Time: 2:00PM

Doc is a weathered, wily, but infinitely likeable storyteller/performer. Writing from the dark side of the blues highway, Doc’s distinctive vocals and bare fingers National guitar plot an intense, emotional remapping of contemporary Delta blues and roots music. During the last decade, MacLean has performed 200+ road dates each year– his annual National Steel Blues Tour typically playing in all parts of all ten Canadian provinces, two territories and 25 US states.

Music at MERA: Lynne Hanson

Sun, 28 Nov 2021 - Sun, 28 Nov

Time: 2:00PM

Cost: $25

Too tough for folk and too blues-influenced for country, Lynne Hanson’s brand of “porch music with a little red dirt” can turn on a dime from a sunshine, blue sky ballad to a full-on thunderstorm of gritty Americana swamp from one song to the next. She’s known for her high-energy, roots guitar driven live performances, whether playing solo or with her band The Good Intentions. A closet stand-up comedian, Lynne often leaves the audience howling with laughter with her between-song-banter. Tickets: ticketsplease.ca

Vernissage: Fiona Szabo

Sun, 07 Nov 2021 - Sun, 07 Nov

Time: 2:00PM - 4:00pm

Fiona began to paint at age 5. Now, at 11 years, Fiona has entered and won art competitions in Canada and the US. Her work is primarily acrylic on canvas and meticulously executed drawings. She draws her inspiration from her family, the natural and manmade world around her, and anything that piques her curiosity.  Fiona’s major project over the past two years has been a graphic novel drawn from her life and imagination. Panels from this work will be on display at MERA. Inquiries about Fiona’s art or commission requests may be made through her mom, Shelagh Chambers.  For information about when you can see this exhibition, please contact Wayne Stryde.
