Suggestion: Please look after your property.

Posted by on Nov 11, 2018 | 0 comments

Please look after your own stuff. There have been a couple of times that we are aware of when items have been stolen from people visiting our monthly open stage event. Once a bike was taken from the hallway and once some instruments were stolen from outside the building. Neither the City of Kitchener who owns the community center, nor the Black Walnut open stage nor the Cedar Hills Community Group can ensure that personal property of guests of the Black Walnut Acoustic Open Stage will not be stolen. In almost twenty-five years, we are aware of only two thefts being reported. We do try to keep an eye out for anything that we find in the hall where the performance is presented.

Here is a brief Bio for the Pluckin’ Cutlers:
After a friendship spanning 25+ years The Pluckin’ Cutlers (Bob & Sue) became more than friends and found they had an interest in playing music together – Bob on banjo, mandolin, guitar and ukulele, and Sue on guitar and ukulele. Then one day around 10 years ago Toronto’s Corktown Ukulele Jam, where they performed regularly, entered their lives and all other instruments moved to the back burner. They have performed at many different venues including featuring at the Lazy Cat Café in Toronto and regular monthly performances at WUPS (the Waterloo (Region) Ukulele Performance Stage) that they founded a year ago. Bob enjoys the ballads and Sue likes the silly stuff – but they both love to play the fun music. The family that plays together stays together! Contact: WUPS.info@gmail.com
