Singer Laura Smith stars as Helen Creighton in this concert about the folklorist’s life. Marty Burt, Dan McKinnon, Mandy White, Stewart Legere, Dilly MacFarlane and Terry Mullan are among the cast, and students from the Dartmouth Jazz Choir and Dartmouth All-City Strings accompany the actors.

Running loose around the Citadel

Runners charged through the moat and across the parade grounds during the MEC Citadel Highlander Race on Sunday. Parks Canada staff steered racers around the course and warned fans from lingering under ramparts that still glistened with icicles. Naturally, organizers added a few historical touches to the event. A Highlander led the pre-race stretch with exercises used by soldiers long ago. Another fired a musket to start the race.
