VIRTUAL OPEN MIC XVII THE HALL

The first virtual open mic from The Hall was broadcast this evening and it was a terrific way to start the new year.


With several performers doing homage to Robbie Burns, and two new performers joining in on the fun, the music was a delight from start to finish.   It is truly an honour to be able to continue to celebrate our local performers, and provide a platform for others from afar to provide entertainment during this period when live, in person performing is simply not advisable.


Once again many thanks must go to Rob Bentley for coming up with the concept and then putting in the time and effort to make it all happen, complete with special effects.

Tune in next week for the next Social Distance concert.

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

CHRISTMAS VIRTUAL OPEN MIC A WONDERFUL EVENING

There could have been no more fitting a way to conclude our virtual open mic presentations than VOM XV.    This was our 37th in the Social-Distance concert series and brought some much needed Christmas cheer to the community and beyond.

Thank you to everyone who has continued to support these presentations.    Without the willingness of all these talented individuals, none of these concerts and open mics would have been possible.

Tune in next week for the final Social-Distance concert of 2020 when we will present another annual tradition virtually - Christmas Concert at The Hall.

SOCIAL-DISTANCE CONCERT BRINGS LIVING CHRISTMAS TREE BACK

This Week's concert featured a video of last year's performance of the Living Christmas Tree as we try to keep traditions going through the pandemic.   With a lot of work and cooperation on the part of all of us, and with the vaccines on the horizon, perhaps this too will be able to resume in 2021.

In the meantime, we hope you enjoyed revisiting this wonderful traditional presentation.

VIRTUAL OPEN MIC XIV FEATURED ANNUAL TREE LIGHTING


This week's virtual open mic started a little differently by airing a virtual tree lighting from the bandstand.   Organized by the Board of Trade and the Claus Cause the actual event was held the night before and the tree darkened until it was officially 'lit' at 7:00 pm Sunday.   A creative and safe way to keep a tradition alive.


The lighting was followed by the actual open mic and we would like to thank again all those who participated and shared their time and talents so we can continue to bring entertainment during these difficult times.


Next week we will once again continue a local tradition with a virtual Living Christmas Tree, presenting videos from previous years.   So be sure to tune in and take part.

If you did, we hope you enjoyed and will watch again. If you missed it, you can go to www.thehall.ca and check it out on the Live Web Events page. And what a way to look back at this long journey, which is not yet ended, to keep music and performing alive at The Hall and in the community.

Special mention and thanks certainly must go to Rob Bentley whose creativity, talent and energy have combined to be the driving force and technical wizardry behind all of these virtual performances. Thanks also to all the performers who were featured this evening, and the even greater number we could not include in a brief presentation, who have kept the faith, and the music, going. Look for us again next week for Virtual Open Mic XIV.

VIRTUAL OPEN MIC XIII A WONDERFUL VARIETY


Another great evening of entertainment was unveiled during the 13th virtual open mic show from The Hall.   Carl introduced a song from a poem by Bruce Graham, the Citizens' choir performed their second virtual recording, Rob showed off his 'cookie tin banjo', Greg Moore did a great rendition of Edmund Fitzgerald in front of a green screen (more magic by Rob) and much, much more.  


These shows just keep getting better and better so thank you to all who contribute their time, talent and energy to help keep the open mic spirit alive during these times when we cannot assemble and enjoy the company of others.


Tune in next week for the next in our series of Social Distance concerts.

VIRTUAL OPEN MIC XII FEATURES SPECIAL PERFORMANCES

This evening's virtual open mic was truly an eclectic delight of entertainment.   Featuring in many cases, music suitable for Hallowe'en and including a couple of special appearances plus a trip into the world of silent films, there was something this evening for everyone.

                                                               (Rob once again worked his wizardry and brought us a special appearance by 'The Fly' - not the one from the VP debate)

A special appearance by the Bluewater Quartet gave us all a preview of next week's concert, and Rob once again proved his versatility and talent in a delightful rendition of the "Monster Mash".  

Be sure to tune in again next week for a full hour of blues and jazz.    And thank you to all who continue to contribute to these special evenings.

COVID QUINTET PROVIDES MARVELLOUS MUSIC


Sunday evening/'s Social-Distance concert feature d the Covid Quintet.    Garnet, Sandy, Lois, Heather and Dietmar wanted to continue on in the spirit of the King Street Strummers alive during this time during which the musical class cannot assemble at The Hall, so in a small 'bubble' they got together to make music.

And what a delightful result.   An hour of familiar music, to which you can hum or sing along, made for a delightful presentation.

Well done to all and once again thanks to Rob Bentley for providing the technical expertise as well as his time and effort, for providing this continuing series.

VIRTUAL OPEN MIC X ANOTHER FUN EVENING

(Ryan finally revealed he has a terrific voice to go along with his incredible talent on the guitar)

This Sunday evening saw our tenth virtual open mic air and it was a show filled with great music, some terrific original songs, and once again, was 'global' in scope.  It also featured a performance by the Parrsboro Citizens' Choir and hopefully this will not be the last time that we can herd the cats together.

VIRTUAL OPEN MIC 9.0 A TECHNICAL MARVEL FEATURING GREAT ENTERTAINMENT

Sunny shared an original song from Bavaria

Another great virtual open mic went out this evening from The Hall, the Parrsboro Lions club and CICR radio. Several original songs performed by their writers, including Sunny from Bavaria, Germany.



And of course once again Rob outdid himself with his technical wizardry to bring us himself and Patti singing with their daughter and her family from the United States. And then he went one further and placed Greg on a train, and in a Formula 1 car. Tremendously entertaining

It is remarkable how Rob was able to place Greg on the back of a moving train

SOCIAL-DISTANCE CONTINUES - AT A DISTANCE - WITH ROB AT 'BRINY BAY'

For those of you who have seen Rob Bentley perform, with Patti, with Wazoo, with Carl, with Hooligan's, with.....well you get the point, this evening you had (and still have) the opportunity to see Rob playing solo at Briny Bay in Five Islands.   Alone on the stage, with just his guitar, two cameras, a head full of lyrics, and a stunning talent Rob performs not just for the crowd, but with them as well.   His love of what he is doing shines through, his emotions reveal themselves in his lyrical treatment of the music, and his joy in playing radiates out when his smile lights up the stage.


What a treat it was to be part of this evening, well actually Friday evening, as Rob shares his talent and love of music with us all.


You can watch the entire hour at www.thehall.ca/livewebevents and be sure to tune in next week for another Virtual Open Mic.

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.

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
