We are pretty excited about the variety of music talent that will be performing alongside the Festival authors. Some of the featured acts include singer songwriter Jean Greer McCarthy, who I first met about 10 years ago when I was doing an article for Lethbridge Living Magazine.
Since that time, Jean has received recognition for her numerous roles as a community leader; one of the founding partners for Alberta home builder Greer Homes, she was selected for both 2007 and 2008 Profit Guide Top 100 Canadian Women Business Owners and was the president of the Lethbridge Canadian Home Builders Association.
In recent years she has also found time to develop a second career as a singer songwriter and we are thrilled to have her take part in The Word On The Street Festival September 25th. You can find her in our archives for the CKXU radio interview on our Festival facebook page, and listen to some of the songs she will be performing on this CBC link: http://radio3.cbc.ca/#/bands/Jean-Greer-McCarthy
Happy Tuesday from the Festival crew…
