Ed Talks will be Shred Talks June 29
The Cranbrook History Centre’s Ed Talks is becoming Shred Talks June 29, with four well-known local musicians speaking and performing at Royal Alexandra Hall.
The new format for Ed Talks this month includes the regular lecture, but also a live musical performance from four of East Kootenay’s most dynamic musical personalities.
Ferdy Belland, Morgan Fraser, Heather Gemmell and Maddisun will be speaking on the topic of being a musician in a small town.
Ed Talks are a series of free presentations, panels, and workshops from invited guests held on the third or fourth Wednesday of every month.
Each month a new speaker or set of presenters share their knowledge of the East Kootenay’s natural and local history, and the skills or crafts they have honed in this region.
The name ‘Ed Talks’ was coined by a 2020 history centre summer student and is a play on the world-famous speaker series and Cranbrook’s somewhat infamous escaped circus elephant, Ed.
Admission is always free to Ed/Shred Talks but registration is required. Register here.
Doors open at 630 p.m. Wednesday, June 29 and the show starts at 7 p.m.
