I haven’t posted for awhile, as I have been busy becoming a “consultant”. But that’s another story. This story is about finally going to a folk-type concert. This weekend marks the 100th anniversary of the Hillcrest mining disaster – the worst mining disaster in Canadian history. This weekend the Crowsnest Pass area offers many events to mark that date. The ceremonies began yesterday with a memorial walk and dedication of a new monument in the Hillcrest Cemetery. Last night’s offerings was an outdoor concert featuring Connie Kaldor (my female folk hero), James Keelaghan, and Tim Russ. Blaine and I both pushed our comfort zone, dodging other commitments to attend. I can’t believe that we finally did it I’ve been waiting years for us to go to such a concert. Of course the concert tent and beer gardens were filled with fellow boomers – grey hair, canes, limps, frumpy bodies and all. Nevertheless, all came to enjoy the concert and commemorate this tragic moment in history.
