Gil’s Hootenanny: Songs of Protest, Songs of Hope
Gil’s Hootenanny is a community sing-along event that takes place each year on May Day, the international workers’ holiday. Musicians from a range of backgrounds take turns leading the audience to sing songs of protest and songs of hope. The event was inspired by Gil Levine (1924-2009), the founding Director of Research at the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) and a great lover of folk music. The headliner this year is singer-songwriter Eve Goldberg. Tuesday May 1 at Clarke Hall in the RA Centre. More information and tickets here (http://gilshootenanny

Each Monday night at 7:00 pm we hold our Open Stage at the Whispers pub in Westboro. And on Tuesdays at 7:00 pm it’s the Folk-along Jam at the Vimy Brewing Company.
