The return of the hootenanny

byJeffGreen

A couple of years ago, a group of musicians began holding Hootenannies in Kingston and at the Maberly Hall. The events have a high spirited energy and the music is a mix of great Canadian Country and Bluegrass inflected tunes. The Hootenannies have always been well received and the concept has grown. Last year a western tour was organised, and this spring the hootenanny tour will be coming to Montreal , Toronto , Hamilton , Kingston , Guelph , and this Sunday, April 9, will be returning to the Maberly Hall.

Tickets will be available at the door and at Shadowfax in Perth for $18.00. The doors open at 7:30 and the show starts at 8.
