In their third concert in the Stars for Saskatchewan Series, the Bengough Municipal Arts Council (BMAC) brought musical group, The Good Lovelies to town. The first of the 11-12 season saw a November concert with Woody Holler and the Human Statues in January. On March 21, approximately 110 people gathered at the Bengough Community Centre for the evening concert. The group included Corroline Brooks, Kerri Ough, Sue Passmore plus accompanist, Paul Mathews. The groups three female members began their musical careers as solo artists in the Toronto area. The girls came together in 2006 to perform at a Christmas concert in Toronto’s Gladstone Hotel, and from that meeting the Good Lovelies evolved. They have performed in England, UK, USA, Australia as well as Canada. Gerry Coubrough said, “The harmony of female voice produced a very relaxed enjoyable evening. All the ladies showed their expertise on mandolin, banjo and guitar. A unique combination of instruments accompanied with bass violin.” Gerry said, “They were very friendly, fun loving, down to earth performers having the sound of the Andrew sisters of the big band era.” The Bengough Community Centre served beef on a bun, desserat and coffee before the concert. BMAC served dessert during the intermission and bar drinks were available. Next up for BMAC will be the 2012 edition of the Gateway Festival, set to go on July 27-29, 2012 in Bengough. George Canyon is set to headline this year’s event. email@example.com
