Top-notch talent


Canadian singer-songwriter Ian Thomas entertained the crowd at the Townshend Theatre on Friday night, wrapping up the 2006/07 “tour de Fort” season. Thomas not only played a range of songs from his catalog, including the crowd-pleaser “Painted Ladies,” but told engaging stories of love and laughter, including anecdotes about his brother, comedian Dave Thomas, and the late John Candy. Passports for the 2007/08 sesson are now on sale. Check out for more info. —Duane Hicks photo
