Slimmon, Fireweed appearing Oct. 22

EDEN MILLS - Music at the Hall here offers Tannis Slimmon and Fireweed to share the stage at the community hall on Oct. 22.

Slimmon grew up in a musical family on a farm in the prairies of western Canada. In 1980 she moved to Guelph and became known on the Canadian music scene as a member of the critically acclaimed Bird Sisters. After working with numerous other bands including Big Smoke, Crows Feet and Benji, Slimmon’s solo career was launched in 2001 with the release of Oak Lake. A third album is expected this winter.

She was named the Contemporary Vocalist of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards in 2008. She will be joined by Lewis Melville.

Fireweed is a trio from Kingston: Jamie Campbell, Gary William Rasberry and Rob Unger. Voice play, guitar work and a mutual love of all things acoustic fire the songs they write and perform.

Fireweed has performed at Blues Skies Music Festival, the Ottawa Folk Festival, Mariposa, Hillside Music Festival, and the Amherst Island Folk Festival. After a hiatus in which various members lived in other countries, they have reconnected and picked up where they left off

This concert is a fund-raiser for the Eden Mills Millpond Conservation Association. The show is Oct. 22 at 7:30pm with the doors opening at 7pm at 108 York St. There will be Cash Bar with beer and wine

Tickets $20 and can be purchased at the door or in advance at The Bookshelf, Quebec Street, Guelph 519-821-3311 or from Kit Bresnahan, 519-856-1188 or
