So happy the Festival has gotten off to such a great start. Atwater Library welcomed a capacity crowd and major applause for Jan Gregory’s and Margaret Nicolai’s stories and Susan Palmer’s harp and singing.
The film Ballymun produced a local drama. The film arrived from Ireland just 1.5 hours before it was to be screened. Documentary’s story is simple – music transforms lives. The film is rich in associations and the discussion of it by Peggy Curran, Debbie Carroll and Christopher Joyce led to many questions and comments from the audience.
This morning we are off on the Walking Tour which is FULLY booked.
Looking forward greatly to this evening’s Concert. I’ve never seen The Bombadils, but I hear they are a great group who play lots of instruments and sing too. And the best of Bernadette Short’s Irish dancers will be impressive. Kathleen McAuliffe, Brigitte O’Halloran, Ashley Foot, Myriam Leblanc and Stefano Saykaly have each chosen great songs. They’ll sing alone and also in duets and trios. See you there. Tickets available at the door $25. Victoria Hall 4626 Sherbrooke Street West, Westmount.
