On July 24th at 7pm Violin sensation Chris McKhool gets children and families dancing, clapping, laughing and singing songs.

Chris plays several musical styles (jazz, blues, classical, Rumba flamenca, funk, world beat, East Coast fiddling and more). Supported by a spectacular band.
Admission is $3 per person. Live at the Macpherson House happens throughout July and August under the event tent, in the gardens of the Macpherson House. For more information, call 613-354-3027. Please bring your own lawn chair.
