And if, like me, you have to (gasp) miss that one, here's another chance to get your toes tapping without driving halfway across the country: the Kenosee Lake Kitchen Party! Concerts every evening for a week! Michele Amy is organizing a camp for students of guitar, fiddle and piano, and while we've got all those fine instructors here - of course they'll play for us. For everyone! I've copied her announcement below. The location (Kenosee Boys' and Girls' camp) is out at the west end of the lake (with the Mother Theresa Centre); follow the main road west and then turn south where it says "Group Camps" or something like that. Then watch for the camp sign.
As a student, I'll be in the final show (gulp) so come clap along for me! I dare ya to try to make me laugh . . .Just some information about a concert series in the Park that you might be interested in. We'd love for you to come and join us, and to help us spread the word.The Kenosee Lake Kitchen Party is presenting a concert series featuring renowned musicians between August 14 - 18, 2006 at the Kenosee Boys' and Girls' camp at 7pm.Cost is $5 for non-camp participants, and spectators should bring a lawnchair.Children under 12 are free.Concerts will be followed by a jam session, and spectators are welcome to bring instruments and join in as they pleaseThe concert lineup is as follows:Monday, August 14 at 7pm: J.J.
