VIDEO: 87 year old piano player continues to entertain area seniors

'Music is my life'

The music doesn't stop for Loreen Knight, who at 87 years old keeps up a busy performance schedule at retirement homes (and church) in the Sault and area.

Loreen is a passionate music lover, who wants to continue playing for people as long as she possibly can. Her weekly appearances currently include performances with three different bands at a number of venues in the Algoma region. 

She has a storied and impressive musical career, which includes inductions into the Northern Ontario Country Music Hall of Fame and the Great Northern Opry.

Loreen is not only a renowned musical talent, but is also an active community member who has been recognized by countless organizations over the years for her volunteer contributions--even being named Citizen of the Year by the town of Bruce Mines.

SooToday cameras caught up with Loreen at a recent show to learn more.
