Best of the Fest: MUSICwestport 2015 Recap

The MUSICwestport Festival just keeps getting better and better and 2015 continued that tradition! Thanks to everyone who came out, our sponsors, the bands, and all our volunteers! See you all next year!

 

Can’t possibly wait a whole year for more music?! Keep an eye on our schedule for more musical events!

The Stories & The Songs

Over the past four weeks Stories & Songs has become a Sunday tradition at the Westport Spring. The complimentary coupling of music and the often-forgotten art of oral storytelling brought together impressive local talent that included 2014 Voice of the Rideau winner Stephanie Doornekamp and storyteller John Willson. The beautiful outdoor yet intimate setting of the Spring on the water’s edge in downtown Westport proved to the perfect venue that reflected the relaxed, natural and fresh spirit of the performances. Mother Nature did get the best of us one weekend with some rain but the cosy shelter of the United Church not more 100m away just seemed to add more local flavour. Attracting both residents and visitors, the success of Stories & Songs was shared with over 200 people and seemed to be the perfect way to spend a summer Sunday evening.
