On a hill in the rolling countryside, just five or six kilometres north of Uxbridge, the Thomas Foster Memorial commands attention. Its structure, inspired by the Taj Mahal, is built out of limestone, bronze, copper, marble mosaics and stained glass. It’s a beautiful venue architecturally, with very special acoustics.
The Foster Fridays program offers a chance to appreciate the interior detail and enjoy some local talent. Providing a donation at the door affords admission to shows every Friday through the end of October. Coming up tonight is guitarist Mike Thompson, who has three albums to his name, mixing his guitar with work on the dobro, harmonica, sliding guitar, pedal steel, lap steel and mandolin.
