This July Main & Station is delighted to welcome back artist Sydney Lancaster and geologist John Waldron, and to introduce composer Scott Smallwood to Parrsboro.
The team are collaborating on a multidisciplinary project that will “explore both the limitlessness of the tide’s ebb and flow, and the limits of human capacity to comprehend time on that immense scale”.
This summer is a 2 week Research & Development Residency, to plan and develop a new site-specific sculptural installation responding to the tidal range in the Bay of Fundy. The goal is to scout potential locations for an installation, meet with local people (potential collaborators) and get to know the area. The team will also be learning about local materials and trying some experiments to see what might best be used for the work, a large-scale site-based sculptural installation which they hope to create and document in summer 2017.

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!

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
