Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated in Canada, the United States, some of the Caribbean islands, and Liberia. It began as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Similarly named festival holidays occur in Germany and Japan. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States, and around the same part of the year in other places.

What do people do?

Many people have a day off work on the second Monday of October. They often use the three-day Thanksgiving weekend to visit family or friends who live far away, or to receive them in their own homes. Many people also prepare a special meal to eat at some point during the long weekend. Traditionally, this included roast turkey and seasonal produce, such as pumpkin, corn ears and pecan nuts. Now, the meal may consist of other foods, particularly if the family is of non-European descent.

Nolan Hubbard at the Cove Inn!

 

Nolan Hubbard boldly emerges as vocalist, guitarist and composer of evocative acoustic-pop masterpieces with the forthcoming release of his debut album and his moving and memorable lead-off single Today.

The album was recorded in Nashville alongside top session players, and was produced by Canadian industry veteran Douglas Romanow. The time spent in Music City USA proved to be edifying and encouraging for Hubbard, as he felt both in awe of the surroundings but also emboldened by the experience – awed by the significance of being one of the mecca’s of the music business, but also emboldened because he came to realize that he had what it took as a songwriter and player to hang with some of the world’s best.

Born and raised in the small eastern Ontario community of Gananoque, just east of Kingston, Hubbard grew up in a home immersed in music, particularly what might be called the modern Great Canadian Songbook.

Hubbard got his first guitar at age 11, taking to the instrument with a dedication and obvious ability and quickly becoming a self-taught prodigy. By 17, his tastes had begun to change as he became more artistically confident and adventurous, expanding his repertoire into a more acoustic style. At the same time, he started to experiment with singing along to his playing, revealing a voice that was surprisingly soulful, impactful and one that made people listen intently. He knew immediately he wanted to be able to move people with just a guitar, his voice and his songs.

The song Sandbanks is an affectionate ode to a popular beach area in Prince Edward County in Ontario, but Hubbard said it could apply to any place that evokes warm, wonderful affectionate memories.

This album is a game changer for Hubbard, as he’s stepped out with a confident and strong debut – a collection of songs that are accessible, compelling and which wind their way into people’s souls. It’s a record that will undoubtedly make music lovers, cultural tastemakers and the music industry feel good about the future of popular music in Canada.

188th Annual DELTA FAIR

 

 

The Delta Fair is one of the summer’s hottest attractions in Eastern Ontario.

Established in 1830, Delta Fair is one of Ontario’s oldest operating Agricultural Fairs. The first president was the Honourable Charles Jones, Member of the Upper Canada Legislative Council. Until 1866, the Fair rotated locations between Delta, Farmersville (Athens) and Gananoque before settling in Delta, on land owned by the Thomas Morris family. The grounds were leased until 1911, when the Fair Board purchased the land at a cost of $1600.00

Originally incorporated as the “South Leeds Agricultural Society”, the members opted to change the name to the present, “Delta Agricultural Society”, following the 100th Anniversary in 1930. Now held annually in July, the Fair, also known as the “People’s Holiday” has taken place in August and September.
We will of course be open during the fair with tours of the mill from 10 am to 5 pm each day. We’ll have a milling demonstration starting at 1 pm on Saturday. Admission is free (donations appreciated).
The Delta Fair offers the opportunity to celebrate and reward agricultural pursuits. We offer a wide variety of prizes, ribbons, monies and trophies for all ages. The public is invited to enter competitions in areas such as:
