Celebrate the Season with Tripoly and the Grenville Troubadours as they present “Comfort and Joy ” on Friday December 15 at 7 pm at Holy Trinity Anglican, Merrickville and then again on Sunday December 17th at 2 pm at St. James Anglican, Kemptville.
Comfort and Joy features a number of carols from different geographical regions and time periods, from Ireland through Wales, England to France, Germany and the Basque country and from the 12th century up to more recent times. Many will be familiar to you. We absolutely encourage you to join in and we will be providing words that can be projected. Interspersed with songs are traditional tunes (many early carols were folk tunes before the words were written) as well as selected dramatic readings from A Christmas Carol, ending with Scrooge’s conversion to understanding the true meaning of Christmas.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at B&H Grocers and The Crusty Baker in Kemptville and The Village Bean in Merrickville. Both churches also have tickets!
This show is a fundraiser for the House of Lazarus food bank and the churches. Please feel free to also bring donations of non-perishable items to the concert!
