Liverpool is looking a little more musical, thanks to the latest Successful Women Inspiring Forward Thinking (SWIFT) initiative. Musical notes have been popping up around downtown Liverpool, in anticipation of Nova Scotia Music Week.

Liverpool is looking very musical, thanks to SWIFT.
In total 45 musical notes will decorate the poles around Liverpool, going from Frenchy's to the Liverpool Pizzeria and down Bristol Avenue to the Best Western Hotel.
It took a community to create the notes as well. Bill Rhyno from Bill's Wood Art cut and sealed the notes. Members of SWIFT borrowed the studio in Conopeum Art to paint them. The wood was provided by Music Nova Scotia and paint by J&H Industries.
Langille says they wanted to see something on Main Street when the hanging baskets came down and before the wreaths are put up in November.
"It is something to support Nova Scotia Music Week and Main Street and make it look good until the wreaths go up," she says.
As long as the notes hold up against the weather, she adds, they could be reused for other musical festivals too.
Some may have noticed the SWIFT sign on Jubilee Street was missing a section recently. That was due to strong winds, says SWIFT member Taryn Jollimore. It is in the process of being repaired and will soon be put back up with the Nova Scotia Music Week logo on it as well.
