I hope you are all well, I have had an amazing week at the Folk Music Ontario conference which was held in Toronto this year, so good to catch up with many old friends and meet some new ones, look out for some amazing music coming on the station over the next few weeks, I received over 70 new albums / EP's in our dropbox so I'll be busy for a while.
Thank you to the board of directors and staff at Folk Music Ontario for a well organized and informative weekend.
Also, thanks to Neale at The Hilton Hotel who upgraded us to a suite on arrival, good things happen to good people they say, what an amazing couple of rooms we were allocated which added to the amazing time we had.
I've been pretty busy catching up with scheduling and making sure the wheels keep turning, that's the problem with going away, you have to catch up on returning to the frey.
Four Chords and The Truth
I am now looking forward to November 23rd which is the next big event for us in Toronto, Andrea England has another stellar line up waiting in the wings to grace the stage at The Dakota Tavern, tickets started selling back in September for this event and it's advised to get yours early if you are in the Toronto area, if you have not heard of it, or have heard but never attended, I would highly recommend coming along and seeing some of the cream of Canada's songwriters up close and personal.
Four Chords & The Truth is a quarterly series of “ in the round ” sessions with leading songwriters — modelled on Nashville’s famous Bluebird Cafe sessions but with a greater range of musical genres — which debuted at Toronto’s Dakota Tavern on June 18, 2015.
The series is presented in partnership with Jack Daniel’s.
