Sorry to miss the pre-session reminder last week: things have been a bit mad. Glad a lot of you made it anyway, and we were thrilled to welcome two new players!
We wanted to let you know about a couple of things that are happening in the near-ish future, so you can participate if you are interested.
- On Tuesday, October 24th, both the Scott Library (York) and the Music Library (UofT) will be hosting a Wikipedia contribution event on the theme of Canada 150: Music and belonging. To participate, all you need is a (free) Wikipedia username. We’re not sure if any of you would like to participate, adding information on traditional French-Canadian (or other) music, but we thought we’d mention it.
- The second event happens right after our next session: at 4 pm on Sunday, November 19. The Hart House Singers will present a free concert of folk songs of Canada, accompanied by Louis Schryer (fiddle) and Erin Leahy (piano) as well as Conrad Gold, conducted by David Amot-Johnston. As at all their concerts, they do a collection of non-perishable food items in support of the U of T food bank.
- And, remember, the BalFolk dance evenings have started up again.
As always, if you hear of anything else, let us know and we’ll pass the word.
Rob and Donna
