Fri, Feb 23rd, 8-10pm, Concert – Roxeen & Dalrymple – Nova Scotia Bluegrass & Gospel – fiddle/mandolin

Nova Scotia’s Roxeen & Dalrymple is a classic guitar and mandolin vocal duet, performing in the traditional styles of bluegrass, country and gospel music.  Originally teamed together 25 years ago as band mates of the legendary Spinney Brothers, a life of separate musical paths has brought them back together, performing the music they cherish.

Individually the duo consists of Roxeen Roberts and Gary Dalrymple.  Collectively they are highly respected, veteran musicians with impressive musical resumes.  They are multiple East Coast Music Awards (ECMAs) nominees, Maritime Gospel Music awards (MGMA) nominees, and have won numerous Eastern Canadian Bluegrass Music Awards (ECBMAs).  They have toured coast to coast in Canada and the United States and now, after careers of extensive travel and performing and recording, the duo couldn’t be more excited as to where they have landed musically.

As Roxeen Roberts recently noted, “we honestly love the classic sounds of traditional bluegrass, country and gospel music”.   Gary Dalrymple stated, “we both grew up on the sounds of Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton etc, you know, the good stuff.  It is this style of music that we are so excited to be performing.  Our show includes many of the standards, however, expect to hear some of our own material, songs of course, that are heavily influenced by the music we were raised on”.

Wed, Feb 28th, 7-9pm, Talk – Gardening for Life, the Biodynamic Way with Gary & Louis Swann, Leda Farm

"The most important thing you can do for your health and the health of the planet is to eat locally grown Biodynamic food."

Learn to grow your own.  Biodynamic Agriculture is similar to Organic Agriculture in that is uses no chemical fertilizers or toxins.  Biodynamics differs from Organics in that it seeks to understand and utilizes the forces from Cosmos which influence plant growth.  It uses Planting and sowing calendars to determine the best times to sow and work with plants.  Secondly it conditions the soil to more readily accept the Cosmic forces with Biodynamic sprays and Biodynamic compost made by using 6 medicinal herbs in small quantities.  This results is high quality in nutrition, flavor, and taste food.   " Biodynamic Agriculture Health Care for the Earth and Humanity."  Finally, Biodynamic Farms strive to be self contained, all the fertility comes from within the farm.  A morally sound approach to our future food supply.

The public is welcome to an introduction on Biodynamic Gardening.  Families welcome.  Doors open 6pm.

Admission by donation to defray hosting costs are gratefully accepted.   https://www.facebook.com/events/1984727638410055/
