One year ago today: One of Dundas County’s last live musical performances

MOREWOOD — A year ago today: Anxiety was quietly building but life was still “normal” in Ontario as Montreal-based harpist and vocalist Marie Hamilton (originally of Vermont) played to a receptive audience at the former Morewood United Church — now a privately owned venue otherwise operating as a fitness retreat known as New Origin — on March 8, 2020.

Local trio Ha’ Loonie join Marie Hamilton Music on the final number.

In retrospect, it would have been one of the last live performances enjoyed by a paying audience in Dundas County before the government responded to the incoming virus by shutting everything down the following weekend — initially for two weeks. Life hasn’t been the same since.
