The County of Lennox and Addington will be celebrating Canada 150th anniversary on August 19th at 7pm. Join us for an unforgettable free evening of entertainment outside on the grounds of the Lennox & Addington County Court House. Lennox and Addington County Court House is an important building within the County and Canada. Given its association with some of the first families of Upper Canada it is a very fitting venue to celebrate the 150th anniversary of confederation.
In 2014 Lennox and Addington celebrated our own 150th Anniversary. Our Canada 150 Celebration will use a similar format and will feature an exciting line up of music and entertainment. The evening will feature Newfoundland based band The Irish Descendants. The Irish Descendants are a Juno award winning folk music group from St John's, Newfoundland. Their music is a blend of Irish Newfoundland songs and tunes.
Our musical line-up will also include the 70’s Revolution featuring Lennox and Addington’s award winning vocalist Andrew Martin. Andrew and his band will be bringing us some of the greatest hits of the 1970's. Opening the evening is Sol and the Switchblades. Sol and the Switchblades are also from Lennox and Addington and are a three piece rockabilly band playing music from the 50’s and 60’s.
Returning to Lennox and Addington for an encore performance is Circus Orange. Circus Orange combines cirque performances with pyrotechnics. We can guarantee that it will be an explosive performance.
Celebrate Canada 150 in Lennox and Addington is funded in part by the Government Canada and our partners The Great Waterway, The Napanee Beaver and 88.7MyFM. For more information please visit www.County150.com.
