The first week of June is Seniors’ Week in Calgary. The first week of June is Seniors’ Week in Calgary. Music Mile and National Music Centre in partnership with Age-Friendly Calgary are presenting Eldersong, featuring seven senior Calgary artists in an exciting new Seniors’ Week broadcast on Facebook Live on June 8 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm MST.
Artists performing include Barry Luft, music inspirer and philosopher; Doc Mehl, cowboy poet and songwriter; Eilish Hiebert, a true daughter of the folk music and Irish Celtic music traditions; and Edna Einsiedel, who found the ukulele or rather it may have found her.
Each artist will compile a 10-minute video, and charismatic host Bob Chartier (with editing by Rob Skeet of Skeeter Media in Inglewood) will weave the stories and music together into a 90-minute show. The Facebook Live stream will be available at NMC and Music Mile's Facebook pages.
