Make Music Day Performance at Quaker House

We are delighted to be a participating venue for Make Music Day Halifax 2018!  Make Music Day Halifax is a live, free musical celebration on June 21, the longest day of the year. It was launched in 1982 in France as La Fête de la Musique, Make Music Day is now held on the same day in more than 750 cities in 120 countries. Alliance Française has celebrated Summer Solstice and Make Music Day for the last few years. In 2017,  the event was held in the Halifax Public Gardens, but this year it’s an HRM wide event!

The Dartmouth Heritage Museum will be hosting The Fret Notes at Quaker House from 4:30-6:00 pm. Come listen to some great music and check out all the work that’s been done to the Quaker House garden! The event is free and everyone is welcome. Donations are always appreciated though.

The Fret Notes formed about 7 years ago, and is made up of a group of friends who got to know each other mainly through curling.  They play mostly in the Windsor area and are regulars at local nursing homes as well as numerous benefits and occasionally at the Legion and other venues around town.  They play a variety of music, including country, folk/bluegrass, 50s-60s pop and more current pop music.  Members of the band are:

Dale Elliott – electric guitar, bass and vocals
Richard Smith – acoustic guitar, bass and vocals
Chuck Porter – electric guitar, bass and vocals
Sandra Elliott – acoustic guitar, vocals
Craig Hopkins – acoustic guitar, harmonica and vocals
