In 1984 Anne Lederman and Ian Bell created a unique recording of 19th century Ontario grassroots music for the 20th century. Now, we invite you to celebrate the re-release of that recording for the 21st, on CD for the first time. On November 17, at the Gladstone, they are inviting both musicians from the original recording and new musical friends from many places to "have a go" at the old music.

A Scottish strathspey on Carnatic violin? A bit of snare drum and cahon? Bagpipes and kalimba? Why not? Old Ontario folk music meets the new Ontario, a place that musicians from all over the world call home. Through the miracles of modern (1980s) technology, Anne and Ian did most of the original recording themselves on fiddles, guitars, mandolins, hammered dulcimer, smallpipes, piano, bass and voices.

They will take to the stage with Pat O'Gorman (Rare Air) on bagpipes, flutes and whistles, Jeff Bird (Tamarack, Cowboy Junkies) on bass, Tom Leighton (Haines and Leighton) on piano and accordion, Subhadra Vijaykumar on Carnatic violin (from south India) composer and percussionist Debashis Sinha, Daryl Williams (North York Steel Band) on pan, Laura Smith, and other surprise musical guests.Think Ontario has no folk music? Join us in the ballroom of the historic Gladstone Hotel in downtown Muddy York as the past meets the future. INFO: www.muddyyorkcd.ca

Apr 8 & 9 Want to sing with Tom Leighton??? Join us for: Sing 7 at Eaglewood, Pfferlaw, Ont with Tom Leighton and Carol Hasek.. This excellent choral weekend is organized by Margaret Almack It's very informal with lots of singing. You don't HAVE to have choral experience to enjoy yourself. Singing always makes you feel good and doing it with like minded people makes you feel even better!! Last years master classes with Carol were a BIG hit. They're sort of like eave dropping on a specific music lesson. That really puts the "theory" into a more relevant context. We perform a VERY informal concert followed by an open stage - mostly for ourselves though we make a CD which sounds pretty damn good considering the amount of practice time! Also there are some of Tom's chorale arrangements written JUST for us. Anyone who have been to the grounds at Eaglewood will remember how beautiful the site is, aaaaand it's still too early for bugs!! Here is Margeret's address for more information: rothalma@mail.ils.net
