Turkey and Train Rides this Thanksgiving

11:00am – 3:00pm
What goes better with turkey than train rides? The Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario is serving up a Thanksgiving weekend like no other! Bring your friends and your out-of-town relatives for a special Thanksgiving train ride
Rides will take place Saturday October 8th and Sunday October 9th from 11 am to 3 pm. Climb aboard a 1940s caboose to discover what it’s like to be pulled by a first-generation diesel engine. A return trip down the track is $5 for 7 years or older, $3 for children 3-6 years & 2 and under ride free!
The museum will be open 10 am to 5 pm each day and admission to the museum is free Saturday and Sunday. The museum will be open Monday October 10th and will close for the season Tuesday October 11th.
This will also be your last chance this season to view our new exhibit: Lost Stations of Eastern Ontario.
This exciting exhibition details the fated history of the railways and their stations in Eastern Ontario as well as the important role that these stations played in the surrounding communities. Like many communities along the line, the railway was an integral part of life. Today much of what remains of the fated railway lines are of the lonely stations peeking out the overgrown rural countryside.
We invite you to come out to the museum on Thanksgiving weekend for some family fun!

Trad Song Session at The Barley Mow

2:00pm – 4:00pm
The session follows the tradition of people gathering in a local pub to sing and play for their own pleasure. We emphasize simple traditional songs with choruses so that others can join in – work songs, sea shanties, old gospel tunes and the like – most often unaccompanied . The stronger singers lead and sing the verses and everyone joins in on the choruses.
To lead a song, you should pretty much know it by heart and the first couple of rounds are reserved for those who have prepared a chorus song. In later rounds, if there is time, we will hear the occasional ballad or other solo piece. Most of the songs come from the British Isles and North America but we welcome songs from other traditions as well contemporary classics that follow the traditional idiom.
For more information about the Trad Song session, including a brief discussion of what makes a song “traditional”, see shantyman.ca/TradSing or call David 613-355-5552.

Brea Lawrenson at Golden Arrow

9:00pm
“Her pure, powerful, country-tinged voice is full of soul. With just her and her guitar, she really played with the dynamics of the songs – increasing or decreasing her overall volume to create drama. Her repertoire featured a healthy dose of her original songs along with some tunes by Fleetwood Mac, KT Tunstall, and Cam. Overall, I would say that her solo performance had a much more ‘americana’ sound than pure country.” — Rob Riendeau, Pub Crawling, TheHumm, Oct 2015.

FoSH: Hat Fitz & Cara w/Brock Zeman at ECOTAY Education Centre

3:00pm
Part of the Festival of Small Halls.
Hat Fitz and Cara can in no way be mistaken for a dainty duo. They have been known as festival favourites throughout Canada, Australia, Europe, and the UK, where it has been said they pack more energy into one song than most have in an entire career. This dynamic two piece band are a unique combination that have skilfully combined their hill style Gospel blues with old timey flavourings.
Stripped down to just voices, guitar and vintage drums, Hat Fitz and Cara embellish impeccable rootsy originals with powerful and soulful vocals reminiscent of a time once forgotten. It is not just a live show of their repertoire they share, but a personal invitation into the parody of their lives on the road together, that often has their audiences in tears of Euphoria.
Over the course of 11 albums, Ottawa-area singer songwriter Brock Zeman has built a reputation as a writer of great depth and passion through his thoughtful, often personal songs. Widely regarded as one of Canada’s most prolific songwriters and best-kept secrets, his 2015 release Pulling Your Sword Out of the Devil’s Back was a semifinalist in the International Songwriting Competition and came in second in the The Unsigned Only Competition in 2015.

Trad Song Session at The Barley Mow

2:00pm – 4:00pm
The session follows the tradition of people gathering in a local pub to sing and play for their own pleasure. We emphasize simple traditional songs with choruses so that others can join in – work songs, sea shanties, old gospel tunes and the like – most often unaccompanied . The stronger singers lead and sing the verses and everyone joins in on the choruses.
To lead a song, you should pretty much know it by heart and the first couple of rounds are reserved for those who have prepared a chorus song. In later rounds, if there is time, we will hear the occasional ballad or other solo piece. Most of the songs come from the British Isles and North America but we welcome songs from other traditions as well contemporary classics that follow the traditional idiom.
For more information about the Trad Song session, including a brief discussion of what makes a song “traditional”, see shantyman.ca/TradSing or call David 613-355-5552.

Brea Lawrenson at Golden Arrow

9:00pm
“Her pure, powerful, country-tinged voice is full of soul. With just her and her guitar, she really played with the dynamics of the songs – increasing or decreasing her overall volume to create drama. Her repertoire featured a healthy dose of her original songs along with some tunes by Fleetwood Mac, KT Tunstall, and Cam. Overall, I would say that her solo performance had a much more ‘americana’ sound than pure country.” — Rob Riendeau, Pub Crawling, TheHumm, Oct 2015.

FoSH: Hat Fitz & Cara w/Brock Zeman at ECOTAY Education Centre

3:00pm
Part of the Festival of Small Halls.
Hat Fitz and Cara can in no way be mistaken for a dainty duo. They have been known as festival favourites throughout Canada, Australia, Europe, and the UK, where it has been said they pack more energy into one song than most have in an entire career. This dynamic two piece band are a unique combination that have skilfully combined their hill style Gospel blues with old timey flavourings.
Stripped down to just voices, guitar and vintage drums, Hat Fitz and Cara embellish impeccable rootsy originals with powerful and soulful vocals reminiscent of a time once forgotten. It is not just a live show of their repertoire they share, but a personal invitation into the parody of their lives on the road together, that often has their audiences in tears of Euphoria.
Over the course of 11 albums, Ottawa-area singer songwriter Brock Zeman has built a reputation as a writer of great depth and passion through his thoughtful, often personal songs.
