A girl needs a place to wear her feathered boa

As 2015 drew to an end I decided to do something I had not done in forty years – go out for New Year's Eve.  I was lured out for a few reasons: one, being a friend who was visiting from British Columbia; two, being a 75% off sale at Sears where I discovered the perfect blue lace top to go with my feathered boa and lace skirt; and three, the trifecta of my favourite dance band Ouroborus, Kubasonics' front man Brian Cherwick,   
Chernick plays a dazzling array of Ukranian instruments.  The one he is holding
 is a relative of the medieval herdy gerdy.
and the aerial talent of Wonderbolt's Hilary Walsh and Keely Whitelaw.  At last, I was going to a New Year's party where people actually knew how to hang from the ceiling.  No alcohol required.  To say it was a memorable evening would be an understatement.
Wonderbolt's new venue The Space–
our new neighbours at Eastern Edge Gallery.


  1. Ah, thanks for the recap, and the names, and the pictures, that will help my memories solidify. Was a fun show, thanks again for getting me out there to see it.

  2. I was tempted to write more…Cherwick it turns out is an Adjunct Professor with Folklore/Ethnomusiciology at MUN. Hope to get to hear him minus a noisy bar crowd. Interviewing him is on my "to do" list.
