Prairie Songstress Belle Plaine Announces

Crustacean Elation Maritimes Tour

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – May 22 2015 (Regina, SK) – Belle Plaine and her longtime collaborators Jeremy Sauer and Elizabeth Curry will take their classic country, swing and folk music performance on the road at the end of May for a month-long, 22-show tour to urban and rural communities in the Maritimes. The trio toured parts of the region last year and were enamored with the people, the culture, and the crustaceans. They want to return to play music, share the Saskatchewan culture and of course to eat a lot of fresh in-season lobster and mussels. Now they are excited to announce their tour, including their first-time visit to New Brunswick. The show is for audiences who enjoy artists such as Emmylou Harris, Patsy Cline, Jill Barber & Rose Cousins.

“Why do I love the Maritimes? It’s the people. They’re lovely. There’s some innate understanding between prairie and maritime folk. It’s a strange connection that I can’t put my finger on. I don’t know that I need to comprehend it, I just love that I feel it.” – Belle Plaine

Exhibition: Drawing out Loud – Faces of Lyme Disease

Donna Jacobs is a multimedia & graphic artist, a ceramicist, and poet.  She will be in Parrsboro for a week in July to teach a charcoal workshop and hold an exhibition of her work.

drawing-out-loud-exhibit-vernissage-1For over a year Donna has being drawing sketches that encompass emotions both she and her daughter Bronwyn were experiencing, but could not express in words, as Lyme disease ravaged Bronwyn’s body with damage to her stomach, gallbladder and digestive tract. Each day Donna would put a new sketch up on the wall of the hospital room. What they discovered was that the sketches became a focus and broke down some barriers between the health care professionals and Bronwyn. They would discuss the sketches and the atmosphere became more human. This was to her benefit.

Don’t miss the exhibit of these sketches on display in Main & Station’s secondfloor gallery this July. The exhibit will open with a soirée on July 15th at 5pm and will remain on display until July 24th, 2015. Come to the opening to see the work, meet Donna, and learn more about Lyme Disease and how to prevent it.

"Sacred Tremors" Indiana Version, May 2015, Mark Beebe

 

You can meet Mark and Julia at their Artists’ Talk on Friday June 12th at 10:30 am in the Nonesuch Café.

Julia will also be giving two Nonesuch Coffee Talks on Tuesday, June 23rd, Lao Tzu at the Gate, and on Tuesday, June 30th, Talismans of the everyday.

On June 20th and 21st, Julia will be offering a Meditative Collage Workshop (or all mixed up and that’s just fine). For details and to register, see here… http://hmsnonesuch.com/workshops-seminars-conferences/learn/all-mixed-up/

Be sure to look for both Mark & Julia at our Tuesday Poetry Nights throughout the month of June and note that Julia will be our featured poet on Tuesday, June 23rd so come on down for that and also keep an eye out for Mark in and around town as you may just find him somewhere painting up a storm.

And finally, definitely don’t miss the exhibit of their work opening June 25th at 5 pm.

To give you a taste of her poetry, here is a sample Julia tells me is ‘a tad rough’. It is from a series Julia is working on around Jane Schoolcraft’s story (and her family’s). Her Ojibwe name  was Obabaamwewe-giizhigokwe (in modern spelling) Continue reading
