Print Email

McGregor-OFC-Janes-Walk-2013Borealis Records presents Folks for the Folklore Centre – an evening in support of the Ottawa Folklore Centre July 31, 2014 at the Southminster Church in Old Ottawa South (note the change of venue from the previously announced Wesleyan Church).

Ottawa area performers will take to the stage in support of the Ottawa Folklore Centre (OFC) – the unofficial community centre for regional roots musicians, which has fallen on hard times. The concert will feature performances by Lynn Miles, Sneezy Waters, James Keelaghan, Terry Tufts & Kathryn Briggs, Finest Kind with James Stephens, and many of OFC’s friends and teachers.

In addition to selling and repairing musical instruments and offering music lessons and performance opportunities, the Ottawa Folklore Centre has served as an administrative headquarters for projects such as the Canadian Folk Music Awards, for which OFC owner Arthur McGregor was a founding board member.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased via the OFC e-store, by phone at 613-730-2887, or in person at OFC at 1111 Bank Street in Old Ottawa South.
