Kim Stoneburg, Chair for the Membership Committee, has been busy looking for new performance opportunities for our members. Over the past several months she has researched more than 55 festivals and 391 fairs that happen throughout the year in Ontario that embrace live music. We are hoping that we can duplicate the success we have had with Lucknow’s Music in the Fields and Havelock Country Jamboree that will give our members an opportunity to perform at their very successful events.
