Parrsboro Film Festival & Nonesuch After Hours Parties

The 5th Annual Parrsboro Film Festival begins Friday, 23 October and runs until Sunday, 25 October. All films are screened at The Hall (www.thehall.ca), which has a 16-foot retractable screen, comfortable theatre seating and surround sound. The festival celebrates Atlantic Canadian with an original lineup of films, filmmakers, music, and more. Visit the festival website to see the program http://www.parrsborofilmfestival.com/

For the second year, Main & Station collaborates with PFF to host a Nonesuch After Hours portion of the festivities on both Friday and Saturday evenings from the time the screenings at The Hall finish (around 11pm) until.

Last year we showed more films but this year we are mixing it up a little with some live music, dancing, and drawing. The Wazoo Blues Band will be here both nights and the floor will be cleared for dancing!

Also, October is The Big Draw, an international festival that is part of the Campaign for Drawing. All over the world during the month of October there are many events that encourage drawing activities.   You can learn more about the Big Draw and the Campaign for Drawing at:  http://www.thebigdraw.org/the-big-draw  In celebration of the Big Draw, during the After Hours events we will provide drawing materials onsite for those who wish to draw… why not sketch the band or the dancers, or, since this year’s theme is Every Drawing Tells A Story, why not draw something inspired by a film you just watched!

So come on by the Nonesuch Café (in Parrsboro’s old Post Office) on Friday 23 October and Saturday 24 October beginning at 11pm and be a Night Owl for a change!

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
