Connect your heart to a horse...

Garnet Rogers is one of Canada's busiest folk musicians traveling across North America with thoughtful, dramatic stories that are full of compelling insight and seasoned with laughter. Garnet signs extraordinary songs about people who are not obvious heroes and of the small victories of the everyday.
This concert will also be a fundraiser for Home Base Housing , a non-profit organization that operates In From the Cold Emergency Shelter and Lily's Place Family Shelter . Between the two shelters, 48 individuals can find temporary accommodations and receive assistance in securing and maintaining housing. Part of the Home For the Holidays campaign, the opportunity to donate to this multi-service agency that also provides direct assitance through the following programs: Housing First, Housing Help Centre, Kingston Youth Services, Prevention Diversion and Supportive Housing. Visit the website at www.kingstonhomebase.ca for more information.
Above is a picture of Garnet when I was first introduced to his brother, Stan's, music at The Scarecrow, a vegetarian restaurant in 1983. Garnet has assembled his experience of traveling with Stan - a Canadian folk legend in his own right - into page-turning book called Night Drive which will be available at the concert in addition to his music.
I enjoy Garnet best in concert because of his lively storytelling abilities and poignant songs.
If anyone would like to purchase tickets in advance, they can do so SOON. I wil update once that option is available.
Hope you can come out for an enjoyable evening of songs and stories - and to help families and individuals who are staying at the shelters.
Use the CONTACT US option if you have specific questions.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
P.S. I work for Home Base Housing as my "real" job. It's an amazing organization to work for and truly compassionate, dedicated staff who make such a difference in the lives of those for whom we work - clients and tenants.
