Backwoodsmen - LIVE in Concert!
Stone Hall, Havelock
6713 ON-7, Havelock, ON K0L 1Z0, Canada
Pineapple Productions is excited to announce the third concert for our Stone Hall Sessions 2023 Season in Havelock, Ontario - featuring Backwoodsmen revisiting traditional Ontario folk songs.
Peterborough County has one of North America's richest folk-song traditions. Between 1929 and 1959, internationally recognized scholars documented more than 3,000 orally transmitted folk songs in the region. This little known piece of local history is presented by Backwoodsmen.
Backwoodsmen is Al Kirby on dobro and guitar, John Bird on recorders, banjo-ukulele and washboard, Rob Cory on guitar and harmonica, and Rob Niezen on guitar and mandolin. The group created contemporary arrangements and adapted lyrics, resulting in Cross Cut - a double CD and an illustrated songbook.
PLEASE NOTE: Advance ticket sales end at midnight on Saturday, March 25. Advance tickets are not available on the day of the event.
