If you’re looking for a way to gently wind down your summer, come out to the Shelter Valley Folk Festival in Grafton, Ontario on Labour Day weekend. It’s a labour of love for Northumberland, built by dedicated community members and music lovers.

I’ll be playing a workshop on the Saturday afternoon – “Songs of this land” with David Newland, Leonard Sumner, and Lennie Gallant.

Come see what we’re cooking up! Advance tickets are on sale now or same-day tickets can be purchased at the gate.

Turn back time
