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 .
Why not take a trip to Minden and meet George Farrell at the www.MadeInHaliburton.ca gallery. George will have his cameras with him and be ready to demonstrate photographic techniques and talk about his views on the camera as a tool, with respect to framing and composition, use of shadow and a bit about abstract photography. If you are at all interested in photography this is a great opportunity.

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 .
