“Visions From Our Past” come into focus during Flashback February

The County is “flashing back” this month with performances, concerts, talks and events during “Flashback February” from the 15th to 22nd.

“This is a perfect opportunity to get out and enjoy music, heritage, art, food and other experiences that explore the County’s rich and interesting past,” said Jennifer Lyons, curator, the County Museums.

Macaulay Heritage Park museum will host “Floss & Tann’s Cabinet of Curiosities,” a family-friendly Victorian sideshow that’s an immersive museum of marvels from the five corners of the globe.

Flashback February kicks off Feb. 15 with a Jeremie Albino performance at the Regent Theatre. Albino, a County resident, credits working on local farms as his way of perfecting songs and lyrics. He’s been touring in the U.S. and Europe and is to perform with the Rosehall Band.

The schedule also includes:
Organist Murray Baer returns for an afternoon of movie theme music at the Picton United Church, performing on the church’s massive and historic pipe organ and accompanied by vocalist and guitarist Craig McRae.

Author and publisher Steve Campbell hosts County Trivia at the Waring House.

Artist Luanne Hartman will lead two Paint ‘n Pour parties, one in the style of regional artist Manly MacDonald and the other capturing The Grange of Prince Edward in winter.

Kendra Fry, project lead for Faith and the Common Good, will speak about how to preserve religious spaces in the face of declining attendance, by reinvigorating the buildings as community spaces.

Sample Parsons beer and empanadas while hearing about the days when barley was the king of County crops.

The newly opened Back Room keeps the 1920s theme going with a Speakeasy Murder Mystery. Guests can choose to be suspects or interrogators and work their way through clues to solve the crime.

Taste That! is reviving its Flashbacks! performance, interviewing County “celebrities” about the way things were, then riffing on those memories for its improv comedy.

Talks on the Glenora Ferry, Jewish involvement in the Second World War, the Black Donnellys, the County’s Barley Days, the history of slavery along the St. Lawrence, the impact of residential schools, and Wellers Bay marine history.
