D. Rangers a big hit

Friday night the place to be was at the heritage barn of Kim and Pat Cornell. Music and song filled the place with blue-grass music that was sure to get your foot tapping.
The group calls themselves D. Rangers, this talented group of five are from Kenora and Winnipeg. They entertained at the Winnipeg Folk Fest, that’s where Pat Clysdale-Cornell first enjoyed their music. She had an idea “just maybe” they would come and perform in our area. After some planning on the Cornell’s part they arranged to have a show here Friday, Sept. 2.
Approx. 160 people (of all ages) and even one young woman “Jesse” from China made it to the dance floor, likely for her first “hoe down” dance lesson ever.
Allan McTavish and granddaughter, Kate, showed us a few fancy steps along with a few others. However, the dance barn was so packed with people, the dance floor was very small.
