Rallying The Troops – Military Display at The Armoury
Globe Productions is marking the 100th anniversary of WW One, when The Old Armoury played a significant role in assembling local soldiers to defend King and Country. Globe took possession of The Old Armoury, located just inside the Georgetown Fairgrounds in 2010, saving it from demolition.
On Sept 27 and 28, Globe will unveil a plaque dedicated to local soldiers in WW One and display historic artifacts from 1914-1918. On Saturday at 12:30 pm and 3:30 pm, Globe members will present two short concerts featuring the songs of WW1. An authentic WW1 pattern military field kitchen will show us how soldiers were fed in the field. An “18 Pounder” gun will be displayed and fired several times over the weekend. Collector’s Source, will display uniforms, firearms (including the Canadian Ross Rifle), photos and medals. The event is from 10 am – 5pm both days and admission is free.
Saturday, September 27 sees The St. George with The Beat Heathens, a band that has been playing together for nearly 15 years, the brainchild of former MuchMusic VJ Dan Gallagher and former Coney Hatch bass player Andy Curran. Among the original members of the band was guitarist Mike Montgomery.
Although Dan has passed away, Mike continues the band to this day. The result is a talented group that plays a wide variety of music that continues to win audiences over every night.
Veteran musicians capable of playing a huge variety of music from the sixties to the nineties and beyond.
Friday, September 26 at 8 pm, The Shepherd’s Crook presents:
Failte originated from a casual collection of musicians in the Autumn of 1991 in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. Failte (pronounced “fall-cha”) means welcome in Irish. Currently, the group consists of original member, Stephen Todd (vocals, bodhran, and tin whistle) as well as Jessica Weiler (fiddle, vocals), and Brian Crozier (guitar, vocals). The band plays traditional Celtic music with a Canadian attitude. Set lists include slow airs, ballads, jigs and reels from Ireland, Scotland and Canada
Dee Pepper has a strong, versatile voice … not unlike her kin, Larry Melton. Nice to see her featured at one of Georgetown’s best attended music venues, The McGibbon Hotel.
The return of James Woodstock and The Vegan Piranhas, long time hosts of Open Mic Night at The Copper Kettle!
The calm, steadying sound of James Woodstock`s largely original material, reminiscent of Steve Earle, Tom Russell and Guy Clark, has been missed. Room for three, on a good day, on The Bistro stage. So this edition of The Vegan bandmates will include Patrick Fraser on bass, and Carl Agar on mandolin and backing vocals. Tip of the hat to Philip John Lewin, Peter Perko, Cliff Simon, Dave Beazley and others who will be MIA … we`ve lost some good men to this stage 🙂
Come early … gonna be busy, and the boys will be playing 7:30-8:30.
Open Mic immediately afterward.
