BLUES ON THE RIDEAU @ THE COVE ends the season with a bang May 12 with the TERRY GILLESPIE BAND

The BLUES ON THE RIDEAU Dinner & Show Fundraiser Series @ THE COVE INN, Westport Ontario ended the 2016/17 Season in style Friday May 12th with Vankleek Hill’s own TERRY GILLESPIE and his band www.terrygillespie.ca delivering a great show – Terry on vocals, guitar and harmonica, Andrew Cowan on guitar, Chris Breitner on bass and Wayne Stoute on drums. Blues, Soul, Funk, Reggae – we got it all including lots of songs from his brand new CD “Home Boy”. Cove Manager Seamus Cowan joined them on stage to play some bass for a few songs in the last set as did surprise BOTR regular Jeffrey McKay on harmonica. This was one of the first stops on Terry’s NEW “Home Boy” CD LAUNCH TOUR – they head off to the GTA for more shows this week so Toronto Blues fans take note – get out and see these guys when they’re in your neck of the woods – truly one of the most unique Blues artists on the scene today – they will put you “in the groove” – guaranteed! (Upcoming dates and venues are on Terry’s website).

The Cove served up another fabulous buffet dinner featuring roast beef brisket, cajun catfish and butter chicken with all the usual excellent veggies, salads and dessert.

$330 was raised for 4-H Ontario, Leeds Chapter bringing this year’s donation total to just under $4K – almost $64K has now been raised for local Westport charities since the BOTR @ The Cove Series started 12 years ago.

Lots of great Door Prizes were given out as always – several CD’s (including two copies of “Home Boy”), Kingston Blues Society and Ottawa Blues Society memberships, Jacob’s Creek Wine, The Cove Inn and Choose The Blues t-shirts and more.

Since it was the last show of the season we also had the big end-of-season PRIZE DRAW – two Comment Cards were pulled from all of the cards submitted over the year – and the WINNERS are:

1st PRIZE – 2 Night Getaway (bed & breakfast) at The Cove – Gordon Flagler, Orangeville/Gananoque. He was there that night to receive the prize!
2nd PRIZE – Dinner & Show for 2 at one of next season’s BOTR shows – MaryAnn Schryer from Ottawa (she attended GODBOOGIE’S show in April)
CONGRATULATIONS to both!

Here’s what some of the attendees had to say about Friday’s show on their COMMENT CARDS:

“Great service. Fabulous music. Marvellous sound”
Ed Stephen, Brockville (Has attended many BOTR nights in the past)

“A fabulous place for a nice dinner on the Rideau. Great people and exceptional music. The perfect spot for a Getaway Weekend”
Suzanne Charest, Ottawa (First time attending a BOTR night)

“We always look forward to our nights at BOTR @ The Cove. They never disappoint! Thank you. 10 out of 10 for everything – venue, food, service, sound and band. Ellie Lambert, Kingston (Has attended 5 previous BOTR nights)

“I’ve been to The Cove many times and it’s always filled with great people, great music and lots of good times. The family atmosphere here is fun and enjoyable” Cathy Hay, Perth (Has attened 2 previous BOTR nights)

A big end of season THANK YOU goes out to our Sponsors for their help and support with this year’s Series – we couldn’t do it without them – JACOB’S CREEK WINES, PERTH BREWERY, DAWG FM Ottawa, LAKE 88 Perth, OTTAWA BLUES SOCIETY and KINGSTON BLUES SOCIETY.

Also the local and regional media especially The Westport Review-Mirror, EMC Metroland Smiths Falls & Perth, The Humm, Explore Westport, Village of Westport Chamber of Commerce, DAWG FM Ottawa, LAKE 88 Perth and CBC Ottawa All In A Day.

Graven and Ben Mullin at the Cove Inn!

 

(Jaybird)… promises to continue Graven’s lyrical flair with songs like “Big Lake, Sky Summer”, “In the Woods of Me” and “Lone”. Here, McKechnie walks the ridges of an alt-country landscape planting seeds of folk-rock along the way. What sprouts up are songs he calls his “thickest”, “crunchiest” and “folk-rocky-est” to date.”
Andre Gagne (Ottawa Life Magazine)

The alt-folk, spacey, backwoods rock rail rider Graven and his guitar guru/voice Venus Ben Mullin are set to stage an interstellar night of sonic delight in the beautiful, field-jewel town of Westport on Friday May 26.

Graven is the alt-country folk-rock mindscape of Matt McKechnie. His new album features percussion from JUNO winner Joel Plaskett’s drummer Dave Marsh.

Christmas Day

9

 

Many Christians in Canada mark the birth of Jesus Christ on December 25, which is known as Christmas Day. It is a day of celebration when many Canadians exchange gifts and enjoy festive meals.

Many Canadians have a day off work on December 25 and many spend the day with close relatives or friends. It is customary to exchange gifts, enjoy a special festive meal and, perhaps, attend a special church service.

The traditions centered on Christmas gifts in Canada vary a lot between families. In some families, a mythical figure called Santa Claus brings gifts. He travels on a sleigh pulled by reindeer, enters homes via the chimney and leaves presents and candy in Christmas stockings or in a pile under the Christmas tree.

Symbols of Christmas Day

There are many symbols of Christmas. These include images of baby Jesus and the Holy family in the stable, stars and Christmas trees. Another important symbol of Christmas is Santa Claus. This is a mythical figure with origins in European, particularly British, Dutch and German, cultures. He is a jolly man who wears a red suit, has a long white beard, lives at the North Pole and travels in a sleigh pulled by reindeer.

Westport – Remembrance Day Ceremony

Celebrate the Brave. Veterans Stay Overnight. Free. At 10:40 am, students and staffs at Westport stop to remember our fallen soldiers with a minutes silence.

 

About Remembrance Day

 

Remembrance Day marks the anniversary of the official end of the World War I hostilities on November 11, 1918. World War I was a massive conflict was played out over the whole globe, but particularly in Europe, where troops from Canada supported the Allied forces.

Some 100,000 Canadian soldiers died in the First and Second World Wars.

All government buildings fly the Canadian flag this day and people remember those who fought for Canada during a two minute silence at 10 :40 am. Many people wear poppies before and on Remembrance Day to show their respect and support for Canadian troops. Poppies are generally handed out free but often a voluntary donation is given in exchange.

In Canada, November 11 is officially called Remembrance Day, but it is also known as Armistice Day and Poppy Day. Remembrance Day is commemorated in many countries, particularly members of the Commonwealth, including Australia and New Zealand (where it is also referred to as Armistice Day). In the United States, Veterans Day falls on the same date. In the United Kingdom, the Sunday closest to November 11 is known as Remembrance Sunday.In Canada, November 11 is officially called Remembrance Day, but it is also known as Armistice Day and Poppy Day.

Remembrance Day is not a statutory holiday in Ontario, making it the most controversial non-stat holiday in the province. Many people think that is should be a statutory holiday all across Canada.
