That was our second concert at Beach United, we’ve loved being there, and thanks again to David Lewis, Operations Manager, for his cheerful and willing help. Although I think we might be keeping David as he’s coming with us to our first concert at St. Paul’s United Church (www.stpaulsscarborough.org).
Reverend Dan Benson was recently the subject of an article in The Bluffs Monitor (bluffsmonitor.com) which will give you some idea of the warm welcome waiting for us at St. Paul’s.
On October 13 we partner again with Patio Records (patiorecords.com) for the annual Healing Gardens concert to raise funds for a Garden of Solace to be built at Mackenzie Health Centre (www.mackenziehealth.ca). To give you some background, before Mary Eagan passed away in 1992 she asked her husband, Terry, to direct any money raised in her honour to build beautiful gardens to give peace and comfort to cancer patients. Terry has done just that and you can meet him at the concert, he never misses one.
Archie Fisher & Garnet Rogers In Concert – Farewell Tour
On October 13th we’re proud to present two icons of folk music, from Scotland, Archie Fisher and our Canadian, Garnet Rogers. These two friends have been playing and touring together since 1985 but all good things come to an end, or so they say, and this will be their final tour, definitely this is one concert you shouldn’t miss. I’d encourage you to book your ticket in advance because the last time Garnet appeared at Acoustic Harvest the show was sold out and we had to turn people away at the door. Scott Merritt will be recording the event.
The Folk Music Ontario conference (www.folkmusicontario.ca) took place September 27-30 and Lillian and Judy were there representing Acoustic Harvest. This is an important event for the folk, roots and traditional music community; held over four days, it’s an opportunity to catch up with old friends and to see new performers. It's also a chance to compare notes with other presenters and attend seminars and workshops. We’re always looking for ways to improve and are open to your suggestions, so let us have your feedback, please.
Finally, we’d like to thank Elinor Mahoney for her generous donation to Acoustic Harvest. It's much appreciated. We are still looking for sponsors so if you’re interested or have any suggestions please let us know.

Please join these fine artists for the 8th Annual Healing Garden benefit concert to raise funds for a Healing Garden of solace and peace, for Cancer patients at the MacKenzie Health Foundation in Richmond Hill, Ontario.
This endeavour is the brain-child of Terry Eagan, Patio Records, Boston MA, and to date, Healing Gardens have been created at: The Childrens' Hospital Boston, MA, the Renfrew Victoria Hospital, ON, and The Ottawa Regional Cancer Center. Another garden is currently under construction at the Queensway Carleton Hospital in Ottawa, ON and groundbreaking began in April 2018 for the $1.2 million dollar garden at the Mt. Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, MA.
Please support this very worthy cause and enjoy some of the world's finest musicians.
Please join us for this very special evening.
Lillian, Terry and the AH Team
