World Art Games Sarnia Connection

World Art Games Sarnia...

 World Art Games - the Olympics of artists!  Who knew such a thing existed.  We sure didn't until recently when Valerie MacGregor-Rempel stopped into the store looking for a non-traditional version of 'Oh Canada' anthem.  She needed it to bring with her to Turkey for the international conference leading up to WAG.  Valerie has been chosen to head the National Committee representing Canada for this exciting  world event. Sadly, we did not have a suitable version in stock BUT we had her listen on line to our favourite version of Oh Canada by the band Daylight for Deadeyes (who have played in-store and are regulars at Paddy Flaherty's).  Valerie loved it and felt it was PERFECT.  It does not appear on any of their CD's (which we do have in stock), so I fired off an email to Chris Gormley of the band, who replied almost immediately that he was happy ...

DANNY MICHEL – BLACK BIRDS ARE DANCING OVER ME

Posted in: Music Guide, What's New | No Comments

DANNY MICHEL – BLACK...

Black Birds Are Dancing Over Me is Danny Michel’s 10th album, and first on a label in almost five years. The lyrically poignant, Juno nominated singer-songwriter‟s new album is a gem, and brings Michel and his committed audience to Six Shooter Records. Black Birds Are Dancing Over Me dives into the waves of Belize‟s musical deep, featuring Mayan guitar, turtle shells, donkey jaw-bone and traditional Garifuna segunda and primero drums. Michel cultivates lush rhythms and sounds as the perfect backdrop for his buoyantly eloquent songwriting style. To make the record, Danny relocated from Ontario to the foot of the Xunantunich Mayan ruins in Benque Viejo del Carmen to work with pioneering producer Ivan Duran at Stonetree Records, a label/studio that has been instrumental in bringing the Belizean sound to the world. There he teamed up with members of the Garifuna Collective to form The Benque Players. The album came together unlike any ...

Wall to Wall Weekend Music

Posted in: ADVENTURES OF CHEEKY CHARLIE, Art, Concerts & Events, First Friday, Local Talent, News | No Comments

Wall to Wall Weekend Music

The weekend started out on the right note during the September First Friday.  Young singer and songwriter Elena Feick played all original songs she composed as the First Friday crowds moved around the room looking at the artwork of Jale Fancey. Elena's songs, though sung softly, carry much emotion and meaning in them.  Somewhat like the art of Jale.  All pieces are photographs she took that have been enlarged and printed onto stretched canvas.  Her favourite subject matter of nature are similtaniously calming and exciting to look at.  Also as part of her exhibit that is on display until the end of September, there are smaller matted versions and greeting cards for sale.  My personal picks are a group displayed together with fall colours.  Very timely indeed.  My other favourite is a close up of an intensly red Chrysanthemum.  It literally pops from the canvas. Following the First Friday comes Saturday of ...
