Fort Edmonton Park, 7000 143 Street, Edmonton. Sunday, August 27, 1:00-3:00

We’re happy be asked back to Fort Edmonton again this summer. Last year (2016) we had several excellent days in the park traveling through time and playing repertoire from the appropriate era. Also, we had ice cream. You can’t beat that. Repertoire Lists 11, 12, 13, and 14.

We had a great time last summer visiting Seba Beach and playing at the market. Join us again this year! We usually meet for a potluck lunch and some social music afterward — sign up for more details.


Ukrainian Heritage Village, Sunday, September 10, 2-3:30.  East of Edmonton

We’ve been invited to return again this summer by our friends at the Ukrainian Heritage Village. Last summer’s performance was on a cold and rainy day, but the happy people and hot borscht kept us smiling!
