Special Concert

RYAN LAIRD came today for a special concert for our CMES school community.
"With his single I’m Your Man breaking the top 10 in Canadian country charts in 2011, and with an album coming this year, Laird is back in the Centre Wellington-Guelph area for some rest and relaxation, and to share his insights about making it in music with local school kids."

Mr.Laird performed several songs with his guitar for the students as well as answered some questions. His song 'Hey Ashley' is a great song that ties in well with the antibullying campaign. Click on the Youtube link to hear it for yourself:

Reminder: cookie day is tomorrow (Friday).
