David Archibald Kicks Off Festival

A great crowd turned out on Friday night at the Park Amphitheatre to enjoy a terrific show by children's entertainer David Archibald!

The show kicked off the North Burgess Heritage Mica Festival, which celebrates the 150th anniversary of the start of mica mining in the area.

David is an interactive songwriter, composer and playwright who is a regular and popular feature at national and provincial parks. He has been commissioned to compose songs about natural and cultural history for various parks and has produced several CDs. His music is a regular feature on CBC radio programs. He has performed on children's television shows such as Sesame Street and he has toured across North America. He is also active in writing, directing and composing for musical theatre and has been musical director and composer for the Young Company for several years. Be sure to check out his new show, Up the River, at the Ganaoque Playhouse from Aug. 6 to Labour Day!
The Great Bear of Summer is found!

The show at Murphys Point featured laughter for kids and adults alike as we sat on the edge of our seats for the arrival of the Grrrrrreat Bear of Summer. Lots of great tunes! A big thank you goes out to David Archibald for getting our festival off to a great start!
