Freewheelin’ folk music series moves to the Carnegie Gallery

News Sep 04, 2009 Ancaster News

The Carnegie Gallery has teamed up with the Freewheelin’ Concert series to present an exciting season of folk music concerts featuring some of Canada's best acoustic and roots performers.

For the past two years the Freewheelin' Concerts have been held in Hamilton at the Downtown Arts Centre, but this year four shows will be held at the Carnegie Gallery, all on Saturday nights.

On Sept. 19 Suzie Vinnick will perform. She is one of Canada’s best female singer songwriters and sings the Tim Hortons jingle.

On Nov. 14, hometown singer songwriter Nathan Rogers returns. His father, legendary folk singer Stan Rogers, grew up and lived in Dundas, but Nathan has carved out a strong reputation all his own.

The one and only Valdy comes to the Carnegie Gallery on Jan. 23, and finishing up the series will be The Laws on April 10.

The concerts are all fundraisers to help out with the new atrium addition planned for the gallery. While the gallery has had many classical concerts in previous years, this is the first venture into folk music.

Jim Marino, host of the Freewheelin' Folk Show on 93.3 CFMU radio, says Dundas is a real hotbed for acoustic roots and folk music.

"Many of my listeners live in the Valley Town and with such excellent acoustics in the Carnegie Gallery, they are sure to have a fabulous time."

Subscriptions for all four shows are available for $75 directly from the gallery or by credit card at 905-627-4265. Individual tickets are also available at the Carnegie Gallery or Bryan Prince Bookseller in Westdale.
