We had a great return to Joe’s Food Emporium on January 26th. Lots of folks already at the bar and a few tables reserved by people who came out to spend an evening with SWIG. There was lots of singing and even some dancing before the end of the evening, even through there was little room to cut a rug! We took advantage of Facebook Live to broadcast the show to family that were unable to attend and it was great to get their feedback as they watched from Halifax. We’ll be back at Joe’s on March the 9th so think about booking your table early!
SWIG Kitchen Party at St John’s Anglican Church
This year St John’s Anglican church is celebrating their bi-centennial and we are happy to be doing a show there on May 5th. Tickets will be $20 per person and will be available in April.

SWIGgin Fundyview Village at the Windsor Elms – 31/01/18
SWIG returned to the Windsor Elms to close out the month with a special Pub night in Fundyview Village. It’s always a great time when we have an opportunity to play for residents and staff at the Elms. People were clapping and singing along from start to finish. A special thank you to Anne Parks and Toni Myles-Bennett for leading the chorus in “Seven Old Ladies”, although we’re still trying to figure out why the ladies were eventually stuck in a Firetruck ... Thanks also to Regan Bennett for her work as a Roadie hauling gear in and out for the show.
We have a busy Saint Patrick’s Day planned again this year. We’ll be starting out at Paddy’s in Kentville with music beginning at noon and after supper we will finish the day at The Spitfire Arms in Windsor. Break out your green and bring your Spoons, Bones, and Bodhrans – there will be singing along!
Iechyd da tan y tro nesaf! (Good health until next time)
