The Second Annual Great Grannies’ Concert was held on September 10, 2006 in Wakefield, Quebec.
The concert opened with the drumming of Kathy Armstrong from Baobab Tree.
The group Immaterial, featuring Brian Sanderson, Nathan Curry, Denis Drouin and Oren Hercz interpreted a line-up of songs chosen by the Grannies and were followed by Bethan and the B-Boys featuring Bethan Nodwell on vocals, Rob McFadden on guitar, Jean Maisonneuve on drums, Miles Howe on harmonica and Peter MacGibbon on bass.
There were some new and exciting aspects to the day as well as the return of a few well-loved projects. Prior to the concert drumming classes were given by Kathy Armstrong of Baobab Tree and during the concert, previously owned CDs were offered in return for a donation. Food, drinks, greeting cards, birdhouses and raffle tickets were on sale at the event.
In celebration of the day, the Wakefield bookstore Solstice offered a story telling program of African children’s stories for young people.
The event was a true celebration of community spirit and an opportunity to enjoy a wonderful day of food, fun and music all the while helping to support our friends in South Africa.
