Join United Tapestry at 7:00 pm on Sunday, July 7th, 2019 at the historic United Church in Harbourville, N.S. for fundraising evening filled with song and fun.
We are very excited and honoured to host the following very talented musicians to the stage:
Porter & Breau
Sandi Marie Porter & Guy Breau came home to the Valley four years ago by way of Toronto, Montreal, Mexico and Florida. Singers, songwriters, guitar players – they completed a 10-year residency at Toronto’s Grossman’s Tavern, Home of the Blues. Recently played another residency in a warmer climate – at Lizard Joe’s in Chelem, Mexico. For the last two years, they have hosted the Saturday Spaghetti Jam at The Noodle Guy in Port Williams, as well as appearances at various Valley venues and events – Joe’s Night Kitchen, etc. They are happily enjoying the music work in the Valley and are looking forward to sharing their tunes with new folk on the North Mountain. Combining various carefully-chosen covers with their originals, Sandi & Guy deliver an entertaining mixed-genre of music that is sure to please.
Lang & Ackroyd
Performing, recording and touring full-time as the five-piece Lang & Ackroyd Band in the 1970s and 80s, Jim Lang and Mary Ackroyd have entertained audiences across Canada, the U.S.A. and Europe. They have recorded two albums in Alberta, as well as two ‘45’s’ in Los Angeles and Nashville. Their eclectic musical tastes were shaped by performing with dozens of musicians on their own turf: Bluegrass and Appalachian in Vermont, North Carolina and Florida; transitional fiddle and country in Ontario and Alberta; western swing and southern boogie in Texas, and country rock in California. After touring extensively and successfully, they retired from music for several decades, returning to it after they retired – period. Today, working as a duo for the first time, they play only for their own and others’ enjoyment, presenting an eclectic mix of forties pop-swing-jazz standards, western swing, folk, bluegrass, country and blues.
Kate Adams and Cathy Arsenault are Nova Scotian Valley women by heart and design. Both of these talented, fun and inspiring women play vintage Gibson guitars, weaving percussive rhythms with fing-picking and imaginative guitar tunes. The creative arrangements and harmonies are the result of 25 years of shared song writing and performance. In 1996, these two songwriters began a musical journey as a twosome, grew to a quartet and then, in 2000, expanded to seven members; it was then they recorded their CD: “Live at Fundy Folk.” Now their journey has come full circle, and they are back to the original union of two. “Love is all we Leave,” released in 2014 is an acoustic off-the-floor album which charms and wiles, just as the women do in concert.
Suggested free-will offering is $15 per person.
