Achill and the Tapestry of Art and Music

Headwaters Arts presented “Tapestry of Art and Music”, a FREE, musically themed, art show & sale fundraising event on Saturday, May 27th, 2023 at the Alton Mill Arts Centre. The afternoon festivities all happened in the outdoor arts space, under the tented roof over the Annex featuring a performance by the Achill Choral Society, led by Shawn Grenke, Artistic Director of Achill.

Sing your Song

Join us for Sing Your Song as we perform a vibrant array of beautiful selections that celebrate the many joys in life: spending time with people you treasure, honouring the beauty and complexity of our natural world, and the rewards of perseverance. We are thrilled to be led by both our artistic director Shawn Grenke and guest director Jenny Crober, and accompanied by our collaborative pianist Nancy Dettbarn. Saskia Tomkins, one of Canada’s most versatile instrumentalists, and a frequent performer with JUNO nominees “The Sultans of String”, will accompany us on violin/fiddle, viola and nyckelharpa. Tickets are available now!
