Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LfciHBRIOGE HERALD Monday, September 23, 1974 Castle shelters dance ensemble NEW YORK (CP) To its performers, Slask is a way of life revolving around an an- cient Polish castle where folk singers and dancers live and work and even produce their own newspaper. Canadians will get a chance to watch a little of Slask in the next two weeks when the dancers and singers perform in Montreal, Ottawa, London, Hamilton and Toronto. shlonsk is the Polish State Folk Song and Dance Ensemble featuring 120 singers, dancers and orchestra. The company, founded by Stanislaw Hadyna, a Silesian writer and musician, is cele- brating its 20th anniversary. Hadyna is still its artistic director. Slask opens its 40-city North American tour Friday with a three-day stay at the Place des Arts in Montreal. Since the Second World War, folk dancing has become a multi-million-dollar business as well as a popular expression of cultural nationalism. Slask has contributed to the upsurge in folk dancing but hasn't been to North America in 15 years. Some 13 million people have watched the troupe perform in Europe, Russia, China, Israel and Australia. Slask is the Polish word for Silesia, the southern and west- ern portion of Poland border- ing on Germany, Hungary and Czechoslovakia. It is rich in musical folklore. Two of the world's best- known dances, the Mazurka and the Polonaise, are Polish in origin. Pictured above is Mr. A. J. E.

The Sales contest that ended recently covered the Western Canada Feed Division. Looking on is Mr. J. H. Hanna, General Man- ager of the Vigor Feeds Division of Burns Foods Ltd. of Calgary. CHARLOTTETOWN (CP) When Bonnie LeClair climbs on the stage, and pulls up the inevitable stool, it is with a practised grace that somehow seems unpractised. Although she is 18, she has been singing in public for long enough for it to show. Not overtly, but in the simple di- rectness in which she relates to the audience. No preten- sion, or coy gestures. The image is that of a young woman, of a certain vulnerability. Dark hair fram- ing an open smile, she sits balancing her guitar, granny dress draping to the floor- boards. Almost like your sister, or even daughter, about to give her first high school concert. But when Bonnie LeClair To mark the first issue of its new national coinage...

A powerful one that can edge on rawness, then swoop to clean, lullingly-sweet notes. No adolescent trills, or forced vocal pyrotechnics. Just an audience-hushing, this is-for- real quality. It was a voice that impress- ed Warner Bros, enough to make her the first new per- former in four years to be signed by the prominent record company. Actually it was not just her voice. She also is a promising songwriter. In public appearances, her repertoire is entirely hers. And it gets en- thusiastic responses. Take a recent concert in Wolfville, N.S. Bonnie was the warm-up act for Gordon Lightfoot. In the concert that afternoon, Lightfoot was on edge and grumpy. He asked the audience not to clap and complained repeatedly about the acoustics. Some critics said later Lightfoot was an anti-climax. Bonnie LeClair, in that sun- filled Acadia University gym- nasium, provided the real sub- stance of entertainment. Backed by an electric gui- tar and bass, she played a sur- prisingly nimble acoustic guitar. Some songs were introspective and poetic, oth- ers extroverted and rollicking. When she walked on stage, few people had heard of her. When she walked off, to waves of applause, few would forget her. The concert was a salve to some bad news. Because of a plastic shortage, an album that Bonnie had painstakingly cut for Warner Bros, was shelved. "H was really she said in an interview later des- cribing the month-long recording sessions. "It took about a month to get together. I had to get psy- ched up for each song. I would try to think about how I felt at the really re-live what I felt. "It is just one of the things you have to take. I made some really good friends while I was making the album anyway." Perhaps part of the sense of naturalness evoked by her voice is due to the fact that she sings only by ear. But she also has a dancing ability that impressed Jack MacAndrew so much he asked her to audition for the Charlottetown dancing troupe. Les Feux-Follets. MacAndrew is also the director of the Charlottetown Summer Festival. SOCIAL CLIMBERS PRAGUE
