Join us for a beautiful concert on labour day, as we bid farewell to another summer. The evening will feature music from Ansley Simpson and a special reading by Arif Mirbaghi.
We are excited to welcome singer-songwriter Ansley Simpson to our garden stage for the first time! Her haunting voice and songs will bring a beautiful end to the summer season.
Arif Mirbaghi is well-known in Toronto for his many contributions to our musical and theatrical communities. We wait with anticipation to see what sort of reading Arif has in store for us!
Dinner starts at 5:30pm, music at 7.
This is a pay-what-you-can show — please bring some cash for the artists!
More about Ansley:
«Ansley Simpson is a Toronto-based Anishinaabe singer-songwriter and inaugural winner of the BullsEye Media Emerging Artist award from ImagineNATIVE and Slaight Music. Her much anticipated debut album “Breakwall” is a gentle, powerful collection of songs that showcase her lilting vocals, clear melodic sensibility, and intricate guitar playing to moving effect. Ansley immerses the listener in a swelling, soft symphony of emotion that builds in gentle intensity over the course of the album’s nine tracks. She is a natural performer, holding audiences spellbound with her haunting vocals and poetics. “Ansley’s lyrical hymns to love, presence, and possibility entwine you in an unfolding, sonic world of her own making. This is music to guide you back to the shore, when you’ve been lost too long in the waves.” (RPM.fm)
