THE NEWS FROM BRUNER'S BROOD-APRIL 25, 2020-CORONA VIRUS EDITION Print E-mail

Hello everyone.

It is with deep sadness that I learned this week that the three major contests I was supposed to play back home in Canada this summer have been cancelled because of the Corona virus; the 23rd annual John Arcand Fiddle Fest in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, the 31st annual Canadian Grand Masters Fiddle Competition in Winnipeg, Manitoba and the 45th annual Pembroke Old Time Fiddle and Step Dance Contest in Pembroke, Ontario. I also learned today that that The Cleavers’ Old Time Dance planned for Saturday, August 15th in Spruce Home, Saskatchewan has been postponed to August 2021.

This means there will be no Canadian trip back home for me this summer.  I will remain in Norway for my usual choir and church activities in 2020 and will plan for another trip to Canada in 2021. It will not be a usual summer back home for me this year but I will be working on other projects in the meantime to make a difference for others no matter where they are.

Until next time, stay safe and healthy. We will meet again down the musical trail.

Musically yours, Trent
