The 5th Annual Amnesty International Ottawa Opry
News Release – April 11, 2012
ANNOUNCING THE 5TH ANNUAL AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL OTTAWA OPRY!!
The AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL OTTAWA OPRY is in it’s 5th year, and we are marking the occasion with another great line-up, and a new home at the Unitarian Congregation, 30 Cleary Ave in Ottawa’s West end (west of Westboro).
Joining Pat Moore and the Vinyl Frontier on stage are…(drum roll please….) Sneezy Waters, fresh from having just released a brand new CD; the amazing and versatile Keith Glass (Prairie Oyster’s lead guitar player and writer, and a great vocalist in his own right!); Ball and Chain, the zany and very talented duo who have captured Ottawa and Louisiana’s hearts; and Maple Hill, an award winning bluegrass band featuring Garry Greenland, a much sought after musician and teacher of all aspects of bluegrass… and again by popular demand Garry is back as our MC – keeping the show rolling.
The Amnesty International Ottawa Opry started in 2008, the idea of singer/songwriter Pat Moore, who was looking for a way to bring the old style entertainment package to the Ottawa audience, and at the same time raise some awareness and funds for Amnesty International.
Amnesty International is a global movement of over 3 million people committed to defending those who are denied justice or freedom. It’s very fitting that the 5th Annual Amnesty International Ottawa Opry will take place at the Unitarian Congregation on Cleary – as the congregation was instrumental in sowing the seeds for the creation of Amnesty International’s Canadian branch in 1974!
Many thanks to our Platinum Sponsor Tracy Arnett Realty Ltd, and to the Social Justice Committee at the First Unitarian Congregation!! Thanks also to Cedar Lane Studio, The Ottawa Folklore Centre, CKCU, Barbuzz, and Constant Sound Studio for their contributions.
Show time: Sat May 26, 8pm. Doors open at 7:30. Tickets are $20 in advance and $22 at the door. Advance tickets are available at the Ottawa Folklore Center, CD Warehouse locations, and online at www.patmoore.net.
