numerous local bands such as Bloom, Pico de Gallo, Ghetto Xpress, The River Cats and various jazzy combos.

SEAMUS COWAN plays the low bass and sings the high notes…Kind of strange but it works. He has played all kinds of music in his career so he fits right in.

ANDY LOVE has a solid synergy with the boys. His drumming is some of the tastiest around and his ferocity is difficult to tame, behind the kit that is. He has performed with Spencer for over 30 years now and has a brotherly connection with him on stage. He is also very lyrical in his playing style as well as the fact that he sings as well! Together, the trio are a powerful combination!

JAZZ NIGHT will continue EVERY THURSDAY from the May Long Weekend to Thanksgiving Weekend. The Trio plays select dates throughout the year and is available for special events and weddings and more! Contact Spencer Evans at spencer_evans@yahoo.com for more information.

Mother’s Day – May 8

2

A popular day for gifts of flowers and greeting cards.

Many Canadians celebrate Mother’s Day by showing their appreciation for mothers or mother figures. The Mother’s Day date in Canada is on the second Sunday of May each year.

What Do People Do?

Many people in Canada express their gratitude towards mothers and mother figures on 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.

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.

Rideau Lakes Horticultural Society

1

RIDEAU LAKES HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY presents speaker Joanna Kowalczyk – The Art and Science of Pruning starting at 7:15pm at the Portland Community Hall. All Welcome! ($5.00 admission for non-members)

The Society provides free refreshments and door prizes, as well as information and advice on all your gardening needs.

Opening in 2000, with only one section of the debris-filled foundation of a collapsed dairy barn cleared and a few newly planted gardens, the Walls have gone on to create a destination that provides a unique gardening experience.

Finding the weather in our area to include fairly significant droughts and hot spells, the Walls decided to focus on long-blooming, drought tolerant, lower maintenance succulents and alpines. They seek rare and unusual seeds from around the world and not normally found in the retail trade, which they germinate, grow in their gardens and observe for a year before offering to their customers. They also offer workshops in hypertufa containers and decorative leaf art, which you can use as water features, birdbaths, planting containers and stepping stones.

Judy Wall trained in Horticulture at University of Guelph and is a Lanark County Master Gardener. She is the Past President of the Ottawa Valley Rock Garden and Horticultural Society, and a member of the North American and Ontario Rock Garden Societies.
