SUMMER STUDENT BEGINS AT THE HALL

The Board and membership would like to welcome Cassia Bard-Cavers for the summer where she will spend Monday - Friday, 9:00 - 4:00 tending the phone for your urgent messages, assisting with and learning about technical aspects of The Hall's equipment and continuing the enormous chore of cataloguing and digitizing the huge amount of historical music which the Association has accumulated over the years.

We can't encourage you to drop in and say hello but we hope you join us in welcoming Cassie and hope she has a productive and fulfilling summer.

VIRTUAL OPEN MIC AT THE HALL ONCE AGAIN ENTERTAINS

The Hall, the Parrsboro Lions Club and CICR radio joined forces again this evening to present the fourth in a series of virtual open mic nights.   These evenings depend on the willingness and generosity of entertainers from all over our area to participate, record themselves and share their videos with us so we can bring them to you.   Our thanks to all those who contribute; you make these nights possible and so very entertaining.

Tonight was no exception as another great variety of music was on our 'stage'.   If you missed it you can still watch the show by going to the Live Web Events page here and selecting it from the list of videos of all the previous shows presented in the series.

Tune in again next week for the next in our Social Distance concerts which will feature Rob Bentley playing all the instruments and providing the vocals.   Truly a unique concert that is not to be missed.

SOCIAL-DISTANCE CONCERT SERIES INTRODUCES 'THE SONGWRITERS'


What an amazing evening of music this evening from The Hall as local singer/songwriters gathered to discuss their songwriting techniques/inspirations and perform their own original songs in a small, socially-distanced gathering.   And what a treat it was for all.   It is a special privilege to be able to take a small glimpse into the talents in our own area.   This concept will definitely be repeated in the future.

If you missed it you can watch the whole concert here by clicking on the video link.

Next week will feature virtual open mic 4.0 as The Hall, the Parrsboro Lions Club and CICR radio all pitch in to help entertain with 'live' music during these difficult times.

VIRTUAL OPEN MIC ONCE AGAIN ENTERTAINS A GOOD AUDIENCE


The Hall hosted it's third 'virtual' open mic this evening and from what we can tell, the audience is growing as the word gets about.  

We would like to thank each and every performer who has so willingly taken the time to record a video and send it in.  It is only through the time and talents of these individuals that these evenings are possible.


You can view it here on the Live Web Events Page; or at www.parrsborolionsclub.ca; on Eastlink Cable 5 or on CICR radio so there are ample opportunities to join in.    Even if you miss the scheduled time, you can still view the video of this, and all the other Social-Distance concerts by selecting it from the icons on the Live Web Events page.  There will be another concert this coming Sunday so be sure to tune in.
