|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Saturday, repeating until January 22, 2022

Some of you may be familiar with the Cabinet of Curiosities that my partner Lewis Melville has been dutifully attending to/changing daily for the last two spring-fall seasons. (photos of the Cabinet here: https://www.facebook.com/tannis.slimmon/posts/10158460462525380 )

And you may be familiar with the Tannis & Lewis’ Backyard Concerts series that we’ve hosted in (where else?) our backyard. (https://www.backyardconcerts.ca )
Well, Lewis has decided to combine and celebrate both with an art show and concert series at Silence, a great space just a stone’s throw from the Guelph Farmers’ Market.
The ART SHOW opens this Tuesday (Nov 16th – Jan 22nd) and will feature Lewis’ first series of over 100 paintings and the actual Cabinet of Curiosities (which will be changed regularly). There will eventually be an online gallery for those who are not able to attend in person. (https://www.silencesounds.ca/curiosities )
The CONCERTS will begin November 20th and happen almost every Saturday morning starting with Lewis & I at 10:00am, followed by a different performer/group at 10:30 and 11:00. Each week’s performers will be announced the week of that show. (https://www.silencesounds.ca/winter-carnival-concerts)
This week, The Banjo Mechanics are on at 10:30am and the featured act at 11:00 is Allison Lupton & Tony McManus.
Tickets for in-person attendance (recommended) are by donation – https://www.eventbrite.ca/…/silence-and-backyard… COVID protocols will be in place.
We will be livestreaming the concerts on the Tannis & Lewis’ Backyard Concerts page so if you can’t make it in person, join us from your backyard! (Just kidding!)
