The Forest Festival is in full swing at this time. It kicked off last evening with the Operetic Excerpts Concert, followed tonight by the sold out Jim Cuddy Trio Concert. Don’t dismay .. there are still plenty of tickets available online for all the other shows. Here is the line up:
Friday 8 p.m. — John McDermott featuring Jason Fowler
Saturday 2 p.m. — Hilario Duran and Jane Bunnett
Saturday 8 p.m. — Amanda Martinez and Her Band
Sunday 2 p.m. — Beebop Cowboys
Sunday 8 p.m. — The Suzie Vinnick Trio featuring Rick Fines
Just letting everyone know that the Suzie Vinnick tickets that were on auction were won for a mere $40! A great deal for that savvy bidder. The 2 Jim Cuddy tickets that were paired with a meet and greet with Jim, preferred seating and a signed poster went for $400. We are working with our website designer to find a way to have completed auctions left up on the page so people can see the winning bids. Until we can accomplish that please keep an eye on the blog for such news.
Remember that the other 2 sets of Jim Cuddy tickets that are in support of the Arts Council Haliburton Highlands are still on the auction block .. just one more day .. last chance to get tickets!! These don’t come with the extra perks of the first pair but, the show will look great from wherever you sit!
There are still tickets left for all the other performances at The Forest Festival which starts on Wednesday. Please buy them at www.MadeInHaliburton.ca .
Thanks to the kindness of a local resident there are two tickets being auctioned off using the new www.MadeInHaliburton.ca auction feature. In addition to the tickets the “winner” of the auction item will get to meet Jim Cuddy, have preferred seating for an event that does not have designated seating, and receive a Haliburton Forest poster that is signed by Jim Cuddy. The concert takes place at the Bone Lake Amphitheatre which is a truly magical setting for an outdoor concert. There is a floating stage on a lake in the middle of a forest. The stars twinkle above and the air is crisp and clear. The music resonates with the natural environment in a way that is simply not able to be described — it must be experienced.
Better yet, the proceeds from this auction will go to the Volunteer Dental Outreach Program. This program offers dental services to people in the Haliburton Highlands who would otherwise be unable to afford such care.
Please consider bidding on this auction item and helping out the Volunteer Dental Outreach Program.
John McDermott is performing at The Forest Festival at the Haliburton Forest in the Haliburton Highlands, Ontario Canada on Friday August 17th at the Bone Lake Amphitheatre. If you have not experienced a performance in the Bone Lake Amphitheatre you don’t know what you are missing. There is something very magical about the combination of music and nature that cannot be described — only experienced. Add to that the quality of the music of John McDermott and you have a winning combination. If you have never heard him sing please watch this utube video for a sample. Tickets can now be purchased online at www.MadeInHaliburton.ca .
Tickets for the Forest Festival can now be purchased at www.MadeInHaliburton.ca . If you have never taken in the Forest Festival it is a very magical event that is well worth taking the time to attend. Imagine experiencing the music of excellent, well-known performers in the middle of the forest with the backdrop of a lake. During the evening performances, at the amphitheatre location, you can watch the sun set during the concert. It is amazing to watch the twilight settle on the forest and lake while taking in the music. As the evening progresses the star-filled sky surrounds you as you relax and listen. The location of the amphitheatre in the middle of the forest means that there is absolutely no light pollution and thus, the stars are more visible than in other locations. On a clear night you can see the whole of the Milky Way.
