Hi folks,

Just a reminder that our Trio with me Katie and Bill Egnatoff will be performing a lunch concert at the Gan Playhouse on Sunday July 22nd from 1230 to 2pm.

Contact the Playhouse for ticket prices.

The concert is titled From Bach To The Rock. (The Rock being the nickname of Newfoundland which we perform Newfoundland folksong favourites) and everything in between.

Hope you can make it.
