Songwriter Supporting the Carousel Restoration

One String Wonder project, a Music Video

TTHUNDER BAY, ONTARIO,  October 7, 2019  (LSN) Thunder Bay: Local Singer-Songwriter Megan Nadin has recorded a music video with the Chippewa Park Carousel operating in the background. Nadin has also started a Go-Fund-Me campaign in support of the restoration of the 104-year-old heritage designated Carousel.  The song, I Don’t Care, written by Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber is currently available on You Tube and has already received 1,000 views with links on The Friends of Chippewa Park’s and Save Our Carousel Web Sites. The song forms part of the “One String Wonder’ project initiated by Megan Nadin

“The carousel stands for everything that the One String Wonder project stands for - growth and evolution. When I arrived on cite to check out the location, the carousel immediately stood out above the other rides on site. When I was informed on just how much effort has gone into restoring the beautiful 104-year-old carousel, I immediately knew I wanted this piece of history to be the focal point” said the local artist. “Then and there I decided to launch a go-fund-me campaign to go hand in hand with the video in hopes to help in the efforts of the restoration.”

“We are thrilled to have a talented young woman like Megan Nadin supporting the carousel restoration in this manner” said Save Our Carousel Co-Chair, Donna Gilhooly. “We have always recognized the C.W. Parker Carousel as one of the key cultural heritage assets of our community and to link it with a music video performed by Nadin makes that link even more obvious.”

“We continue to be grateful to all of those who have generously contributed to the restoration of this local jewel” commented Bonnie McNulty, Co-Chair.

Nadin explained the background to the creation of the One String Wonder Project? 

“I write my music by coming up with lyric and melody while plucking the base notes of my guitar and jokingly calling myself the “One String Wonder”. As my music began working its way through the production phases, I was able to see how these minimalistic songs evolved to be so much more. With this, I thought it would be fun to share covers of trending songs that people were familiar with, using my “One string Wonder” style  as a way to share my own original creative process, while also paying respect to the fact that a song that starts with simple base notes (one string at a time) can evolve to be something so much MORE. Truthfully - I think the same thing goes for people, places and things - it’s important we appreciate the process and allow things to grow and evolved in their own way.”

All funds raised through the Go-Fund-Me project will go towards the restoration of the Chippewa Park Carousel.
