The first Sunday of each month the Fireside Cafe in Wingham provides a stage for young musicians to perform to a local live audience.  On April 7th three young women were on the roster  – 14 year-old Maggie Durnin, 14 year-old Kendall Jardin and 17 year-old Haley Boyle.

Unfortunately we arrived too late to hear Maggie’s performance.  Boyle, a student from St. Anne’s Secondary School in Clinton, hails from Auburn and is a student of Scott Chow at Studio C.  She sang and played her guitar.  “It’s really nice to get out and get experience in front of people,” said Boyle “It really cool! I haven’t been playing too long.”   The final performer of the mid-day (11:30 – 2pm) event was Kendall Jardin who attends F.E. Madill Elementary School.  She sang all her popular performance pieces and played the piano for a few of her songs, and the guitar for the rest.  She’s a student of Scott Chow as well and says she enjoys playing the drums too. “It’s good experience to develop skills for a (music) career,” she said about what it meant for her to have an opportunity to play to a live audience.

I took a friend along with me to celebrate her birthday and we enjoyed the entertainment as well as a full breakfast buffet that included a substantial salad bar, scrambled eggs, french toast, waffles, bacon and sausage as well as a full dessert bar.  Tickets were just $16.99 per person.

Philip Stelzer, Proprietor of the Fireside Cafe, feels its important to give local musicians a stage and will continue to host artists and musicians regularly.  The next Youth Talent Brunch will be the second Sunday in June as Mother’s Day falls on May 5 when they’ll be offering a special buffet to honour all moms.  Also upcoming this month is Al Crawford of Late Night Rodeo.  He was a hit the last time he visited the Fireside Cafe!  Check the website or follow on Facebook at
