Westben House Concert with Ian Foster

Ian Foster, native of Newfoundland, Canada, is a storyteller. That music is the way he tells those stories only makes the telling richer still. Modern folk wrapped in Canadiana, Ian’s writing style belies a love of history, home and the humble tale. CBC’s Bob Mersereau described him as being “a fine example of what a 21st century folk performer should be doing.”Often likened to Canadian songwriting icon Bruce Cockburn in both writing and guitar style, and artists like Daniel Lanois for his atmospheric approach to sound, Ian’s music has been described as thoughtful, introspective, cinematic, hopeful, atmospheric, and cathartic by critics alike

“The Rebel of Hungerford”

The year 1837 was not a happy time in Upper Canada. The young colony was going through serious growing pains that eventually erupted in open Rebellion. Pierre Lesage was one of the early settlers caught in the middle of the turmoil. Arrested for treason, he was eventually acquitted with the help of a young lawyer by the name of John A. MacDonald. Pierre’s great-great-great grandson, Mark Lesage, presents a dramatic retelling of the circumstances surrounding these events and the times in which they occurred with warmth, humour and all the political prejudices of the age. Shows at 2 pm and 7:30 pm. Tickets $15 from QAC or call (613) 403-7329.

Opening Night of “A Murder Is Announced” – Belleville Theatre Guild

Join us for one of Agatha Christie's finest mysteries. Amateur detective Miss Marple reads an advertisement in the local paper announcing that a murder will occur at a specific time and place. Shocking! The usual suspects (the batty, the beautiful, and the brawny) are no match for the pure genius of our heroine. With deadly aim and quiet perseverance, she peels away the layers of deception. Directed by Lise Lindenberg, the play runs from October 11 to 27 at the Pinnacle Playhouse at 8:00pm on select evenings and 2:00pm on Sundays. Adults $20, Seniors $18, Students $10.
