ROBBIE BURNS NIGHT AT THE HALL


Robbie Burns night came to The Hall this evening, albeit virtually, courtesy of a wonderfully varied concert by Hooligan's Ruff who celebrated Scotland's bard in grand style. From humorous and raucous, to plaintiff and mellow, they did the poet proud. And yes, there was even the traditional Address to The Haggis, with a virtual piper, dagger and haggis of course but wonderfully rendered by Martin.

Thanks to all four members of the group for reminding us that some traditions can survive and even thrive under these difficult conditions. If you missed it you can visit the Live Web Events page at www.thehall.ca and click on the Robbie Burns link (center of the top row of images) and enjoy an hour or more of terrific entertainment.

VIRTUAL CHRISTMAS CONCERT KEEPS TRADITION ALIVE


Sunday evening The Hall broadcast its' annual Christmas Concert, this time virtually.   Featuring videos from previous Christmas concerts by the groups which normally meet and perform at The Hall but which have not been able due to the pandemic, it also included performances by many others which added to the sense of this being a community wide celebration.


And the concert was a sparkling success.   Engineered by Rob Bentley the season was celebrated in music and well appreciated by all who watched or listened.   You can still view the entire concert by going to the Live Web Events page here on this website and clicking on the center photo of the top row.


We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a safe and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  And to thank all those who supported The Hall in 2020.   This has been an unprecedented year for all, marked with tragedies beyond comprehension so we wish that everyone will find peace and joy in the season.

Broadcast from The Hall will resume in 2021 on January 10th with a virtual open mic.   We hope to 'see' you all there.


MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL
