CENTRE WELLINGTON – Live performances are coming back to the Fergus Grand Theatre.
In addition to welcoming back community groups, touring rentals, and emerging local artists, the theatre is also able to mount a small presenting series entitled Healing, Health, and Hope with shows that will lift your spirits and put a smile on your face.
“We’re back, we’re safe, and we can’t wait to welcome you to the Fergus Grand Theatre once again.” said theatre coordinator Eric Goudie.
“Our presenting series title is quite fitting after the past 18 months we have had. If we can put a smile on your face, we have brought theatre back to life in our community.”
Here’s the lineup:
– Oct. 29 – Red Dirt Skinners. Described by Roots Music Canada as “The Pink Floyd of Folk Music” the multi award winning Red Dirt Skinners comfortably blend exceptional, almost telepathic, harmonies with world class musicianship.
– Jan. 30 – Mike Stevens, an award-winning harmonica player, continues to expand the paradigms of harmonica, balancing tradition with cutting-edge innovation.
– March 30 – The presenting series concludes with Six String Nation. This show is about the creation of a guitar called Voyageur, made from 64 different pieces of material, each with a story to tell, from every province and territory of Canada. Part of this event will include a performance by local musicians from the Adrian Jones Music School, who will take to the stage to play Voyageur, helping to write the next chapter in its history.
Health and safety protocols will be in effect for all events, and proof of vaccination will be required for admission.
Single tickets for all shows in the presenting series are $35 each, and available in the box office, by phone at 519-787-1981, or online at www.fergusgrandtheatre.ca.
