These emotions will be shown from a woman’s perspective.”

Every now and then, you run across someone with a library’s worth of stories to tell. But unlike the raconteurs who regale friends with well-embellished versions of their exploits, these storytellers have lived so much, they reveal chapters of their hard-won wisdom slowly, carefully, like layers peeled from an onion.
Ray Bonneville didn’t even open his storybook until his early 40s, some 20 years after he started performing. But with a style that sometimes draws comparisons to JJ Cale and Daniel Lanois, this blues-influenced, New Orleans-inspired “song and groove man,” as he’s been so aptly described, luckily found his rightful calling.

The band started as an impromptu jam in a partied out kitchen in Parkdale, but now Freeman Dre & the Kitchen Party is one of Toronto’s most exciting and consistent live acts. Whether in barrooms, theatres, house parties, or festivals the band delivers while attentive crowds raise their glasses and sing along with favourites from the group’s four releases (2010’s Red Door Second Floor, 2012’s Old Town, the digital-only release 2015’s Vodka/Pickle EP, and 2017’s Wreckless Good Intentions).
For Micheal Zarowsky, paintings of water form a visual language of their own. “It is my coming to know, through studied detailed isolation of form, of the essence of ponds, rivers, streams and lakes of the Ontario North,” says Micheal who has developed a distinctive way of seeing and conveying the world’s beauty that pushes towards abstraction. “The paintings are an expression of the distances to which I was able to lose myself, lose my edges, becoming one with the moment wherever it found me, while interacting and realizing the world around me.”

Shortly after coming to Canada, Robi caught the ear of Canadian Jazz great Oscar Peterson and quickly became his protégé. To this day, Robi remains a disciple of Dr. Peterson’s mighty sense of swing and technical virtuosity. Along with this influence, Robi possesses a deep tradition in Romani, Hungarian and European Folk and Classical music. This fusion of North American Bebop, Hard Bop, and Modern Jazz along with the deep tradition of Folk music in Eastern Europe and Romantic Classical music, has formulated a sound and approach that is formidable and unsurpassed. Many of Jazz’s greatest musicians consider Robi to be one of the few young leaders on the piano worldwide.

On August 15, 2018 we will mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the steamer Kenozha. Built at Gravenhurst, she joined the Muskoka & Nipissing Navigation Company fleet in 1883.
In the July 14, 1887 issue of the Toronto paper World, Kenozha was “said to be the fastest ship on the lakes.” She carried 250 passengers, including in 1884, the Marquis of Lansdowne, who was touring Muskoka in the company of A. P. Cockburn.
Muskoka Steamer Historian, Richard Tatley will make the night of August 15, 1918 come alive, as he did in this sketch.
