Heritage North debuts new musical showcase

The Hazel Hopkins Gallery was standing room only Aug. 17 for the Heritage North Museum’s first ever music matinee.

This show, dubbed “Music at the Museum,” featured a trio of acts that all brought something unique to the table.

Museum summer student Isabel Carter pulled double duty by performing a number of songs with her ukulele and violin.

Administration assistant Amy Caldwell ran through a combination of rock covers by Blue Rodeo and the Barenaked Ladies.

The duo of Art and Al Starling treated the crowd to their acoustic harmony by covering songs like “Wondering Where the Lions Are” by Bruce Cockburn.

Finally, Caldwell and Carter closed out the show with a rendition of “Amazing Grace” to honour the memory of longtime museum board member Grace Bindle, who passed away back in late July after a two-year battle with cancer.

While this inaugural event was free to attend, Caldwell and museum executive director Tanna Tenycke originally came up with the idea for “Music at the Museum” as a way to potentially raise money for the local non-profit in the future.
