The Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour began its artistic journey in the late seventies, when sculptor Richard Green, joined by a few friends, first developed the innovative concept. Dedicated to the belief that a piece of art is best understood when the viewer can meet the creator, the original members of the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour enthusiastically opened their studio doors and shared not only their finished work, but also the processes behind it. Through discussion, demonstrations and displays, visitors to the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour were able to deepen their understanding and appreciation for a multitude of artistic mediums and techniques. Over the past 40 years, the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour has seen a continued evolution, presenting only the finest professional artists and craftspeople working within Muskoka. There is always something new to discover, from well-designed functional items to expressive fine art.

His latest, highly-acclaimed album Everybody Wants A Piece, from Mascot/Provogue, cements his legacy as a prolific torch bearer for the blues. Looking back on his rich history, Walker shares, “I’d like to be known for the credibility of a lifetime of being true to my music and the blues. Sometimes I feel I’ve learned more from my failures, than from my successes, but that’s made me stronger and more adventurous, and helped me create my own style. I’d like to think that when someone puts on one of my records they would know from the first notes, ‘That’s Joe Louis Walker.’”

Featuring Jay Douglas, John Finley & George Olliver
LEGENDS of the TORONTO Sound!
Direct from Yonge St. Toronto, 1966, when the sounds of the Mandala with front man George Olliver, the Checkmates with John Finley, and the incredible tones of the one and only Jay Douglas were pumping out into the streets from many legendary hot spots.
A musical time that changed the landscape of downtown Toronto, now with two, 22-storey murals that pay tribute to that era and to these three artists. In honour of this legacy, we are proud to bring you this All Star R & B Revue, LEGENDS of the TORONTO Sound, featuring these three incredible artists backed by an all-star band of musicians from the era. Danny Weis (Rhinoceros, Bette Midler, Iron Butterfly) guitar, Michael Sloski (Bruce Cockburn, The Checkmates) drums, Howard Ayee (Rough Trade, Domenic Troiano Band) bass, with Simon Wallis (Lighthouse) saxes and Dave Dunlop (Boss Brass) trumpet.
Let us take you back in time!
It takes a brave artist to rip it up and start again. Anyone who has followed the life and times of Dana Fuchs will know this fearless New Yorker has always broken the boundaries in pursuit of art and truth. Now, she blazes her own trail with Love Lives On: the hotly anticipated fourth album on which she bursts defiant from her darkest days with a sound inspired by the siren-call of American soul. “It’s a new beginning for me in every way,” Dana explains. “I’m looking forward to starting chapter two…”
Brass Transit was formed in 2008 and brought together 8 of the most talented and accomplished award winning musicians. Their sole purpose was to pay tribute to one of the world’s greatest and most successful pop/rock groups of all time, CHICAGO.
Since then, the group has toured North America dazzling audiences with their flawless performances and spectacular attention to every detail of the CHICAGO songbook. Hits like: Saturday In The Park, 25 or 6 To 4, If You Leave Me Now, You’re The Inspiration have left crowds in awe and on their feet more than once during a show, evoking comments like “Spine-‐Tingling” “Brought me back to my youth” and “Perfect in every detail”. Brass Transit goes far beyond just imitating the songs, they embody the music.
They recently produced their first CD taking top hits from the 70’s and recording them with horns in the CHICAGO style. The result is a fresh approach to some of the greatest hits of that era. They have also just recently scored their show for full Symphony with luscious orchestral arrangements that are truly spellbinding.
Brass Transit will bring you back to the most memorable times of your life.

The old Willie Dixon adage, “blues is truth,” perfectly describes the searing, contemporary blues-rock of world-renowned guitarist and vocalist Coco Montoya. Taught by the “Master of the Telecaster,” Albert Collins, but with a hard-edged sound and style all his own, Montoya mixes his forceful, melodic guitar playing and passionate vocals with memorable songs, delivering the blues’ hardest truths. He earned his status as a master guitarist and soul-powered vocalist through years of paying his dues as a sideman with Collins (first as a drummer) and then with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, before launching his solo career in 1993. Five years of constant touring with Collins and ten years with Mayall turned him into a monster player and dynamic performer. Montoya has released eight solo albums—including three for Alligator between 2000 and 2007—and has played at clubs, concert halls and major festivals all over the world. Guitar Player says Montoya plays “stunning, powerhouse blues with a searing tone, emotional soloing, and energetic, unforced vocals.”
