Sea Vancouver Festival with Natalie MacMaster and Leahy

Jul 6, 2005

By Catherine Barr


The Sea Vancouver Festival got off to a VIP start last week with the Cannon Ball Blast at the Plaza of Nations. A wine reception and dinner cruise to Tall Ship Island was followed by a special opening night performance by Natalie MacMaster and the awesome brother/sister eight-member group Leahy.

Guests Paul LeBlanc and Vicky Tanguay traded insults with the very amusing Crabby the Crab character.

A dinner cruise to see the tall ships was in order for North Van's Gord Kleaman and Samantha Bannister.
It's no joke, newly re-elected MLA Lorne Mayencourt (left) was all smiles as comedian Patrick Maliha seriously announced that he will run for the NPA in the upcoming November election.
No, it's not Smith from "Sex in the City", but L.A.'s Christopher Trandell, captain of the "Bill of Rights" tall ship, bears a remarkable resemblance.
Whatcha doing Camilla and Freddie ? - wink
Tim Wispinski, seen here with wife Tracey, proudly poured his Tinhorn Creek wines during the VIP reception.
The explosive energy of the brothers and sisters of Leahy earned them a standing ovation from the audience.
Seen here with her bagpiper and guitar player, tap-dancing, fiddle playing Natalie MacMaster got the evening concert off on the right foot.
