Hunt the Hare CD Release Party

Hunt the Hare 1 - Brendan Quigley - Frank Callaghan - Kane Miller - Jonathan Berlingeri.jpg

Celtic group Hunt the Hare is gearing up for a CD Release Party to celebrate the completion of their first album, titled Cheer & Song.  The band is proud to share the fruits of their labour with fans on February 16, 2019 in the Bryan Jones Theatre at Lakefield College School starting at 7:00pm.  Tickets are $15 and available at huntthehare.ca.

Hunt the Hare is a local band composed of guitarist Brendan Quigley, singer / drummer Frank Callaghan, fiddler Kane Miller, and piper / mandolinist Jonathan Berlingeri.  Over the past 3 years, they have become well known locally for playing traditional and modern Celtic music at high-energy shows. They have played a wide variety of events throughout Peterborough City and County, including performances at Peterborough Pulse, The Norwood Fair, and various St. Patrick’s Day events as well as open jam sessions at Kingfisher Bay Resort.  Most recently, they helped the Peterborough Medical Brigade raise funds for their upcoming missions trip to Uganda at Brigade Aid 2019.

Cheer & Song is the result of a desire to capture the fun of a live Hunt the Hare show on a recording.  It includes traditional Celtic sets, waltzes, and Stan Rogers’ classic Northwest Passage for good measure.  CDs will be available for sale at the show.

For more information about the band, or to book for them an event, visit them online at huntthehare.ca.  You can also follow the band on Twitter at @huntthehare.

Classic Albums Live Performs Queen – A Night at the Opera

46443333_2152625944769084_365850347974950912_n.jpg

queen’s ‘a night at the opera’ was a
game changer for rock ’n’ roll
if you grew up in the 70s, this album
was everywhere
all of a sudden, long haired rockers were
singing along to operatic songs
with soaring arrangements
a far cry from foghat

queen became one of the world’s greatest
bands by working hard
they toured endlessly and in the studio –
they strived for perfection
and that’s our challenge
how do you learn perfection?
answer: by working hard

nick walsh rallied to sing this album
originally a rock singer, nick found his
theatre vibe singing the david bowie,
ziggy stardust album
now he’s immersed in the brilliance and
effortlessness of freddie mercury’s voice
alongside the vocals comes the challenge
of brian may’s overdubbed guitar sound
we’ve got a small army of guitarists to
cover the flash and fun

classic albums live loves a good challenge
queen provides just that.
we’re all familiar with “bohemian rhapsody”
and “you’re my best friend”
but it’s the deep tracks like “prophet song”
and “love of my life” that reveal
a profound depth of songwriting
we’re ready

founder and creative director

Whitehorse

47258855_1214390182048046_4488438517369667584_n.jpg

Ethereal folk. Space Cowboy twang. Psychedelic spaghetti western. Intergalactic blues grooves. Pop noir. Since their debut in 2011, Whitehorse has evolved from magnetic folk duo to full-blown rock band. In truth, Whitehorse is never fully either one or the other, but an ever-evolving creative partnership that challenges both artists to explore new instrumental and lyrical terrain with each project. Together, Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland’s searing Americana noir sensibility is distinguished by guitar wizardry (and instantly recognizable tone) and magnetic harmonies.

Now, the JUNO Award winning duo Whitehorse return to the early days of electric blues with The Northern South Vol. 2, the second instalment of a project that melds the grooves and melodies of the original selections with the band’s steamy, swampy, squalling approach. The Northern South Vol. 2, coming January 2019 on Six Shooter Records, deals 1950s blues bops, hellfire gospels and sexed-up cuts from Howlin’ Wolf, Willie Dixon, Jimmy Reed and more. The first single, “Who’s Been Talkin’” channels the cross-continent blues super sessions with spiny Wurlitzer, serpentine White Falcon, and, above all, a deep reverence for Howlin’ Wolf and his longtime guitar player Hubert Sumlin.

You can order tickets online.

Stealing Away Home: Archaeology and the Underground Railroad in Ontario

Announcement Smardz Frost rev.jpg

The Peterborough Chapter of theOntario Archaeological Society and The Peterborough Historical Society are pleased to announce a joint public presentation in recognition of Black History Month:

The presentation, by noted historian and archaeologist Dr.Karolyn Smardz Frost, will acknowledge and bring recognition to the history of Underground Railroad sites in Ontario. Her topic is "Stealing Away Home: Archaeology and the Underground Railroad in Ontario." This event will take place at the Lions Centre on Burnham Street on Tuesday February 26th at 7 pm.

Both an archaeologist and an historian, Karolyn Smardz Frost explores our nation's rich African Canadian heritage, and specializes in studying and teaching about Canada's role as the main terminus of the Underground Railroad. She is an adjunct professor at both Acadia and Dalhousie Universities, and is also an accomplished author of lively and intriguing narrative non-fiction. In 2007 Karolyn won the Governor General's Award forI've Got a Home in Glory Land: A Lost Tale of the Underground Railroad.

Karolyn's newest volume, Steal Away Home(HarperCollins Canada 2016) tells the story of Cecelia Jane Reynolds, who at the age of fifteen fled her Kentucky by way of the Cataract House hotel at Niagara Falls NY. Reaching Toronto she learned to write and began a correspondence with Fanny, the woman who had once owned her body, asking the price of her own family's freedom. Thus began a twenty-year correspondence between a freedom-seeker and her former mistress that has no parallel in the annals of American slavery.

The most exciting news yet is that Steal Away Home has been optioned for a five-part mini- series by Conquering

Lion Pictures, which produced the Book of Negroes for television!

Karolyn's work on this book was informed by her access to the archaeological site of Cecelia's 19th century home in Toronto. Infrastructure Ontario and Timmins Martelle Heritage Consultants uncovered the foundation on Centre Street during work on the massive project to excavate St. John's Ward before construction of the new provincial courthouse. Copies of Karolyn's book will be available for sale.

This presentation is part of the Peterborough Chapter’s monthly Public Speakers Series, conducted with the support of the City of Peterborough and the Trent University Archaeological Centre. Members of the public are invited. There is no charge. Light refreshments are served. For further information contact the chapter secretary, Dirk Verhulst, at dverhulst@cogeco.ca.

3rd Annual International Women’s Day Conference

iwdptbo-logo-2018.jpg

Thirteen Moons Wellness is bringing together local women for the International Women’s Day (IWD) Conference on Friday, March 8, 2019. This event is a development and networking opportunity for participants to learn from an engaging collection of distinguished guest speakers and workshops as they define some of the challenges, obstacles and solutions to advance gender equality. It’s also a unique opportunity to share and advance knowledge and empower participants to strengthen outcomes for women, their families, their communities and the economy.

This year’s conference theme is “Connecting women, inspiring action” and will allow women to create meaningful connections with each other, to engage in learning opportunities to reach their personal and professional goals, and to feel inspired and empowered to spread awareness and to take positive action towards gender equity.

Speaker lineup features Rebecca Thomas, Mi’kmaw poet, scholar and activist; and Deborah Kimmett, comedian, speaker, author, instructor and director.

Attendees will also get to participate in two 75-minute workshops from six available sessions in between speaker presentations:

“The success of the 2017 and 2018 International Women’s Day Conferences affirms the relevance of a full-day event that supports women of all ages and backgrounds in our community,” says Louise Racine, IWD conference founder and committee chair. “The conference program is designed with the intention that the speakers and workshops equip attendees with the skills, knowledge and connections to carry on with hope and determination. While we may not see the positive changes we aspire to immediately, especially during our current political climate, it’s important for women to remain diligent and steadfast for the generations to come.”

Event details:

  • What: International Women’s Day Conference, hosted by Thirteen Moons Wellness

  • Where: Ashburnham Reception Centre, 840 Armour Road, Peterborough

  • When: Friday, March 8, 2019, 8:00 a.m.  ̶   4:30 p.m.

  • Tickets are available for $145 + HST. Includes the two keynote speakers, two 75-minute workshop sessions, lunch, and refreshments during the conference.

A portion of net proceeds from the IWD conference will be donated to the 2019 Judy Heffernan Award. Louise Racine won this award in 2016 and used the monetary award to start the first full-day International Women’s Day conference in Peterborough in March 2017. Last year, a portion of proceeds went to support Habitat for Humanity, Alternatives Community Services, and a girls’ soccer program.

Inviting Resilience Conference

image1.jpeg

Inviting Resilience is the overarching theme of a national conference to be hosted by Trent University; Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre; and The Mane Intent Inc. on May 21 & May 22, 2019 at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario. The Inviting Resilience Conference will combine academic and experiential learning to provide meaningful opportunities in building community capacity for the newest evidence-based practices; community-driven, multi-sectoral initiatives; and trauma-informed programming focused on building resilience in youth and adults impacted by childhood trauma and sexual violence over the lifespan.

Dr. Kateryna (Katia) Keefer will Chair the Inviting Resilience conference. Dr. Keefer is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Psychology at Trent University and the research lead for Building Internal Resilience Through Horses. Her program of research is focused on the developmental dynamics and applications of socioemotional competencies in the promotion of wellness and resilience across the lifespan. As an emerging scholar, Dr. Keefer has co-authored over 30 journal articles and book chapters on the topics of emotional intelligence, resilience, mental health, and psychological assessment; delivered numerous invited talks and conference presentations on these topics; and co-edited the Springer book of Emotional Intelligence in Education.

Dr. Keefer is the opening plenary keynote scheduled at 8:45 a.m. on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. Her presentation themed Resourceful Communities, Resilient Youth will focus on the developmental dynamics and applications of socioemotional competencies in the promotion of wellness and resilience across the lifespan. She will also share preliminary research results from Building Internal Resilience Through Horses.

Dr. Sandrina de Finney is the Associate Professor and Graduate Advisor, School of Child and Youth Care, at the University of Victoria. Dr. de Finney is an associate professor whose primary focus of scholarship is Indigenous and minoritized populations, particularly youth in care and girls/young women. Drawing on over two decades of experience as a community activist, researcher, trainer and youth worker, Dr. Sandrina’s academic work documents the impact of (neo)colonial practices and policies and how racialized communities negotiate and disrupt their effects. Her scholarship is rooted in participatory, action-oriented, and arts-based methods and draws on Indigenous, queer, anti-racist, anti/postcolonial and transnational feminist theories and perspectives.

The theme of Dr. de Finney’s keynote scheduled for Wednesday, May 22 at 8:45 a.m. is: Indigenous Resurgence as Resilience: Promising Pathways for Resilience and Healing in Indigenous Contexts. In this presentation, Dr. de Finney will explore the issues of trauma, resilience, healing and reconciliation can be reconsidered through Indigenous lens. This conceptual shift takes Indigenous resilience out of its individualized psycho-social definition and locates it instead in relationship with ancestors, lands, kinship, and self-determination.

The Climate Horizon: A Public Lecture by Gwynne Dyer

49771610_2110776108968509_6121727203223797760_o.jpg

Gwynne Dyer, Canadian author, journalist, columnist, broadcaster, and lecturer, will address one of today’s most urgent global issues – climate change.

Climate change is a reality. Dwindling resources, massive population shifts, natural disasters, spreading epidemics, drought, rising sea levels, plummeting agricultural yields, crashing economies, political extremism – are some of the expected consequences in the decades ahead. Climate change will have exponential influences on our military, politics, environment, social systems and economy, but with an unprecedented level of global cooperation, Dyer believes there might be a way through it.

On Monday, February 11, 2019, Dr. Dyer will be travelling from London, UK to present his lecture at Trent University. This presentation will be followed by a question and answer period to delve more deeply into what this global challenge means for us locally. This event is free to attend, and all Trent students, staff, faculty, and Peterborough Community members are welcome to attend.

Dr. Dyer has worked as a freelance journalist, columnist, broadcaster and lecturer on international affairs for more than 20 years, but he was originally trained as a historian. He received degrees from Canadian, American and British universities, finishing with a Ph.D. in Military and Middle Eastern History from the University of London. Dr. Dyer lives in London. In 2010, he was made an officer of the Order of Canada.

Presented by the TCSA, Gzowski College, and Otonabee College

Carpentry For Women

48383763_1616170535149343_3287929144490328064_o.jpg

Have you ever wanted to tackle a carpentry project but don’t know quite where to start? Are you looking to gain more confidence with power tools and workshop techniques?

The Carpentry for Women workshop creates a friendly, inviting space for women who would like to learn the basics of carpentry. In the comfort of a women-only space, experienced carpenters Jen Feigin and Deirdre McGahern will introduce you to the world of measuring, marking and layout, hand and power tools.

Over two days, you will gain confidence in basic carpentry as you work on a take-home project. There will be plenty of time to practice with tools and to become familiar with the terminology. You’ll learn about tool safety, how to choose and buy tools, selecting and purchasing materials for projects, making sketches for projects and choosing non-toxic, healthy finishes.

Small group learning affords lots of time to develop skills and confidence, ask questions and discuss ideas.

Each participant will construct and bring home a pair of unique folding saw horses that can be used as a work platform for future projects or as a base for a desk!

Tamales & Tortillas Masterclass

49896587_10161363584885261_2000443698864717824_o.jpg

Join us to celebrate Candlemas in our hands-on Tamales & Tortillas Masterclass

February 2nd falls exactly forty days after Christmas. In Mexico Día de la Candelaria (Candlemas) is a follow-up to the festivities of "Three Kings Day" on January 6th, when children receive gifts and families and friends gather together to eat Rosca de Reyes, a special sweet bread with figurines of a baby (representing the Child Jesus) hidden inside. The person (or people) who received the figurines on Three Kings Day are supposed to host the party on Candlemas Day. Tamales are the food of choice.

A tamal consists of a corn-meal dough and some type of filling that is wrapped in either corn husk or banana leaf, and steamed. This is a favorite food for the Day of the Dead season, as well as many other holidays. The word tamal comes from the Aztec word tamalli which means "wrapped." This is one of the most ancient foods and was consumed in Mesoamerica possibly as far back as 5000 B.C.

Your $55 ticket includes:

- Welcoming snack

- Hands-On: Mole or veggie tamales (Let us knos when booking)

- Hands-On: Make your own tortillas from scratch!

- Wine sampling

BYO container to take home your delicious creations!
