20TH BROADCAST RETROSPECTIVE


In recognition of the 20th Covid Social-Distance Broadcast, Rob Bentley put together a selection of performances from each of the actual concerts and included a few from the virtual open mics to provide a great evening of entertainment.   What comes to mind when watching this review is how truly fortunate we are to have all these talented people in our area who are willing to share their time with us all to help during these difficult days of coping with the pandemic.

And of course we would be remiss if we neglected to thank Dr. Dauphinee for her public service explanation of the importance of taking the correct actions in order to protect everyone from Covid-19.

The concert series will return next week with another virtual open mic.

KEVIN WOOD PROVIDES A GREAT NIGHT OF MUSIC


Yes it was another Sunday night Social-Distance concert, this time featuring Kevin Wood who entertained us with a terrific variety of new compositions, revealing to the surprise of many just how prolific a songwriter he truly is.   It was a wonderful evening of music and we would like to thank Kevin for sharing his time and talent with us all.


Tune in next week for "Social-Distance - The Retrospective", assembled and presented by Rob Bentley.    This concert will celebrate our 20th concert/open mic since Covid closed us down, so don't miss it.

ANOTHER TERRIFIC PERFORMANCE BY THE WAZOO BLUES BAND

This evening's Social-Distance featured a visit to The Hall by the Wazoo Blues Band, and once again they put on a great performance.   Some terrific music and obviously a great deal of good humour.   Particularly as one of the cameras failed during the taping and the result was highly amusing.    But like the true troopers they are, they carried on and provided the audience with yet another stellar performance.

Next week will feature another virtual open mic, so be sure to not miss it.

ANOTHER GREAT OPEN MIC NIGHT 'AT' THE HALL

Evange performed her first song in honour of the birth of her first great-grandchild

Another great evening of music was put on this evening at the Virtual Open Mic ..the 5.0 edition.   It is hard to imagine that we have been putting on these Social-Distance concerts and virtual open mic nights now for 3 months but in the absence of live performances, rehearsals and practices at The Hall, these have provided the community and surrounding area with the opportunity to look in on, and listen to "live" music from local performers.
Who knew Patrick could play the guitar left-handed?  

We at The Hall, the Parrsboro Lions Club and CICR radio all wish to thank all of those who have contributed their time, talent and good humour to these evenings and hope that everyone tuning in, be it on our website here, the Lions website, Eastlink Cable 5 or CICR radio have enjoyed them all.   We will continue to bring these evenings to you for as long as is necessary, until we can return to hosting live open mic nights at The Hall
A virtual reunion of the Two Pressed Men brought to you by the marvels of technology
