Muse-Talks Academic Lecture Series Continues with Magnificent Music & Theory

Southampton, ON [March 31, 2022] Local writer, fiddler, and photographer Will Henry joins the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre for the second in its Muse-Talk Academic Lecture Series on April 13 from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM for an evening of music and insights about fiddle culture.

This talk will include live traditional music and a slideshow of Henry’s photographs taken over forty years following fiddle culture and some of the changes he has observed. He will also play some of the original fiddle tunes from his new book Juggling the Notes and some traditional music with his wife Lynda on concertina.

Hailing from the Owen Sound area, Henry is known for both his fiddling with the contra dance band Scatter the Cats, and his twenty-five years as a journalist with the Owen Sound Sun Times. Combining his interests in music, photography and writing, he produced Juggling the Notes after many years of exploring and documenting fiddle culture and creating his own original tunes within the tradition. Copies of the book are available for purchase at the Museum’s Gift Shop.
