Ottawa’s Anne Lewis is set to bring her passion, poise and powerful interpretations of jazz classics and original songs to the JazzNhouse concert series.
A versatile singer with a warm, deliberate intonation, Anne wraps her voice around every note and brings to the listener a rich, meaningful delivery of the songs she sings. Anne has performed at the TD Ottawa and Montreal Jazz Festivals; headlined at concerts at the National Arts Centre (NAC), Centrepointe and Great Canadian Theatres in Ottawa. She performs regularly at jazz venues and private functions throughout the Ottawa region.
The Anne Lewis Quartet has carefully selected songs that will inspire love, laughter and reflections of life.

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25

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.

The Mississippi Mills Public Library’s Seed Library is offering a workshop for anyone who wants to learn how to save their own vegetable and flower seeds. Local grower and seed expert Telsing Andrews will demonstrate how to save the easiest of seeds: lettuce, tomatoes, beans and peas. Telsing will discuss pollination, the life cycle of plants, tips and tricks for winnowing and threshing seeds, and the best way to store seeds. It’s a challenge to learn how to save seeds from our own gardens, but it’s fun!
The workshop is perfect for beginner seed savers, and a refresher for all who save seeds.

“Ali grew up in the Lanark Highlands on an off-grid farm. She was drawn to music at a young age, and with help and encouragement from her family she began writing songs (many, many songs!). Over the years, Ali has developed a musical style all her own. She captivates audiences with her unique voice and lyrics about life, love and rural Canadian living. She has played coffee houses, basements, attics, and campfires, but her favourite places to play are rural venues…” — Rob Riendeau, Pub Crawling, TheHumm.
These days the Ali McCormick show can be seen in solo or duo formation, often backed by Matty McKechnie (musical alias GRAVEN) on lead guitar.
