Spencer McKenzie at the Cove country Inn

 

When you hear Spencer MacKenzie sing and play guitar it’s hard to believe that such a young man (he just turned 17!) can play the Blues with so much skill, passion and depth. He is an “old soul in a young body”. His debut album Infected With The Blues is already earning rave reviews and getting major airplay.

He’s also landed some prestigious festival gigs this summer including Kitchener Bluesfest, the West Coast Blues Festival, Southside Shuffle and the Canal Bank Shuffle) and is one of the finalists at the Toronto Blues Society’s Talent Search in July 2016. And the Blues Foundation in Memphis has awarded him a scholarship to attend a Blues Camp in Chicago.

Spencer is backed by a great young band – not one is over the age of 21! – and will be joined by a Special Guest – Hamilton guitarist BRANT PARKER – for this show (Brant has helped mentor Spencer). I predict a great career ahead for this young man. Come and see him LIVE before he gets famous so you can say “I saw him when”.
Proceeds to Rideau Vista & St. Edward’s Elementary Schools. $65+tx dinner & show.

Happy labour day!

 

Labour Day (Labor Day in the United States) is an annual holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers. For most countries, Labour Day is synonymous with, or linked with, International Workers’ Day, which occurs on 1 May.
In Canada and the United States, Labour Day is celebrated on the first Monday of September and considered the unofficial end of summer, with summer vacations ending and students returning to school around then.

The form for the celebration of Labor Day was outlined in the first proposal for the holiday: A street parade to exhibit to the public “the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations”, followed by a festival for the workers and their friends and families. This became the pattern for Labor Day celebrations. Speeches by prominent men and women were introduced later, as more emphasis was placed upon the civil significance of the holiday. Still later, by a resolution of the American Federation of Labor convention of 1909, the Sunday preceding Labor Day was adopted as Labor Sunday and dedicated to the spiritual and educational aspects of the Labor movement.

Labor Day is called the “unofficial end of summer” because it marks the end of the cultural summer season. Many take their two-week vacations during the two weeks ending Labor Day weekend. Many fall activities, such as school and sports begin about this time.
