Janet McDonald’s Interview with Dave Cunningham of The Kingstonian Podcast

This episode of the Podcast profiles a musician, who leads a group of dedicated players – all playing hand bells.

Janet McDonald is the director of the “Limestone Ringers”, a hand bell choir based at Edith Rankin Memorial United Church, located at the west-end of Kingston.  Hand bells trace their evolution back to the big bells in the spires, pulled by long ropes, back in the late 1600’s, in the British Isles.

These days, the “Ringers” perform in churches, primarily, with a repertoire of sacred and popular music.  Promoting the choir, incorporating new music, and bringing like-minded bell ringers together – all part of Janet’s passion for her role.
