Free Virtual Concert In Support of Alzheimer Society

Free Virtual Concert In Support of Alzheimer Society

NEWS RELEASE
ALZHEIMER SOCIETY OF SIMCOE COUNTY
*****************************
The Alzheimer Society of Simcoe County is proud to announce Tunes n’ Treats, a livestream concert presented by IG Wealth Management on April 23 in support of the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s, featuring local talent B. Knox, Sam Johnston and Whisky River.

The live zoom event will celebrate participants, create awareness and share how you can walk 10,006 steps for 10,006 people living with dementia in Simcoe County.

“The IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s is the Alzheimer Society of Simcoe County’s biggest fundraiser of the year and is essential to the ongoing delivery of programs and services,” says CEO Debbie Islam.

The virtual event will be held from 7:30-9 p.m. and admission is free. For additional information about the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s and to register for Tunes n’ Treats click here. The first 100 Simcoe County residents to register who are 19 years of age or older will receive a VIP bag with local treats and a farm-to-glass experience from Quayle’s Brewery.

“The awareness created by events like this one and the funds raised through the walk are even more important this year as we continue to provide virtual education, support services, and social programs to persons living with dementia, and care partners to minimize the impact of social isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Islam.

For information and to register visit here.

More about the Tunes n’ Treats performers:

B. Knox
Releasing a debut album during the height of a worldwide pandemic was not what former kindergarten teacher B.Knox had in mind when he set out: admitting laughingly, “if misery loves company, I think this is the kind of record that might connect us all during such an uncertain time.” Receiving critical acclaim from AmericanaUK, Folk RadioUK, RnR Magazine, and radio play from SiriusXM, Starbucks, and CBC, Knox’s prediction may not be far off the mark, at least from a critical and commercial perspective.

Born in St. John’s, Nfld., Knox’s connection to the East Coast is apparent in his song writing and phrasing, shaped and smoothed like ocean stones. Weaving songs out of the stories and places that surround him, Knox’s aptly titled album, Heartbreak & Landscape, is that exact mix of what he describes as his “two main wells of inspiration.”

With the release of a live EP to end 2020, and currently recording his sophomore album, it is safe to say Knox is not resting on his laurels.

And Barry was the first ever guest on Uncover The Music!

Sam Johnston
Sam Johnston is a singer-songwriter from Orillia, Ont. Her blues and folk roots are audible in her guitar playing, which is accompanied by her raspy voice and subtly gloomy lyrics. She attends the Community Music program at Wilfrid Laurier University. Her first EP, Sad to Say was released to all major platforms in the summer of 2020.

Whisky River
Whisky River is a group of four “mature” aged gentlemen, who come from a wide variety of musical experiences. They have written and recorded much music, both separately and in collaboration with each other. Their sound crosses many borders, from rock to folk and a wee bit of country. The vibe of the band is having a good time and listening to good, well played music. Music which has something to say. Since entering the Live and Original showcase in Collingwood, they have enjoyed playing at several venues throughout the region.

The Non Lame V Day Playlist

The Non Lame V Day Playlist

We’re at it again!

Thanks to the glory of Spotify and Soundcloud, we’ve assembled another playlist featuring tunes from the killer local scene to help you celebrate a special day.

These are tracks for Valentine’s Day…but not necessarily of Valentine’s day.

Designed to be the soundtrack for a low key evening with your special someone; some of these tracks are melancholy, some are love songs, some are sad, some are pointed and some are just effin’ GOOD.

And if you’ve got some suggestions and tracks from the local scene that match up well, let us know!
