MERA Sunday Schoolhouse Concert Series
The MERA Sunday Schoolhouse Concerts are curated and arranged by Danny Sullivan, artistic director for the Blue Skies Music Festival. The musical genres tend to be centred around the folk, roots, alt-country styles but Danny has been happy to present bluegrass, pop/folk and Gypsie/Klezmer eclectic acts as well. The common element with all these performers is excellent musicianship combined with the ability to communicate the joy of live music in an intimate setting.
Perhaps the best way to describe what to expect is to list some of the musicians who have performed within the last several years:
Corin Raymond, CR Avery, Kate Weeks & Grant Simpson, Jim Bryson, Jason Fowler, Jeremy Fisher, Terry Tufts & Katherine Briggs, Jonathan Byrd, Evalyn Parry, Boxcar Boys, David Ross McDonald, Trent Severn, Ken Whitely, Joey Wright, Shawna Caspi, New Country Rehab, Gathering Sparks, Jory Nash, Bombadils, Slocan Ramblers, Karen Savoca, David Newland, Garnet Rogers, Fireweed, Ben Miller & Anita McDonald, Alison Lupton, Clan Hannigan, Brian MacMillan, Annie Sumi.
Our next concert will feature the legendary Ken Whiteley on Sunday May 27 at 2:00 pm.
Tickets are available in advance on line at Tickets Please and at the door while availability lasts.
For your added enjoyment the Wizard’s Café will have Fair Trade coffee, a selection of tea and cold beverages and an enticing array of sweet treats available before the performance and during intermission. The is a great opportunity to catch up with friends and neighbours or chat with the musicians.
