Awesome Ottawa: Dominion Carillonneur to play K’naan’s “Wavin’ Flag” on Feb. 15


I’ve always thought it would be fun to take over control of the bells in the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill, and break out a little Smoke on the Water or Thunderstruck or even Sweet Child O’ Mine.  Well, this may be the next best thing.

On Tuesday, February 15, the Dominion Carillonneur will be playing a selection of tunes for Flag Day, including an arrangement of K’naan’s “Wavin’ Flag”.   Yes, that’s right, seriously, we’re not joking. Dr. Andrea McCrady, the current Dominion Carillonneur (aka player of the Peace Tower bells), will be performing her own arrangement of the song as part of a concert between 12:00pm and 12:15pm on Parliament Hill.

Big thanks to Kaitlin Wainwright for sending this our way.
