Onion Honey Will be the Feature Performers at Black Walnut, May 20th
On Friday May 20th, 2016 we will be back to the Mill Courtland Community Centre for our monthly Open Stage. “Onion Honey” will start our evening with a 30 minute set. “A pair of pseudo-gingers with banjos, Esther Wheaton and David Pike started playing music together around the same time they started cooking together and watching dozens of astronomy documentaries together; the result is a deliciously stellar blend of old-time and traditional folk tunes that will tug at heartstrings and set feet a-tappin’.
They have played all over Southern Ontario and toured the Maritimes – downtown streets and uptown theatres, sunny fields and dingy cafés, living rooms, farmers’ markets, and once a hot air balloon festival.
Originally a duo, Onion Honey have lately grown to four with the addition of local folkies Michelle Horel and Stuart Cybulskie.
The band play banjo, mandolin, guitar, banjolele, double bass, and washboard in their pursuit of the sounds of the past.”
At about 8:30pm, Onion Honey will finish up their set and we will start-up our Acoustic Open Stage.Bring your guitars, accordions, voices, acoustic instruments of all sorts or just your eyes and ears and make yourself feel “at home”. Do not feel shy because you have not played for us before. The doors will open and sign-up for the open stage will start at 7:30 pm. Remember when you sign up you get to play/sing two songs in a set of 10 minutes or less and you need to be ready to start playing when your turn starts so you won’t lose any of your 10 minutes.
The details are outlined on our About Page. The parking is free at the back of the Mill-Courtland Community Centre and admission is still $3 at the door. the facility is accessible, alcohol, smoke and peanut free and every show is different. If you don’t come, you’ll miss it.
