Jack Ronalds has been a fixture in local photography for thirty-eight years. The beauty, serenity and surprises of the scenery of eastern Nova Scotia, in all seasons, have always held a special appeal for him.

Of late, Jack's interests have included photographing the marine traffic seen daily in the Strait of Canso.

A representation of Jack's work, marine and local scenes, is on display in this show.  They are printed on  canvas giclees.

As part of David Francey's release of his new album Empty Train , he willbe performing at the Shannon Studio May 4. David is a singer and a storyteller. His wry humour and astute observations combined with his openhearted singing style have earned him a loyal following.

"Francey has made a reputation for himself as one of Canada's most revered folk poets and singers… [His songs] are small and beautifully crafted pieces of work that have made Francey both a folk festival favourite and something of a latter-day Canadian poet laureate.” - Greg Quill, the Toronto Star

May 4-  Shannon Studio  7:30 p.m. 

Presented by 1015 The Hawk, Maritime Inns and the Reporter.

Tickets may be purchased at the Port Hawkesbury Civic Centre, or by calling 625-2591, or online.
