Searson coming to Meaford Hall - Simcoe.comFriday, November 04, 2016
Canadian “Celtic Roots” band Searson is touring in support of their eighth studio album, Stars Above the Farm, which was released in June 2015.
They will be at Meaford Hall on Oct. 28 for a show.
Sisters Colleen and Erin Searson have been touring full time since 2002. Like their new release, Searson’s live concerts feature a mix of original vocal and instrumental selections, as well as a few traditional gems. Colleen handles the high energy fiddling, Erin is a piano virtuoso and plays tenor guitar, and both girls contribute Ottawa Valley step dancing and gorgeous (sibling) vocal harmonies.
Stars Above the Farm is named after the sisters parents' farm in the Ottawa Valley of Northeastern Ontario where the girls grew up. The concept for this album has been rooted around stories and tunes about the Ottawa Valley and the history of the Searson family.
The song ‘1847’ is a story centered around the Searson family immigrating from County Tipperary, Ireland to Hyndford, Ontario and building a life there.
Colleen and Erin Searson are the sixth generation to be raised on the original family farm in Hyndford.
Upbeat song 'Early Morning Funeral' is a story about a bachelor party in the town of Eganville. The boys break into the local funeral home, borrow a coffin and take the bachelor for a ride across the bridge.

Investigation into death of soldier Andrew Fitzgerald concludes - CBC.caFriday, September 02, 2016
Fitzgerald was new to the army, having joined near the end of January, according to his obituary. He completed basic training in St. Jean, Que., before heading to Meaford, Ont., about 30 kilometres outside of Owen Sound.
There he completed a basic trade qualification course at 4th Canadian Division Training Centre.
Friday before he went missing, Fitzgerald graduated from the course and received a marksmanship award. To celebrate, he then had dinner with his parents, who were visiting from Cape North, N.S. He was reported missing the next day.
'Couldn't wait to get home'
Fitzgerald grew up in the small Cape Breton community and had been planning a trip back.
"His true passions consisted of riding his motorcycle on the Cabot Trail and playing video games with his sister, Katie, and cousins, Jacob and Willy," his obituary said.
"Andrew couldn't wait to get home to spend time with his high school friends and hang out at 'da barn'."
Lonny Kates, a spokesman for 4th Canadian Division, said colleagues of Fitzgerald's "were deeply moved" by news of his death.
"It's absolutely devastating," Kates said Thursday.
"Our deepest condolences and sympathies go out to Pte. Fitzgerald's family and friends. The entire Canadian Armed Forces community is deeply saddened by this."
In his obituary, his family said he made friends easily and cherished each one.
"Upon joining the Canadian Armed Forces, Andrew forged new relationships and often referred to them as his family."
The military paid for his parents' transportation home and to return his body to Cape Breton. An officer was also available to assist with funeral arrangements, Kates said.
The funeral is scheduled for Friday at 2 p.m. at St. Joseph Church in Dingwall, N.S.
Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, March 27, 2019
He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days.

When Doyle became editor of the Globe in 1963, he chose Davey as his managing editor, and, according to Mills, the two raised the broadsheet's reputation from that of a local paper to a national one. Davey was managing editor for 15 years before joining the Vancouver Sun in 1978. He was publisher there until 1983, when he took over at the Gazette. He was publisher of the Citizen from 1989 to 1993. He was also president and chair of The Canadian Press, and co-founder and president of the Michener Awards Foundation that oversees the country's most prestigious journalism prize."He was the true journalist of journalists," says Kim Kierans, journalism professor at University of King's College in Halifax and Michener Foundation board member. "He told me when I last saw him in November, ‘If we're not providing the encouragement for journalism organizations and journalists within them to do the journalism that matters, then we're in trouble as a democracy.'"He was also a lovely man, smart and sparkling … with incredible enthusiasm for the business and its future."According to Mills, Davey, who in 2002 led a protest on the steps of the Ottawa Citizen after Mills was fired for running an editorial critical of then-prime minister Jean Chrétien, was known as tough and gruff, "but deep down he was a really kind and thoughtful person, and a very good friend who was always fair to people. But if you didn't know him, he could be intimidating."And although he called the shots on the job, it was Joyce who ruled the home roost. According to son Ric, his father only stopped the presses twice - once while at the Globe, when Joyce called him to report that she and Ric thought they had just seen a UFO."That was the kind of pull she had over him," says Ric.Clark Davey is survived by his wife, Joyce; brother Kenneth George; children Ric (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr. (...
