Festival of Small Halls coming to Eastern Ontario

FOSH.Website.listing.imageMAYREV

The Festival of Small Halls is returning to Eastern Ontario this weekend, beginning with a show in Brockville.

The Ontario FOSH is about sharing a love of music in a beloved place. Organized by the same team as the Bluesfest, the Festival of Small Halls brings exceptional Canadian musicians to small venues across Eastern Ontario.

"Every small community has one: a treasured building that brings people together for town meetings, community dinners, bingo games, local theatre, book sales—and the list goes on. These buildings have rich cultural histories and countless stories to tell. No two are alike. During the festival, communities across Eastern Ontario will throw open the doors of their small halls for an unforgettable night of music. Some of Canada’s best musicians will step off the big stage and hit the scenic back roads to perform in legions, schools, churches, or town halls. They will receive a warm, small-town welcome from communities of music lovers who are eager to show off their treasured halls and their hospitality, all in the name of excellent music." - ontariosmallhalls.com
