The Last Hoedown A Celebration of High Lonesome Wednesday at the Silver Dollar

The legendary weekly bluegrass residency "High Lonesome Wednesday" ran for 20 years, and featured some of Canada's top roots musicians. Founded by Dan Whiteley and Stef Fantin (1972-2015), the band's members became a rotating collective that, at times included, Jenny Whiteley, Joey Wright, Brian Baron, Dottie Cormier, Victor Bateman, Marc Roy, and for the last 15 years, The Foggy Hogtown Boys. Apart from entertaining thousands of fans over the years, HLW became the centre of what's become an active bluegrass scenes in Toronto, one that rivals any American city or town. The Last Hoedown will celebrate that community by bringing together many of Toronto's top bluegrass bands for a 'one night bluegrass festival". The event is scheduled to coincide with the last Wednesday Toronto's historic Silver Dollar will be open.

Carters and Cash - The Foggy Hogtown Boys

Roberts Creek Community Hall, 1309 Roberts Creek Rd, , Sechelt, BC

Online sales are closed. There will be tickets at the door...so show up! Carters and Cash The Foggy Hogtown Boys Salute the Music of The Carter Family and Johnny Cash

July 5 - The Roberts Creek Community Hall

Discovered in 1927 at the legendary "Bristol Sessions" in Bristol TN, The Carter Family's music had a profound impact on bluegrass, country, Southern Gospel, pop and rock musicians as well as on the U.S. folk revival of the 1960s. Johnny Cash, who married into this "First Family of Country Music" in 1968 is widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century.

The Foggy Hogtown Boys have become a Canadian bluegrass and roots music institution. Their sound has influenced what's become a vibrant and youthful bluegrass scene in this country. From the band's legendary 17 year residency at Toronto's Silver Dollar Room; tours across Canada, the U.S., Europe and Israel; teaching instrumental workshops across the county; as well as individually recording as sidemen on hundreds of of albums, it is fair to say they have made their mark on the Canadian musical landscape.

In "Carters and Cash" the band pays tribute to the music of The Carter Family and Johnny Cash in their unique bluegrass and old-time music style.
