This Saturday! Anne Walker! In Concert!
We're thrilled to remind you that this Saturday, November 1, we have Anne Walker bringing her docu-musical, The Coulson Women's Institute, to West Hill. Singer/songwriter Anne Walker returns to her roots with a multi-media presentation. Through the lens of the Women’s Institute, this docu-musical uses original songs, stories, vintage photographs, and historical documents, to trace the changing way of life in a rural Ontario village in the twentieth century.
Walker, whose familial roots run generations deep in the village of Coulson, celebrates and preserves the stories of a rural way of life that is disappearing. Walker has been able to capture the spirit and vernacular of the community. Here is history made relevant as she gathers up the characters, customs and culture of “old Oro” and weaves them into a new cloth with which to wrap our twenty-first century selves. Walker’s personal connections to the community and to the women of the WI-- including her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother-- make this performance a moving and intimate tribute. “The Coulson Women’s Institute” is a loving and deeply human historical document.
We're delighted to be welcoming Anne on Saturday, November 1, at 7:30 p.m. Our building is wheelchair accessible, nut-free, and we strive to be scent free as well. We have a large parking lot, but we are also accessible by TTC via the 86 bus from Kennedy Station.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the door or in advance if you prefer.
