October Basement Cafe concert to feature four female artists

HARRISTON – The next show in the Minto Arts Council’s Basement Café concert series will feature four female artists.

Minto native Emily MacRobbie will perform a set, accompanied by former Harriston resident Brenda Manderson.

Windsor singer-songerwriter Meggi Faye and Guelph resident Mikalyn Hay will also perform at the show.

The concert will be held in the basement of the Harriston library on Oct. 22, beginning at 8 pm.

Tickets to show cost $25. Organizers note no alcohol will be served.

MacRobbie (Ziegler) has been entertaining with her singing for the past 30 years. She plans to perform some of her favourite female country ballads for the Basement Café audience.

A veteran musician, Brenda Manderson has been a member of a number of bands, most recently The Pleats and Boyd’s Orchestra. She is a multi-instrumentalist and plays guitar, flute, ukulele, and keyboard.

Faye began writing and singing songs with her guitar at age 15. With influences like Kathleen Edwards and Jenn Grant, her voice captivates her listeners. 

“Her songs offer solace to wounded hearts and peace to weary minds; they’re soul medicine,” organizers state.

“Hay’s signature alt-pop stylings defy her age and blur lines between genres and eras,” organizers state. 

“Between the depth of her voice, substance of her songwriting, and seemingly endless list of achievements. One would swear the young artist has been in the game for decades.”
