Christmas isn’t complete without an evening in The Piano Hall. This year the choir offers a collection of traditional English music including Vaughan Williams’ ‘Fantasy on Christmas Themes’. A splendid spread of culinary treats follows the concert, which will, of course include Yvonne Oldaker’s delicious mince tarts!

You won’t want to miss the music and wit of Bill Craig.
Bill was born and raised in Ireland, and lived in London in 1973. He moved to Toronto in 1974. He first performed as a vocalist for various Rock ‘n Roll bands in Ireland in 1967.
In 1969, Bill began playing guitar on stage and has stayed with it as his main instrument ever since. Throughout this period, he maintained an interest in the music of his native Ireland, and would occasionally confuse, and usually please, rock audiences with a solo voice guitar rendition. Bill fills The Crook with a wide variety of sounds and a larger than life personality that works well in the room.
Cead Mile Failte…A Hundred Thousand Welcomes.
The soothing sounds of Steve Melville’s jazz guitar layered over his Country, Latin, Traditional, Ballad and Jazz tracks – relaxing musical backdrop to a tapas style meal balanced by a fine wine or innovative cocktail. All happening each Tuesday night at the fabulous Uncorked on Main, 6-9 pm (when you can actually walk right into Uncorked and grab a seat!). With just a hint of Lenny Breau, this is the lounge experience Georgetown has been missing.
Steve picked up guitar at the age of 15 in his native Jamaica, and was encouraged by the expert hand of legendary Ska pioneer Ernest Ranglin. (Photo L-R: Jamaica natives Monty Alexander, Ernest Ranglin and Steve Melville).
He also plays at local events, and has a weekly Saturday stint from 6-10 pm at Georgetown’s The Cellar Steak and Seafood fine dining restaurant. Having retired from Air Canada 20 years ago, Steve has since applied his time and energy to becoming the guitarist that showed so much potential as a youth. Air Canada’s gift to the local live music scene!
