Sunday July 10 was Discovery Day at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts and the Burnaby Village Museum. The Village hosted a large number of performers throughout the day and people wandered through both venues soaking up the atmosphere and talent.
There was plenty of live music including Hang Johnny playing the Hang Drum just outside the gate accompanied here by Nick Apivor who also gave group drumming demonstrations in the meadow.
Here’s Joe Haag playing his 1800′s style banjo. Very very cool.
My favourite sounds of the day were from Coral Fusion Latina in the old church – a perfect venue for music.
There were dance performances in the most unlikely of places. This one was a contemporary dance at Vorce Station.
Then there was Tango on the veranda of Elworth House.
Footlight Theatre gave Vaudeville shows in Brookfield Hall.
Other performers roamed through the venues entertaining kids and adults. Here are a few of the more interestingly attired….
Ventriloquist Kellie Haines with Magrau was a hit…
Here the Forras Hungarian Foldance Ensemble. They performed at the Shadbolt Centre but came over to the Village afterward to enjoy the event and make use of the great locations for some group photos.
Once more the Museum offered something for everyone with the Day Festival celebrating Arts, Culture and Community.
