Don Sawchuck Was the Featured Performer April 20, 2012

Those who chose to drive around the “road closed” signs on Friday night were treated to a fine opening set by Don Sawchuk. They also found that there is actually no construction happening around the Mill Courtland Community Centre or the access to the driveway on Mill Street. Don was accompanied by Don Pharoah on percussion and Gwen Potter on Viola. We got to hear some of Don’s work at the Black Walnut Folk Club last year and at an open sing-around that he hosted for us at the Millrace Festival in August, it was clear that Don’s musical ability was outstanding. Don is a singer-songwriter who grows on you some more each time you get to see him perform. You can see him on Youtube including this link: .”

Some of our regular open stage performers did not make it but we had 15 open stage acts after Don was finished. Apologies to the last two performers who were limited to 1 song each because we ran out of time. We even had two first time Black Walnut performers as follows:

Nathan Few
Dan Hergott
Dan Kearney
Gwen Potter
Randy Ouillette
Russ Bishop
Scott Abrams
Robbie Hancock – NEW
David Maranta
Wayne Cheater
Bruce Williams
Kim Ellis
Ruth Jenkins
Peter Light
Dan Pharoah – NEW

Next Month on Friday May 18, we’ll be back with an all open stage evening.
