WESTBEN OPEN AIR FALL FEST
SEPTEMBER 9TH – 25TH, 2022

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9TH AT 7 PM
Showman & Coole
AROUND THE CAMPFIRE
Through twenty years and a couple of thousand shows together in bands such as The Foggy Hogtown Boys and The Lonesome Ace Stringband, John Showman and Chris Coole have developed a deep and instinctual musical bond. Having performed across North America and Europe at festivals ranging from Merlefest to Mariposa, their music lurks around a truly unique space that is somewhere on the outskirts of old-time, bluegrass, and folk.
The Campfire: 6698 County Road 30, Campbellford, ON, K0L 1L0; 877-883-5777 www.westben.ca

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16TH AT 7 PM
Payne & Tizzard
Join us at The Campfire for an evening with Melissa Payne and Ken Tizzard. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear the stories behind the songs and of course some wonderful music from two of Northumberland’s finest singer/songwriters

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23RD AT 7 PM
Dave Gunning

Dave Gunning is best defined as a master craftsman. Over the course of 23 years and 12 albums, the Nova Scotian folk singer/songwriter has diligently sharpened his skills, developing into a poetic storyteller and emotionally convincing singer with few equals. davegunning.com
The Campfire: 6698 County Road 30, Campbellford, ON, K0L 1L0; 877-883-5777 www.westben.ca

Sounds in Nature Series - Spirit of the Forest
If you missed it last year, you’re in luck! The Spirit of the Forest returns for one day only: experience the deeply calming beauty of the Mary West Reserve on a guided walk through a magical forest filled with a gentle soundscape provided by Andy Thompson. What other beauty will you encounter?
Willow Hill: 6698 County Road 30, Campbellford, ON, K0L 1L0; 877-883-5777 www.westben.ca

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 17TH, 10 AM

Willow Hill: 6698 County Road 30, Campbellford, ON, K0L 1L0; 877-883-5777 www.westben.ca

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 24TH, 10 AM
Sounds in Nature Series - Forest Soundprints
Ground, move, listen, and feel renewed! Home to a myriad of wildlife, the Mary West Reserve is covered in everchanging footprints! Let a naturalist and a team of happy young dancers lead you along the sun-dappled forest paths as the musicians of Desert Quill supply a lovingly improvised soundtrack and series of sonic meditations. Perhaps there will be a few surprises along the way!
Willow Hill: 6698 County Road 30, Campbellford, ON, K0L 1L0; 877-883-5777 www.westben.ca

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10TH, 2 PM
Sarah Harmer
One of the most distinctive voices of the Canadian rock and folk music scenes, Sarah Harmer returns to Westben for another special concert. She has established herself among the pantheon of legendary female songwriters this country has produced. A dedicated environmentalist, Sarah Harmer’s latest release, “Oh Little Fire”, received accolades around the globe with 4-star reviews from the London Sunday Times to Winnipeg Free Press to The Washington Post and everywhere in between. Her solo debut, 2000’s “You Were Here”, was called the best debut of the year by Time magazine and Rolling Stone celebrated the CD’s “dozen killer songs.” Sarah received a Juno award for 2005’s “All Of Our Names” and her last release “I’m a Mountain” was nominated for the inaugural Polaris Music Prize.

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 18TH, 2 PM
Cardboard & Quill
What animates you? Are you meticulously detailed, or do you just take things as they come? Meet bekky O’Neill, the award-winning animator/farmer from Cardboard Reality in Roseneath as she shares some of her favourite animations on the big screen... And then there’s the Desert Quill Quartet – four adventurous musicians who bring the world around them searingly to life through spontaneous improvisation. Now imagine the meeting of these two incredibly creative worlds! Sometimes you know what you’re doing, but sometimes you just have to improvise... And as Martin DeMatt said, “The fun is always on the other side of a yes.”
The Barn: 6698 County Road 30, Campbellford, ON, K0L 1L0; 877-883-5777 www.westben.ca
