Old Country Soul
It’s that time of year when craft & bake sales start popping up everywhere! Last weekend I went to such a sale in Blackville at the United Church hall. This is an annual event that is well attended by crafters and shoppers alike.

This year I found a gem tucked in amoungst the home-baking and quilts.

Her name is Monika Saulnier.

Monika is 10 years old, cute as a button, and has recorded her own cd of country music. The cd’s, entitled Old Country Soul were produced at home with the help of her mother and sell for $12. Songs include old country favourites like Coat of Many Colours, Tennessee Flat-top Box, and Monika’s favourite, Daddy’s Hand.

Monika has been singing since she can remember and dreams to one day be on Canadian Idol… and when it happens, she’ll have my vote.

In addition to music, Monika loves horses & cats and after she gave me her sales pitch on purchasing a cd, she tried to get me to adopt this adorable little kitten.

Monika lives in Lockstead NB, in the Miramichi Region, where her parents operate Saddle Tramp Stables. To order a cd, contact her mother, Susan at 843-7994.
