Fair Wind will be the Feature Performers October 19, 2018

On Friday October 19th, 2018 at 8pm we will be back at the Mill Courtland Community Centre for our monthly Open Stage. Fair Wind will be the featured performers to start of the evening with a 30 minute set of traditional Celtic music.
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 November 16th.

The Fair Wind…Traditional Celtic Music:

The Fair Wind sings and plays acoustically, the traditional folk music of England, Ireland, Scotland, and Cape Breton. Comprised of Carole Pines, Ruth Shushan, Mark Pancer, and Bob Mino, they collectively play the fiddle, penny whistle, low whistle, guitar, mandolin, banjolin, Irish bouzouki, banjo, bodhran, harmonica, spoons, and mountain dulcimer. Along with their songs they treat listeners to traditional jigs, reels, and other dance forms mined from the rich heritage of the British Isles and Ireland. The Fair Wind promises to transport listeners with fine harmonies and creative arrangements.
