JUNO Winning Joey Landreth to Open Tamworth Concert Series Mark Oliver


rom being named as the Emerging Artist of the Year by the Canadian Folk Music Awards in 2014 and then receiving a JUNO Award for the Roots –

Traditional Album of the Year in 2015, Joey Landreth is embarking on a path of winning fans over, one show at a time. With his most recent album, Whiskey, Landreth has a lot going for him. Not only does he have a sweet-as-molasses singing voice sounding like a cross between Jackson Browne and Joni Mitchell, he also twins it with some pretty serious six-string wrangler attitude and his slide-guitar charm is breathtaking and figures prominently. With his one-of-a-kind guitar prowess, charming on and off-stage demeanour, the sincerity and authenticity of his words and music, every Landreth composition carries with it his unmistakably evocative and melodic hallmarks.

2019 Heritage Calendar Marcella Neely


nce again, the Cloyne & District Historical Society calendar committee has produced a remarkable 2019 issue. For months, members searched through photos, interviewed residents, and collected information about old businesses and buildings within our six municipalities. Some have been re-purposed, while some no longer exist.

The now vacant corner at Hwy 7 & Hwy 41 will always be known as the site of the well known Kaladar Hotel, with its stories of visitors, celebrations, rescues,

and fellowship. Across from it, the tiny gas bar/ice cream stand has matured into what is now the modern Shell station and general store. There once was a grist mill in Denbigh, and residents gratefully praise the Glaeser store’s survival. The Northbrook hotel has been closed for a few years and the small general store across from the car wash is only a memory. These and many more in-depth memories are recorded in the 2019 heritage calendar. It is available at the Cloyne Pioneer Museum & Archives or can be ordered through our website: www.cloynepioneermuseum.ca.

The SCOOP • August / September 2018

In March 2018, the Kaladar Hotel at the corner of Highways 7 and 41 was torn down. The Ministry of Transportation purchased the property several years ago with plans to change the intersection. The Trickey Family operated the hotel (in the picture above) for 30 years before selling to Andy and Donna Anderson in 1989. It operated as a restaurant before closing in 2006.
