Since April, we have been taking you backstage at the Ontario Festival of Small Halls through our Small Talk blog feature. From announcing the 2017 line up, to learning more about the amazing small halls across Eastern Ontario and the Ottawa Valley, 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 2016 Festival of Small Halls here. For more inspiration, take another peek at our wrap up video from last year, too!
Email your memories from the 2016 Festival of Small Halls to firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear from you!
