WALKERTON – Yvonne Carroll, a member of Jubilee Arts and Music (JAM) wants everyone to know Victoria Jubilee Hall is still here, and so are the performers.
“We’re still here,” she said.
Right now, JAM is gearing up for a very special event, Songs by the Gazebo, on Sept. 13, 2-4 p.m.
It’s a free concert by some of Walkerton and area’s talented musicians – Byron and Maria Ballagh, The Dan Fogelberg Crisis, P. J. Mack and Debbie Davidson, and The Fender Benders.
Carroll said the hall isn’t open yet, but the grounds outside are lovely and filled with colour – the perfect backdrop for an outdoor concert between the hall and the post office. Scott Street will be closed for the occasion and attendance will be capped at 100 people. Bring your own lawn chair, wear a mask, practise social distancing and enjoy!
Call 519-881-2826 for more information or visit email@example.com. Rain date is Sept. 20.
The Ballaghs need no introduction to the people of Walkerton and area. Founders of SING, they’re gifted performers who have chosen to make Walkerton the home base for SING.
The Dan Fogelberg Crisis is a trio that performs favourites from the ‘80s and ‘90s.
P. J. Mack and Debbie Davidson will treat the audience to their own unique mix of folk, country and classic rock, some covers and some original.
The Fender Benders are two gifted young performers who will entertain with contemporary acoustic.
The regular series is ready to go, as soon as JAM gets the go-ahead. In the meantime, Victoria Jubilee Hall is as beautiful as ever, and the music promises to be superb.
