Did you make memories at last year’s Festival?

1D0A8291_editFor the past 10 weeks, we have been taking you backstage at the Festival of Small Halls through our new Small Talk blog feature. From announcing our line up, to learning more about the amazing small halls across Eastern Ontario, we have touched on aspects of the Festival from our point of view.

Now we want to hear from you!

We’re interested in hearing some memories, feelings and overall perspective from some of our audience members who took in a show at last year’s Festival of Small Halls. What did the intimate spaces with heritage and heart add to your concert? Which band did you see and how did it move you? What was it like to see a big name in music in a small, rural setting?

If you need a refresher, please look at some photos from our 2015 Festival of Small Halls here.

Email your memories from the 2015 Festival of Small Halls to publicity@ontariosmallhalls.com with your name and phone number for a chance to be featured in a later edition of our blog and newsletter! We would love to hear from you.

It’s also a great opportunity to let the new venues on the roster know how inspiring these shows can be. We’re looking forward to another hand-clapping, toe-tapping, knee slapping good time in September and October – in 24 rural locales.

In other Festival news, we were pleased to announce another show in Chaffey’s Lock last week after the first sold out shortly after tickets went on sale. The April Verch Band is now playing the opening show there of the Festival of Small Halls on Wednesday, Sept. 14 at 7:30 p.m., where it will start off the 2016 festival on the right note with an energetic and fiery fiddle performance. April is also performing on Sept. 17 at the Pembroke Festival Hall as well as a matinee show on Sept. 18 at the Morton Community Hall at 3 p.m.! Her shows are quickly selling so don’t hesitate to get your tickets. Click here for more information and ticketing info.
