OrchardTV Live Webcast with Whiskey Jack, Bluegrass, Orchard Studio, Saturday, Nov. 1st at 6pm

The next Live Webcast at OrchardTV is this Saturday, Nov. 1st at 6pm with “Whiskey Jack” performing songs from their new show “Stories & Songs of Stompin’ Tom”.
The band toured Canada extensively between 1979 and 1987, appearing at festivals and concerts from coast to coast. As well as being regular guests of Morningside and Variety Tonight on CBC Radio, they were stars of The Tommy Hunter Show for five years in the 1980s. They went on to make numerous appearances on The Alan Thicke Show, Fire on the Mountain, Ralph Emory, and The Nashville Network, thus earning them the distinction of being the most televised bluegrass/acoustic country band in Canada.
They also recorded with the likes of Al Cherny of Country Hoedown fame, and world-famous fiddle player Graham Townsend.
In 1993, Stompin’ Tom Connors teamed with Whiskey Jack to record one of his come-back albums, “Dr. Stompin’ Tom Connors eh?” (featuring the celebrated “Gumboot Clogaroo”), followed by a triumphant national tour.

COFFEE HOUSE FUND RAISER FOR FOOD, St. Alban’s Hall, Saturday, November 8 at 7:30 pm, Cash Donation

Food for Life is a Halton based independent food recovery organization and through various volunteer agencies it delivers recovered food to low-income neighbourhoods, providing nutritious perishable food to families on a weekly basis. The volunteers at St. Alban’s Anglican Church and St. John’s United Church are pleased to offer this  food program for people in need in the Georgetown and Glen Williams area.  Learn more at www.foodforlife.ca

Food from the Heart is an outreach program in collaboration with Community Unity and St Alban’s Anglican Church. Within the Georgetown community an unfulfilled need was determined for a hot, protein rich, and nutritious meal for many who don’t have access to kitchens. Once a month a group of volunteers prepare a hot meal at a certified community kitchen, which is then served at the Georgetown Bread Basket to its clients. Although they have received the generous support of Pete’s Meats in Glen Williams, the program is in need of funding to purchase supplies of food and containers as this program grows. 

Please come out to support these worthy causes. A cash bar will be available and snacks will be sold. A small cash donation is your ticket to an evening of socializing and music.st-alban-glen-williams
