To celebrate Canada Day, cake will be served in the garden and from 1:30 to 3 p.m. the Kehler-Williams trio will perform under the tent.
The Kehler-Williams trio gives you a musical show inspired by Scandinavian, Celtic, and Quebec traditions.
Playing a variety of instruments, they will perform songs in English and French, as well as instrumental pieces played on the nyckelharpa (a Swedish string instrument), flute, accordion, violin, octave mandolin, guitar, and piano.

Irish and Scottish music have always influenced musicians from Eastern Canada (particularly in the Maritime provinces).
Marie-Hélène Dion (violin) and Steve Normandin (piano and accordion) offer you the best traditionally-inspired violin melodies.
With Alan Jones on bagpipes, Ralph Thompson on violin, and Joanne St-Laurent on Celtic harp, the Agincourt’s three musicians have played traditional Irish, Scottish, and Quebec music for more than 20 years.
Their repertoire includes rhythmic dance suites, merry ballads, as well as poems and melodies reminiscent of Celtic lands.
