Photo Review – Megan Bonnell & The Great Lake Swimmers

Who: Megan Bonnell & The Great Lake Swimmers
When: March 26, 2017
Where: Parkindale Hall, Parkindale NB

After a long drive through the wilderness, I arrived at the venue. As I expected there was no cell service. Parkindale Hall is a former church turned concert hall. Despite the remote location, the house was full.

Before talking about the show itself, I am feeling the need to tell about the venue. A small space with a old iron fire place in the back as the building’s only source of heat. One of the most wonderful things was the sense of community there. Everyone in the audience seemed to know each other. It was fun to watch people enter and be greeted with so many hellos and hugs.

Megan Bonnell was first on the bill, and I’m not even sure how to describe how amazing she was. It is one thing to be skilled as a singer, but she was so talented at using her voice as an instrument. I can’t say enough good things about Megan’s performance.

After a short intermission was a beautiful set from The Great Lake Swimmers. Playing as a trio the band’s set was a selection of their more “quieter” songs. Their performance was memorizing, and captivated everyone in the audience.
