Posted by on Sep 5, 2018 | 0 comments

The Summer Break is Over. On Friday September 21st, 2018 at 8pm we will be back at the Mill Courtland Community Centre for our monthly Open Stage. There will be no feature set this month so that means lots of time for Open Stage performers.
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.
We have posted our Code of Conduct page which we have adopted so that our event can continue in the Community Centre. The other 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 wheelchair accessible, alcohol, smoke and peanut free and every show is different. If you don’t come, you’ll miss it. The next open stage will be October 19th.

Posted by on May 29, 2018 | 0 comments

It was the annual Black Walnut for the “second homeless” on the May long weekend, plus for exceptional reasons our Committee was short-handed. Still, thanks to our faithful few a successful production was staged.  For our next date on Friday June 15, 2018 at 8pm, we will start out with a feature set by Gordon Castle, which will without a doubt be a very interesting musical event.

Thanks to our performers on May 18th, who performed extra songs. They were:

  1. Jack Cole
  2. Julie and Peter
  3. Paul Rempel
  4. Ron Hammar
  5. Cam and Pat
  6. David Maranta
