Both main-stage performances at FestivalGRAPEVINEthe•INVOLVEMENTON THE COVER: Holly CarrThe cover image is a detail of a larger painting, Picking Cherries, done on silkThe Acadia University Art Gallery is pleasedto the solo exhibition, Holly Carr: Light In theForest, October 4 – December 1, 2013.The installation explores nostalgia and childhoodmemories and comprises large-scale paintingson silk that create an illustrated environment ofstorybooks where the viewer is immersed in veiledapparitions. As a child, Carr was drawn to the detailsthat surrounded her, from wallpaper patterns andstrangers to church hats, swooping ravens, andthe neighbours’ underwear hanging on the line.Carr uses these past experiences, which bridge fearand awe, to create a complex realm of narrativesfrom her youth that interrogates the relationshipbetween myths, fears, and safe places.Carr, a graduate of NSCAD, has gained nationalacclaim for her unique style of silk painting. She hasparticipated in numerous exhibitions and designedfor theatre productions as well as public installations.She is well-known for performances whereshe paints live on stage, which have included across Canada tour with Stuart McLean and The VinylCafé. Carr received a creation grant in support ofTheatre were completely sold out, and abustling and positive vibe resonatedoff Wolfville's Main Street all day.This perfect Deep Roots weekendwas 10 years in the making! Ahuge thank-you to the organizersfor their dedication to makethis festival such an amazingshowcase event.It sure is a good time to bethankful.

3 The GrapevineOctober 3 - 17, 2013FURRY FEATUREIhave lived in the Valley all my life andlove it there. People are amazing here.Earlier this year I moved to the city,but I still own a home in the Wolfville—onewith a lawn that needed mowing.I discovered early this year that my mowerwas broken and thus, I was in search of areplacement as cheap as possible. With theabundant spring showers that blessed us,the lawn grew quickly and was looking morelike a jungle. I wasn't sure when I would getit mowed and where I was going to get amower, but then an email came from a friendacross the street to let me know that herhusband mowed it for me. It may seem likea small thing to some, but this was huge forme. Thanks, Darren, for being so kind.Random Act of Kindness is Brought to you by: Daniels’ Flower Shop Ltd. 40 Water St, Windsor798-5337 www.danielsflowershop.netMaryPRINCESSFeature Pet: PRINCESSPrincess is the spayed and declawed sister of Duchess,who has already found a new home.

I'm looking for your gig stories andstories-behind-the-song. If you have something to share, mail them, along with a highresolutionphoto, to mike@mikeaube.com. This week's installment comes from yourstruly by way of Ryan Hupman. I'm re-telling it from memory and Ryan told it to memany moons ago, so my apologies if I've twisted the details.venture to say that most folks aroundI here have heard of the Hupman Brothers.Those who know them might alsoknow that they hail from a little town insouthwest Nova Scotia called Shelburne.And those who have been fortunateenough to have met their parents canbegin to see where their humble andfriendly pesonalities come from.Many of the best songs come from truestories. The story behind the Hupman Brothers' "One Horse Town" is one of my all-timefavourite stories-behind-the-song. Legend has it that as a young man, Ryan was sittingon the front porch with his Mom and Dad, passing a quiet summer day. I see them in mymind's eye drinking lemonade, his Mom knitting a sweater, his Dad reading a newspaperand smoking a pipe, and Ryan whittling a piece of wood, but I might be making that up.In any case, they were talking about how small Shelburne wasand his Mom remarked "Yup, this sure is a one-horse town". Allat once they looked up from their respective pastimes to see asolitary horse walking down the road with no human companionto be seen.Ryan's Dad, without skipping a beat, replied "And there itgoes..." And the seeds for another great song were sown.Compiled by Mike Aubewww.mikeaube.comOPINIONSWe want to hear from you! We offer you, the reader, this section of the paper to share your positiveor constructive thoughts on issues that matter to you. Please keep things brief (under 100 words),put your name to your opinion, and don't use proper names of people or businesses when talkingabout others. Also, be aware that we tend to be a community-building paper; we hold the right torefuse publishing.Water World Worries:For the second summer in a row, amember of our community has planteda raft-sort-of-thing in the Wolfvilleharbour. This year's contraption is a lotbigger than last year's, when I still thoughtof it as a fun sort of initiative. Last year,after all, the “owner” invited anyone to usethe contraption for swimming and sunning.This year, he has also planted flags alongthe entrance to the Wolfville harbour, hasposted “No Trespassing” signs all over hiscontraption, roped off parts of the area, andinstalled a webcam.The contraption is full of styrofoam, whichcould be seen easily when it got parked atthe entrance to the Wolfville dyke for thewinter. I was very disturbed by its parkingthere. It's an ugly contraption and styrofoamis a very serious pollutant and healthhazard. When exposed to the tides, it erodeseasily and ends up in the food chain and inthe great ocean garbage patch.I have been utterly astonished that those responsiblefor maintaining the laws here havenot interfered. Then I was told the other daythat the “owner” of this piece of junk hasplanted it below the high-tide line and thatit is therefore not the responsibility of thetown or the RCMP but of the Departmentof Natural Resources. I would assume thatcouncil and the RCMP instantly informedDNR so that it can be removed, but giventhat it's been here for the whole season, Iwonder if that's really been done.But really, what kind of a lame excuse isthat? Shall we all dump our fall cleaningjunk into the harbour in a few weeks? It'sbelow the high tide line, after all. I also havetwo old bicycles I need to get rid of. Into theharbour! No one will bother, right?...please live up to your responsibilities andget this eyesore out of here pronto. It's afirst-class embarrassment, health hazard,pollutant, and eyesore.Elisabeth Kosters(Printed with permission)Response fromStephen Wilsack:I purchased foam from Truefoam. This is aNova Scotia–made product, and Truefoamhas been a solid business for many years.Many foam applications they sell includefoam for building, docks and floatationdevices. The EPS has different densities aswell. Their products are not an environmentalhazard.The signs are to protect the property and toensure people realize this is not public property.I have always been available for toursand conversation.Many materials have been recycled anddiverted from the landfill and/or have beenfound along the shoreline and the tent waspurchased locally from Canadian Tire.It is not on DNR property.Stephen Wilsack(Printed with permission)

The trophy had beenawarded to the best senior hockey team in Windsor from1903. It is one of the oldest hockey trophies in Canadianhistory and was last won by the Brooklyn team in 1952.The trophy recently made provincial and national headlinesafter I discovered it in a Toronto antique store. It hadbeen purchased by the antiques dealer at auction fromthe estate of prominent New Brunswick businessman andphilanthropist Mitchell Franklin.I work and live in Toronto. While on a lunchtime walk severalweeks ago, I was drawn by a powerful force into the veryantiques store where the magnificent sterling silver 1903Windsor Citizens’ hockey trophy was on display.I have a natural love affair with the Maritimes, springingfrom my family roots in western Newfoundland. My love isalso rooted in Wolfville, where my son, daughter-in-law, andgranddaughter live.On seeing the trophy, it was love at first sight! It broughtout my love of hockey. It also brought out the love for doingthe right thing—of a group of Canadians working togetherfor the public good by helping another group of Canadians.It was then and there that the Toronto-Windsor HockeyFriendship Society was born.Perhaps the Mayor of Windsor and the Warden of WestHants say it best in their letter sent to the Toronto-WindsorHockey Friendship Society on September 26:“It is a unique and special occasion when a group of citizensfrom one of the largest cities in North America cometogether to help a small community in Nova Scotia. Butthen again, Canada is a unique and special place to live…andCanadian hockey fans are a special breed.”By pooling our resources the citizens of Toronto andWindsor are working together to buy and repatriate the lostCitizens’ trophy. It didn’ttake long to “hatch” the planonce local hockey historianDavid Carter, David Hunter,President of the WindsorHockey Heritage Society,and I got to talking.And yes, the trophy iscoming home to Nova Scotiathis Thanksgiving weekend.Thanks to the support andgenerosity of the WindsorHockey Heritage Society, itwill be on permanent publicdisplay at the WindsorHockey Heritage Museumin Haliburton House foreveryone to enjoy once again.As for me, for the time being, I will continue to take mylunchtime walks and eventually retire to become a “relichunter”!To read more about this unique story, to help the fundraisingeffort, or to find out more about the upcoming Windsor celebration,go to: www.birthplaceofhockey.com.

9 The GrapevineOctober 3 - 17, 2013The Who s WhoPaul Dunn...A Dunn Dealreally enjoy writing this column. I get toI meet so many interesting people. SometimesI’ve seen these people on the street orat the Farmers’ Market, and then down theroad we connect for a Who’s Who profile, andit’s a great feeling. This is sort of how PaulDunn came to me. I remember seeing Paulhere and there, and then a few weeks agohe agreed to be profiled here. And what aninteresting guy!Paul Dunn livesin New Minaswith his wifeGail and theirthree children:Jackson, Abbyand Ashton. Pauland Gail movedto Nova Scotia 20years ago so thatGail could attendAcadia DivinityCollege. She isnow a BaptistMinister andpastors a churchin Lockhartville.It was a movethat they enjoyedand found verybeneficial, as theyboth love living in Nova Scotia. I know thisisn’t about Gail, but she does play a hugefactor in Paul’s being, so I have to give a littlespace to her (thank you, Gail!).Paul has worked in all areas of homebuilding.He is currently employed with the localhome building company, Denim Homes.Paul also opened a non-commission realestatecompany in January of this yearcalled HomesByOwner.com. You may haveseen the signs around town. Paul owns theHomesByOwner.com rights to all of NovaScotia except Halifax. He enjoys buildingthis business and finds it satisfying dealingwith homeowners and businesses, enablingand empowering them to sell their homesthemselves and therefore saving themthousands of dollars in commissions. Forexample, a couple from Kentville saved over$20,000 in commission on the sale of theirproperty by using the services of Paul’sbusiness.You can check out Paul’s website www.homesbyowner.com/kentville.Packages start at relativelylow prices and Paul works with a localbroker who can provide other services andcan also work with local real-estate agents.I know all that business stuff isn’t overlyinteresting. Paul’s got more to him then whatyou’ve just read. Paul has played guitar andsung with the group Shoulder to Shoulder(STS) for six years. Paul is a contractedsongwriterfor PerchancePublishing in NewMinas and is adedicated memberof SOCAN. Alongwith singing andwriting songs,Paul has managedto write twochildren’s books,and even went astep further byreading them tochildren all overthe provinceduring literacyweek. Paul hasa new children’sbook in the works(still waiting forillustrations)called Billy, theMoth Who Wanted to be a Butterfly, so keep aneye out for that sometime next year.Paul says, “One of the highlights of singingand playing with the group STS was whenthe twin towers were struck down in2001, many of the flights were rerouted toGreenwood and we were asked to play at amoment’s notice for the many people whowere stranded here while they figured outwhat to do. It was an incredible joy to be ableto play for them and add some comfort totheir stay.” The group also played in schoolsall over Nova Scotia during Black Historymonth in February. They sang and leddiscussions about the struggles of the slavesand how they overcame adversity.Paul’s two biggest passions are his faith andhis family. Working can consume a lot of aperson’s life, but Paul finds a balance andthoroughly enjoys interacting with his kidsand watching them grow. He sure knows howto get things DUNN!

10 The GrapevineOctober 3 - 17, 2013Don Quixote – Royal Opera HouseOctober 18, Al Whittle TheatreThe adventures of Cervantes’ bumbling knight have been the inspiration for manyballets, best-known of which is the Don Quixote of Marius Petipa with music by LudwigMinkus. All the elements of the great classical ballets are here: emotion, drama and vividcharacters. Royal Ballet Principal Guest Artist Carlos Acosta has danced the virtuoso roleof Basilio many times. So it is especially exciting that he is creating this new productionfor The Royal Ballet, with designs by Tim Hatley, who will give a modern edge to a broadlytraditional staging. The music (here arranged by Martin Yates, who also conducts) is fullof Spanish flair and atmosphere, with a characteristic clarity of melody and rhythm thatmakes it so instantly appealing. Don Quixote is a wonderfully entertaining ballet, knownnot only for its grand pas de deux, but for the “white act” visions of the beautiful Dulcineaand many lively scenes—a crowded port, an uproarious tavern—that bring the wholeCompany on stage.Hello Kings South candidates, pleaseprovide 100ish words on your stanceon the issue of fracking in Kings County.Shane Buchan, ProgressiveConservative Party of NS candidateI've had manydiscussionsabout frackingwith twogeologists onmy campaignteam. If doneproperly, thedangers canbe minimized,but properregulationswould certainlybe needed and, most likely, be quite costprohibitive.Overall, I'm not in favour of this method ofextracting energy from the area. I've seen whatfracking has done in Pennsylvania, it's a scarywasteland. I'm much more in favour of lookingat energy options offshore before opting forthose onshore.First and foremost, I'm here to represent thepeople of Kings South.Sheila G. Richardson, Green Partyof NS candidateThe GreenParty of NovaScotia does notsupport onshoregas productionby drillingor hydraulicfracturingor futherinvestment inoff-shore oil andgas. We opposethe fluid wastefrom hydraulic fracturing in other provincescoming into Nova Scotia for treatment,storage or disposal.Onshore gas production from unconventionalfields like shale carries high risk, includingsignificant impacts on groundwater.In areas, such as Kennetcook, Hants County,we oppose fracking due to the possibility ofradun and uranium being released. We believethat the safety of the community is at risk andwould oppose such developments.Keith Irving, NS’s Liberal PartycandidateVoters fromone end ofKings Southto the otherhave made itknown to methat they havedeep concernsabout fracking.I support themoratoriumon frackingfirst called for by the Liberals and as set outin the Liberal Platform. I also oppose theimportation of fracking waste from otherjurisdictions which the NDP have allowedand I will continue to oppose the importationof fracking waste. The Liberal platform alsocalls for a ban on the importation of frackingwaste. I also believe that any analysis of risksassociated with fracking needs to be conductedindependent of government, with themethodology of the research and the resultsmade available to all Nova Scotians. I believethat the fracking discussion in Nova Scotiashould not be driven by applications, butby comprehensive research on the risks andcommunity consultation.Ramona Jennex, New DemocraticParty NS incumbentThe NDP will not allow hydraulic fracturing inNova Scotia unless Nova Scotians know that itwill not harm the environment. Cape BretonUniversitypresidentDavid Wheeleris leading anindependentreview ofthe social,economic,environmentaland healthimpacts ofhydraulicfracturing.The Wheeler review will look at all aspectsof fracking, including storage and disposalof liquids; its conclusions will guide thedevelopment of public policy on fracking. Nofracking is now underway in Nova Scotia.Rodney MacDonald’s Conservativegovernment allowed fracking in theKennetcook area despite growing concerns.The Liberals have ignored serious publicconcerns by proposing that the province pick“green fracking” as a sector for economicdevelopment.

14 The GrapevineOctober 3 - 17, 2013Horoscopes for the weekof October 3rdCopyright 2013 Rob Brezsnyfreewillastrology.comARIES (March 21-April 19): Are you goodat haggling? Do you maybe even enjoy thechallenge of negotiating for a better price,of angling for a fairer deal? The coming weekwill be a favorable time to make extensive useof this skill. According to my analysis of theastrological omens, you will thrive on havingfriendly arguments with just about everyone,from your buddies to your significant otherto your mommy to God Herself. Everywhereyou go, I encourage you to engage in livelydiscussions as you hammer out compromisesthat will serve you well. Be cheerful andadaptable and forceful.TAURUS (April 20-May 20): In DavidMarkson's experimental novel Wittgenstein'sMistress, the protagonist fantasizes aboutthe winter she lived at the Louvre Museumin Paris. She says that to keep warm shemade big fires and burned some of themuseum's precious artifacts. I'm hoping youwon't do anything remotely resembling thatmythic event in the coming week, Taurus. Iunderstand that you may be going througha cold spell -- a time when you're longingfor more heat and light. But I beg you notto sacrifice enduring beauty in order toameliorate your temporary discomfort. This,too, shall pass.GEMINI (May 21-June 20): "Don’t say youwant love," writes San Francisco authorStephen Sparks. "Say you want the morninglight through a paint-flecked window; say youwant a gust of wind scraping leaves along thepavement and hills rolling toward the sea;say you want to notice, in a tree you walkpast every day, the ruins of a nest exposedas the leaves fall away; a slow afternoon ofconversation in a shadowy bar; the smellof bread baking." That's exactly the oracle Iwant to give you, Gemini. In my opinion, youcan't afford to be generic or blank in yourrequests for love. You must be highly specific.You've got to ask for the exact feelings andexperiences that will boost the intensity ofyour lust for life. (Here's Sparks' Tumblr page:invisiblestories.tumblr.com.)CANCER (June 21-July 22): "The world breaksOakeveryone,GroveandCemetery,afterward, many are strongerKentville, in the broken places," wrote Cancerian writerOctoberErnest Hemingway.9th 8pm By my estimation, myfellow Crabs, we are now entering a phaseClockTower of our astrological Park, cycle when we can makedramatic progress in healing the broken placesWolfville,in ourselves. But even better than that: As weOctober 10th 8:30pmdeal dynamically with the touchy issues thatcaused our wounds, we will become strongerthan we were before we got broken.LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Let's hope you havegiven deep thought to understanding who youare at this moment of your life. Let's also hopethat you have developed a clear vision of theperson you would like to become in, say, threeyears. How do you feel about the gap betweenthe current YOU and the future YOU? Does itoppress you? Does it motivate you? Maybe alittle of both? I'll offer you the perspective ofactress Tracee Ellis Ross. "I am learning everyday," she told Uptown Magazine, "to allow thespace between where I am and where I want tobe to inspire me and not terrify me."VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Do the words"purity" and "purify" have any useful purpose?Or have they been so twisted by religiousfundamentalists and mocked by decadentcynics that they're mostly just farcical? Ipropose that you take them seriously in thecoming week. Give them your own spin. Forinstance, you could decide to purify yourselfof petty attitudes and trivial desires thataren't in alignment with your highest values.You might purify yourself of self-deceptionsthat have gotten you into trouble and purifyyourself of resentments that have blockedyour creative energy. At the very least, Virgo,cleanse your body with extra-healthy food,good sleep, massage, exercise, and sacred sex.LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I periodicallyhike alone into the serene hills north of SanFrancisco and perform a set of my songsfor the birds, insects, squirrels, and trees.Recently I discovered that British comedianMilton Jones tried a similar experiment.He did his stand-up act for a herd of cowson a farm in Hertfordshire. I can't speak forJones' motivations, but one of the reasons Ido my nature shows is because they bring outmy wild, innocent, generous spirit. Now is agood time for you to do something similarfor yourself, Libra. What adventures can youundertake that will fully activate your wild,innocent, generous spirit?SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Are you anxiousand agitated, afraid that you're careeningout of control? Is there a flustered voice inyour head moaning, "Stop the insanity!"?Well, relax, dear Scorpio. I promise you thatyou no longer have to worry about goingcray-cray. Why? Because you have alreadygone cray-cray, my friend. That is correct.You slipped over the threshold a few daysago, and have been living in Bonkersville eversince. And since you are obviously still aliveand functioning, I think it's obvious that thedanger has passed. Here's the new truth: Ifyou surrender to the uproar, if you let it teachyou all it has to teach you, you will find a livelyand intriguing kind of peace.SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): To giveyou the oracle that best matches your currentastrological omens, I've borrowed from"Sweetness," a poem by Stephen Dunn. I urgeyou to memorize it or write it on a piece ofpaper that you will carry around with youeverywhere you go. Say Dunn's words asif they were your own: "Often a sweetnesscomes / as if on loan, stays just long enough// to make sense of what it means to be alive,/ then returns to its dark / source. As for me,I don’t care // where it’s been, or what bitterroad / it’s traveled / to come so far, to taste sogood."CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In herbook Teaching a Stone to Talk, Annie Dillardapologizes to God and Santa Claus and anice but eccentric older woman named MissWhite, whom she knew as a child. "I am sorryI ran from you," she writes to them. "I amstill running from that knowledge, that eye,that love from which there is no refuge. Foryou meant only love, and love, and I felt onlyfear, and pain." Judging from your currentastrological omens, Capricorn, I'd say thatnow would be a good time for you to dosomething similar: Take an inventory of thebeauty and love and power you have sought toescape and may still be trying to avoid. You'refinally ready to stop running and embrace atleast some of that good stuff.AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The DragonLives Again is a 1977 film that tells the storyof martial arts legend Bruce Lee fighting badguys in the underworld. Among the villainshe defeats are Dracula, James Bond, theGodfather, Clint Eastwood, and the Exorcist.I urge you to use this as inspiration, Aquarius.Create an imaginary movie in your mind'seye. You're the hero, of course. Give yourselfa few superpowers, and assemble a cast ofscoundrels from your past -- anyone who hasdone you wrong. Then watch the epic taleunfold as you do with them what Bruce Leedid to Dracula and company. Yes, it's onlypretend. But you may be surprised at howmuch this helps you put your past behind you.Think of it as a purgative meditation that willfree you to move in the direction of the bestpossible future.PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): After studyingthe myths and stories of many culturesthroughout history, Joseph Campbell arrivedat a few conclusions about the nature of thehuman quest. Here's one that's apropos foryou right now: "The cave you fear to enterholds the treasure you seek." He came up withseveral variations on this idea, including thisone: "The very cave you are afraid to enterturns out to be the source of what you arelooking for." I urge you to consider makingthis your operative hypothesis for the comingweeks, Pisces.[Editor: Here's this week'shomework:]Name ten personal possessions that you'dput in a time capsule to be dug up byyour descendants in 500 years.

15 The GrapevineOctober 3 - 17, 2013MIKE Uncorked:ELVIS…. DUNN TO PERFECTION!!!THE CROSSWORDGuess whocalled me atwork last week?Let me put allyour suspiciousminds to rest…it was Elvis!!Well, okay, notTHE Elvis but itwas Elvis TributeArtist ThaneDunn, and that’sclose enough forme! I have to saythat the experience of chatting with “Elvis”on the phone was very disruptive to my stateof composure because I am a huge Elvis fanand Thane Dunn is an incredible Elvis tributeartist. Thane was calling because in thepast I’ve helped promote his show throughvery loud word of mouth and through myUncorked Articles here in the Grapevine. Heasked if I would lend the same courtesy forhis upcoming show in Wolfville. He barelyhad half the question out and I was at thecomputer starting to type.Thane Dunn has been a busy man since hislast stop in Wolfville. The 2009 InternationalWorld Champion Elvis Tribute Artist has hada very hectic touring schedule, has changedbands, and even had time to win the World'sLargest Elvis Gospel Competition. He will bereturning to Festival Theatre with his newshow Elvis on Tour, Saturday, Oct 12. Thane’sannual Valley show, with his eight-pieceband The Cadillac Kings, was in Windsorlast year; this October, Thane returns to theFestival Theatre to entertain the masses withhis stellar showmanship and his incrediblegiving spirit.I have seen Thane perform three timesbefore and he is nothing short of amazing!Thane has become widely regarded as thevery best Elvis tribute artist in the world.He is the full Elvis package, folks, from hisnatural resemblance to uncanny vocals andchoreography. He has the ability to mesmerizehis audience and create the illusionthat you are seeing the King himself. Evenpeople who have seen the real Elvis Presleyin concert say, Thane is so spot-on that it’slike seeing the King of Rock and Roll all overagain. I can safely say, even not having beenborn before Elvis died, that I have seen thenext best thing to the man himself.The new show,Elvis on Tour, willhave all yourfavorite Elvisrock, country andgospel classicsplus lots of hissongs that peoplelove but don’toften get a chanceto hear. Thane’snew Cadillac Kingsinclude threeEast Coast Music Award winners along withan impressive array of amazing players.You’ll see authentic replicas of classic Elvisstage costumes, and Thane always has somesurprises up his sequined sleeves for theaudiences. Trust me, this is a show you don’twant to miss. You can visit thanedunn.netwebsite for photos, videos and informationabout Thane and his band, or go to youtubeto see footage of this unique performer.You’ll swear it’s the king himself.Thane says, “I think the show constantly getsbetter. We've always gotten a fantastic receptionin Wolfville but I know this show willblow them away. Even one of my new suitsactually has a stud which fell off of Elvis’soriginal suit in 1972 during the filming ofElvis on Tour.”The glitz and glamour of Thane is great, butbehind this show is a humanitarian and verycaring individual. Two years ago Thane losthis father to cancer and shortly after his nowwife Melanie was diagnosed with ovariancancer. She is a real fighter and has beencancer free for over a year now. Thane hashelped Ovarian Cancer Canada financiallyin the past and will be donating a portionof proceeds from the Wolfville show to theNova Scotia chapter.On Saturday, October 12 at 7:30, catchThane and his band as they raise the roof Elvisstyle at the Festival Theatre in Wolfville.Tickets are on sale at the Acadia Box office.Call 542-5500 or visit the website at boxoffice.acadiau.ca.I must stress that this is afamily show, perfect for all ages and a greatway to introduce your kids to the music andpersona of one of the greatest entertainersever.
