Lowville sign - orange aThe good folks in Lowville know that the winter is going to come to an end – they are planning for their annual Lowville festival that has survived long enough to turn into something that will grow and add to the entertainment event during the summer months.

They appear to have gotten into the practice of holding an event on St. Patrick’s Day or close to for a fun evening and a fund raiser for the Festival event.

That will take place Friday evening, March 15th at Lowville United Church on Guelph Line.

This year, the Lowville Major Seventh Band, a Celtic-inflected ensemble led by Festival board member D’Arcy McCallum, which features a number of musicians who hail from Lowville and environs, will serve as hosts for the evening. The emcees for the evening are Festival Co-Artistic Directors Robert Missen and Lorretta Bailey.

Special Guests include Power Play, a dynamic Hamilton -Burlington duo featuring accordionist Charles Cozens and oboist Colin Maier. Both are members of the world-renowned Quartetto Gelato; Stuart Laughton, the multitalented Burlington singer-musician who was a founding member of the Canadian Brass; and Hamilton pianist Michael Mulrooney, acclaimed across Canada as a musical theatre music director, who serves as Music Director at Burlington’s Tansley United Church. He will be accompanying a couple of stellar students from the Sheridan College Musical Theatre Program.

Refreshments, which are always a huge contributor the evening’s success, will be provided by members of Lowville United Church.

The 2019 Lowville Festival will take place on the weekend of June 21-23 in locations throughout Lowville.

    Many thanks, as always,for your stalwart support for our efforts. Just one small but strange glitch. You mentioned that concert is happening on November 15th. I know it’s been s grueling winter, but let’s not regress too much! The date is Friday March 15th.

    Editor’s note:
    The error has been corrected – we used the incorrect November mention in one part of the story and the correct March mention else where in the article.

    That’s what happens when you publish at 4 in the morning.
