Music in the Lake show set for Thursday night

The problem with getting old is that sometimes your hands don't work.
Our previously scheduled performer, Bruce Brackney, has been sidelined with arthritis in his thumbs. It hurts just to think about.

Our previously scheduled performer, Bruce Brackney, has been sidelined with arthritis in his thumbs.  It hurts just to think about.

Jack and May, who I was planning on bringing in early 2012, are available for September 22, and have agreed to the switch.

Jack Stephenson (father of Zack Stevenson of the Human Statues) is a guitar player, singer and songwriter who works with May Brown, another singer/songwriter.

Their work is humourous and intelligent, certainly not aimed at the lowest common denominator.

As always, Music in the Lake will begin at 7:30 p.m. with an open stage, during which time anyone interested in performing will be invited to do so.

Admission is $5.
