Ganaraskals present Musical ABCs May 20
By Cecilia Nasmith, Northumberland Today
PORT HOPE - Following a sold-out first annual concert last year, the Ganaraska Chordsmen are pleased to present a second annual concert May 20 called Musical ABCs.
That would be A for a cappella (which is the musical style of those barbershop harmonies the group produces), B for banjo (the instrument on which Jamie MacPherson of guest act Side by Side is a champion) and C for comedy (provided by the Toronto-based group The Aristocrats).
Meeting weekly to offer local men an opportunity to share the joy and fellowship of a cappella harmonies, the Ganaraskals (as they call themselves) perform regularly at other concerts and events — notably, at the opening ceremonies for the recent Ontario 55+ Winter Games that were hosted in Northumberland.
On May 20, they are pleased to share the stage with two amazing guest acts.
