This week the Wednesday Market was so much fun!!! We had Kristy Hunter and her PADDLE friends performing for the first half of the afternoon, everyone enjoyed their choice of songs as they were ones we all know and could sing along to. For the second half of the day we had "the supper singers", Kristy Hunters, Wanda Schild and Steph Clarke...such great musical sounds, both groups were truly enjoyed! Thanks for helping to make our day a great one!
Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of the supper singers...next time!

June 18th, Market
This Wednesday June 18th, at the Market we will have two entertainers, a duo, Larry Chassie and Jim, from noon to 2:00pm, what I know about Larry and Jim is they are seniors and they play "old country"...

Rose-Erin Stokes will perform from 3:30pm to 5:00pm, she is from Astorville, Ontario grew up in a home full of music, poetry and drama. Direct and honest, her music tells stories of love lost and silver linings.
Her debut EP is full of vulnerable lyrics that give the listener a window into this songstress’ heart. Her melodies range from ethereal pop and playful soul, to toe tapping folk, and leaves the listener wanting more from this talented young artist.

Sounds like it will be an awesome day of music...we look forward to seeing you there!

Noon to 5:00pm. in front of the @Discovery North Bay Museum!
Rain or shine!
