By Request Only

A Concert by Wayne Kelso and Friends ANY SONG ANY ARTIST!

Friday, February 16 | 7:30 pm

We have a fantastic evening of entertainment lined up for you on Friday, February 16! Musician extraordinaire, Wayne Kelso, along with other local musicians, Cole Zabloski, Darcy Ura and Missy Jacobson, will be presenting a concert by request only. That means that the evening will consist solely of songs requested by the audience. You choose any song by any artist and the artists will perform it!

This is a fundraiser to support the new Art Centre, so we will be following the age-old tradition of putting your request on a $10 bill, so please come prepared with a pocketful of tens!

Here’s how the evening will work:

Prior to the start of the concert and at intermission, we’ll have a table set up where you can trade your real $10 bill for a “concert” $10 on which you can write your song request and/or artist. You will also be able to write your name on the bill for a chance to win a door prize, drawn at the end of the evening.

In addition, you will be able to add your request to the mix at any time throughout the concert just by holding up your $10 bill. We’ll exchange it for a concert bill. A live auction for a song request will happen in each of the two sets.

Please join us for this great evening of music by four very gifted local musicians. All proceeds will go to support the new Art Centre.

Tickets are $25 and are available at the Museum and will be available at the door (if we’re not sold out!)

There were 6 prisoner-of-war camps on Lake of the Woods during World War II. The lumber camps housed German prisoners who were set to work out in the bush cutting timber. The Museum has several boat models built by the prisoners at those camps.
