It is an interesting multi-media project combining very old and new

The St. George Bi Centennial committee has combined the barn quilt trail and a music cd to promote the Villages Bi-Centennial celebrations.

A series of 12 barn quilts have gone up on structures in the area, and they feature items of local significance including hockey, war veterans, railroad, agriculture and firefighters to name a few.

To go along with the quilts, students at St. George German Public school spent the week recording a song to accompany each of the barn quilt themes.

The students worked with James Gordon, a songwriter from Guelph who will take the recordings back to his studio and produce a cd. Gordon says he is an assistant to the students because they do all of the work

The students performed their songs at two performances at St. George German Public School, Friday November 21, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. at a student assembly and at 6:30 p.m. for the St George Community.
