Hike Haliburton Starts Thursday September 18th, 2014

hiking_smallThe fabulous Hike Haliburton event is nearly upon us! There are hikes for every interest and fitness level .. all of them guided to ensure your enjoyment and safety. There are a total of about 70 hikes over 4 days and 4 amazing events to entertain you are held during this period as well. A snapshot of the program is appended below but full details about the Hiking Festival and registration links are available by clicking here. 

Event tickets can be purchased on MadeInHaliburton.ca. Buy event tickets separtatley for each event or save by buying an all access pass for a reduced amount. The events are:

Blast Off BBQ: Help us kick start the Hike Haliburton Festival with a tasty barbeque and a concert showcasing talented local musicians – Sheri Hawkins and The Tuba Divers.  This is also an opportunity to register for the guided hikes you wish to participate in, shop for some gear, and tour the Minden Hills Cultural Centre.

James Keeleghan in Concert — A Juno award winning performer — James has carried international acclaim for his songwriting and performances, and has taken main stage at some of the most prestigious festivals in the U.S., England, Australia, Denmark and Hong Kong. At home in Canada, he’s a Juno award-winner (and three-time Juno nominee) who’s grown from a popular coffeehouse act in Calgary to a festival and concert hall favourite. Mr. Keelaghan has an uncanny knack for finding incredible stories and turning them into finely crafted songs. A commanding performer, he develops an intimate rapport with audiences through his stories and sense of humour, and then leaves them spellbound with passionate renditions of songs that touch on universal emotions and relate historical events to the present. 

Betty and the Bobs in Concert: Betty and the Bobs is a collaboration of extraordinary musicians who are returning to Haliburton Highlands for an evening of fun and great performances. Katherine Wheatley, Suzie Vinnick, Wendell Ferguson, Soozi Changer, David Woodhead, David Matheson and Rich Greenspoon will be performing some of their favourite country, blues, R&B, Beatles,  gospel, old jazz tunes, as well as some wacky original songs. You will not be disappointed.

The Last Lunch: Join us for a lunch that celebrates local food, awards contest winners, and presents more live music with singer/songwriter David Archibald, and officially closes the Festival. You can also tour the Fish Hatchery and surrounding property.  You will see how the Haliburton Highlands Outdoors Association raises fish to help sustain local fisheries populations. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Haliburton Highlands Outdoors Association.

Hope to see you here!

What’s Happening at the Agnes Jamieson Gallery in Minden Hills Ontario

Minden Hills is spilling over with cultural activities and opportunities .. here is a brief look at what is coming in the near future to the Agnes Jamieson Gallery — the heart of cultural activity in Minden Hills.

Presently Exhibiting:

Agnes Jamieson Gallery
August 26-October 11 Tomato/Tomato John Lennard and David Foyn

Curator Talk: The influences of Lapine

Tuesday
Saturday, September 20 at 2pm

The Grand Salon at the Agnes Jamieson Gallery features the largest selection, from the permanent collection, of Lapine paintings with horses. What caused Lapine to continually compose his work with horses? Curator Laurie Carmount explores the influences in his life and the driving forces that made Lapine the best illustrator of horses in North America.

National Film Board Docs
Every Thursday at 2pm to 3pm
in the Common Room

Next showing September 11

Food, Weapon of Conquest (1941) 22mins This newsreel shows food shortage in Nazi-occupied and how important the advancement of food development will concur;Island Green (2014) 25mins This short documentary takes a look at the changing face of PEI’s agriculture industry. Once famous for its spuds and red mud, this tiny island province now has higher than average cancer and respiratory illness rates. Is there a link to industrialized farming? Rather than dwelling on PEI’s worrisome monocropping practices, Island Green dares to ask: What is PEI went entirely organic? Big Trees (2013) 12mins This short semi-animated film tells the story of a woman’s spectacular ocean view from her apartment in Vancouver’s West End. How far will she go when leaves start to obscure her panorama, her light and her happiness? A brilliant blend of stop-motion, projections and models, drawings and altered live-action transports us into a meditation on the tension between urban life and the natural environment. Like Don Giovanni, will our ambitious protagonist stop at nothing to get her way?
