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.
Sunday Evening at the Westport Spring
WAC is proud to present a new summer series: Stories & Songs. Featuring local musical talent and storytellers, join us at the Westport Spring on select Sunday evenings throughout the summer. Bring your chair, a coffee (or an ice cream!) and enjoy the beautiful outdoor venue while we entertain, enchant and enliven.
There is limited seating so get there or be square. In case mother nature isn’t in a good mood, the event will be moved one block away to the United Church (corner of Spring Street and Church Street).
