NASSAGAWEYA – Jane Siberry and James Gordon are performing a concert at Glencairn Farm in Nassagaweya on June 23.
Beginning at 2pm the summer afternoon concert will be accompanied by champagne and Everton Culinary Academy chef, Dale McCarthy’s high tea and strawberry shortcake.
The concert is a musical reunion for the two artists who met at the University of Guelph in the early 1970s.
They shared the early days of their writing and performing careers and set off on separate paths to transform life into song with their eyes on integrity and bursting with creativity.
Siberry has been travelling the world from living room salon to festival stage; Gordon continued writing and singing throughout Canada and the world, all while sitting as a Guelph councillor.
Hundreds of songs, dozens of albums, countless tours and decades later the duo will perform together, welcoming the audience to share the encounter.
This event is another in the series of fundraisers to support the Concerned Residents Coalition (CRC), currently in an Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) hearing on the James Dick Construction Ltd. “Hidden Quarry” proposed for land near Rockwood.
The event will take place on June 23. The garden opens at 2pm with English tea and the concert begins at 3pm.
The event will take place at 13233 5th Line Nassagaweya which is 2.5 kilometres south of Highway 7 between Rockwood and Acton.
Tickets will be sold in advance for $85 and are available online at www.hiddenquarry.ca/concert
