Adrianne Dunphy Takes Top Award at Eastern Shore Talent Show FinalsAdrianne Dunphy, First Place Winner at the Eastern Shore Talent Showcase Finals almost didn't compete.

First of all it rained most of the weekend which forced Stone Soup Festival organizers to reschedule some events at the outdoor gathering in Moser River. To top it off, a 4 hour power outage made it touch and go for the 6 semi-finalists who had been selected from 8 Eastern Shore communities over a 6 month period.

Even if the rain stops, everyone reasoned, the dampness in the air can ruin electronic instruments. It can also be dangerous with performers running the risk of electric shock.

Stone Soup Places 2nd at Eastern Shore Talent Show FinalsAs one audience waited warm and dry at the local Fire Hall and another audience at the Festival grounds, a volunteer crew quickly tarped the stage, the air cleared just in time, and the event was a go.

With some hesitation, Adrianne agreed to let her electric piano be carried to the stage. She then proceeded to impress judges and audience alike with her hauntingly beautiful rendition of "I will always love you". Her decision paid off as a panel of 9 judges made it unanimous.

Arthur Zilkowskyi Placed Third in the Showcase FinalsSixteen year old Adrianne had walked away with the First Prize of a trophy, $500 cash, and a Martin Backpacker Guitar signed by Chet Atkins. [Read more about Adrianne in October's Issue of Highway 7].

The Second Prize of $250 and a beautifully crafted Hartling guitar made right here in Sherbrooke was awarded to a gospel group from Middle Musquodoboit called co-indentally "Stone Soup".

Arthur Zilkowskyi from Head Chezzetcook won the Third Prize of
$100, a trophy and a McNally Strumstick. Arthur also won First Prize in a parallel competition for "Best Original Song". [Read more about Arthur and "The Bay of Islands Original Song Writing Contest" in October's Issue of Highway 7].
