Small Halls, big plans for a sensational fall festival

We’re in full Festival mode now, after sharing the big news of our lineup in the last week of June.  We’re bringing more big Canadian music to more small halls than ever before – and we’re loving the response so far! Look here for an article from the Inside Ottawa Valley team.

Four shows have sold out already, in Chaffey’s Lock, Burritt’s Rapids and Union Hall in Mississippi Mills, and more are edging closer every day. Don’t wait to get your tickets! We’re looking forward to celebrating community with you in small halls across Eastern Ontario and the Ottawa Valley.

On that note, did you know there are currently two ways to get tickets? We’re pleased to offer online ticketing as well as a phone option. Look here for online tickets or give us a call from Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 613-402-1425 to order tickets by phone. If you call outside of those hours, just leave a message and we’ll return your call!

When groundbreaker LeE HARVeY OsMOND, Union Duke, LEAHY, The Weather Station, Madison Violet, roots music giant, Harry Manx and Sultans of String meet past festival favourites like the Devin Cuddy Band, Harrow Fair, Tomato Tomato and the uncompromising energy of Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm Boys – you know it’s a festival like no other. We’re shaking up the notion of what a rural, Canadian festival can accomplish!

Did you hear that Justin Rutledge, who we’ll welcome at the Chaffey’s Lock Community Hall and the Marble Arts Centre in Tweed, recently had his album, Passages, deemed one of the four best Canadian albums in the world right now by the Globe and Mail? Read it here and then get your tickets!

Hall hosts are also finalizing some brilliant community events surrounding shows, including delicious dinners, local wine tastings and intermission treats. Keep an eye here for all the details as the summer progresses and be sure to get in on the fun.

We have a few more announcements up our sleeves for the coming weeks involving our Chef’s Table events which will see friends, neighbours, visitors and locals break bread together in an open air country feast setting followed by a show. Featured food is prepared by masterful chefs who put heart and soul onto each plate to make local foods shine.

Stay tuned for an exciting summer – our musical plans are as hot as the temperature right now!
