Gil’s Hootenanny (http://gilshootenanny NULL.ca) is a community sing-along event that takes place each year on May Day, the international day of working people. Invited musicians lead the audience to sing along on songs of protest and songs of hope.

Gil’s Hootenanny was inspired by Gil Levine (1924-2009), the founding national Director of Research at the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) and a great lover of folk music. Gil’s vision of a better world included bringing people together to experience the collective power of song and to celebrate the stories, struggles and victories of working people. Gil saw May Day as an important time for working people around the world to gather together, speak up and sing out.

Details of this year’s program are to be announced later.
