On Tuesday, November 5th, Steinbach Arts Council welcomed visitors to a memorable musical performance by the True Jive Pluckers at Grace Mennonite Church. The building was filled with anticipation and excitement. As I ushered and collected tickets, I observed the crowds of people and grew more curious about what I was about to experience. As the time came for the Pluckers to hit the stage, we all settled into our seats, I was amazed at the variety of music as Jack Semple, Ed Minevich and Stephen McLellan took turns debuting their skills on the guitar, fiddle and upright bass. They played several originals including Jaxx Jazz and Papa's Tango, as well as Blue Room, Moonglow, Pennies from Heaven and many more classics. What I enjoyed the most about their music was how emotional and unpredictable their songs were... with a favorite being when Ed serenaded several women in the room with his violin, presenting one lucky lady with a red carnation. The True Jive Pluckers displayed true musicianship and passion as they played.
Thanks to the Steinbach Arts Council for the opportunity to be a part of bringing fabulous music to Steinbach!
