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.
This year’s performances include John McDermott, The Jim Cuddy Trio, Amanda Martinez, Russell deCarle and the Bebop Cowboys, Hilario Duran and Jane Bunnett, Suzie Vinnick and Excerpts from the Highlands Opera Studio. There is something for everyone in this vast array of expert musicians.
