BLYTH – The Blyth community market wrapped up its season on Aug. 26, the final day hosting local talent Cappy Onn playing her violin under a canopy, entertaining the shoppers on Queen Street.
The talented musician began playing at 10 a.m. and continued to regale passersby until 2 p.m., when the market shut down their booths for the last time in 2021.
From classical violin music to nursery rhymes for the little ones, Onn was a big hit.
Onn spent four years studying stage performance at the University of Toronto and earned a BA while simultaneously earning a performance diploma from Sheridan College, she told Wingham Advance Times.
She now lives back in Blyth, where she was born and raised, and teaches violin and singing lessons.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, she would teach at the local schools and the Blyth United Church, but she has been teaching her students online since the pandemic began.
The Blyth community market will return next year, with dates and times to be determined.
