In the Calm After The Dreadful Wind and Rain – With Correction!!

Note: I have resent this newsletter with a correction to the Amanada Bon concert date…whew!

I live in a red oak forest. Oaks hold their leaves tenaciously in the fall. We and our neighbours never know if our yards will get raked up before the snow. Well, this year Sandy and “the dreadful wind and rain” helped solve that dilemma. All the leaves are down. Now…if I can just find the time to get out there with a rake!!

In the meantime, here are three events to tweak your interest in the calm following the storm. There’s no excuse for me not to be at all of them since I never rake leaves after dark. Too many bears.

  • Rasputin’s The Next Stage at Le Michel-Ange featuring Mark Nyvlt and Sharon Coward on Nov 3rd;
  • Rasputin’s Featured Artist Series at The Westboro Masonic Hall featuring Amanda Bon and her fabulous band on Nov 24th;
  • Ottawa Valley Bluegrass Associationn presents The Spinney Brothers at The Greely Legion on Nov 20th.

Mark Nyvlt and Sharon Coward

No cover. Pass-the-hat.

As part of our mandate to support and nurture emerging artists, The Next Stage features selected artists from the Rasputin’s Open Stage. This should be a very entertaining evening featuring two talented and markedly different singer-songwriters.

Amanda Bon hits all the right notes. We have seen her progress from the Open Stage to Rasputin’s Beard and now on to our Featured Artists’ stage. Great songs, great band, and a heart warming delivery.

The Greely Legion, 8021 Mitch Owens Road (Map…)
7pm Tuesday Novemeber 20th

This is a rare opportunity to catch Canada’s premier bluegrass ensemble. Inducted into the Nova Scotia Country Music Hall of Fame in 2010, The Spinney Brothers are an internationally acclaimed band who just happen to be passing through Ottawa on a Tuesday night. In return for the valley ‘grassers helping us promote our own bluegrass event last October with Concession 23, it seemed only fair to give a shout-out to this event in return. Thanks to Spirit member Dave Porter, President, Ottawa Valley Bluegrass Music Association, for bringing this event to town.
