1 pm Ray and Cheryl Belanger:

Ray and Cheryl perform classic Country Music from the fifties, sixties and seventies.  They have been married for 37 years, and have been performing together for much of that time. Early in their musical adventure they formed the folk band, Simple Gifts.

It started out with just the two of them, and, over the next 30 years grew to 6 members. In the past year they have expanded their musical talents to include a large repertoire of Classic Country songs.
Ray and Cheryl have performed several times at Sweetwater Farms as the Simple Gift’s band, both during the spring and summer programs, and during our holiday programs. They have been met with much applause and joy by the many folks that have attended their performances.
Through music, Ray and Cheryl wish to share the experience, emotion and inspiration of life with their audience. The joy and love with which they pursue this goal is obvious during their stage performances.
