Maud & me...

Mose Scarlett, Jackie Washington, Ken Whiteley 

It's with great sadness that I mark the passing of my old friend, Moseley Stephen Scarlett, who died on May 30.  When I say old friend, we became friends in the 1960's.  In 1969 we made our Mariposa Folk Festival debut at the same "New Songwriters" concert.  We played together often through the 70's & 80's, but the 20 years working together with our friend Jackie Washington really took our friendship to another level.  As well as his amazing, baritone voice and crisp, fingerpicking guitar he will be missed for his generous spirit, great sense of humour and loquaciousness.

    

Sunday, June 30  Come celebrate the Canada Day weekend at the opening of the "Maud Lewis" art exhibition at the McMichael Art Gallery in Kleinburg, ON. One of Canada’s most beloved folk artists, Maud Lewis (1903 - 1970) was famous in her lifetime for her brightly coloured and endearing paintings of rural Nova Scotia. There will be a curatorial talk by McMichael Chief Curator Sarah Milroy followed by an exhibition viewing and concert by Ken Whiteley, fiddler Anne Lindsay & Gord Mowat on the big string bass. Art Gallery opens at 11am. Formal opening of the Maud Lewis exhibit at 2pm.  Concert at 3pm. 

Hope to see you soon.
