What are your dreams for Canada? Westben explores the community’s response to this question as local and guest artists gather at The Barn for a special Canada Day celebration. Featuring an array of musicians ranging from Ojibwe drummer Jordan Mowat from Alderville, to the Westben Festival & Youth Choruses, to the Wakimi Wailers, the afternoon includes four sets of music as well as a meadow full of food and fun activities celebrating the Trent Hills community. Coordinated by Howard Baer, Andy Thompson, Ken Tizzard, Karen Stille and Brian Finley, expect brand new and familiar music in a spectacular musical tribute to Canada’s future.
