Good Moring All, I have some friends staying over today and we all have our hot brown drinks in hand and listening to some uninterrupted folk--REALLY looking forward to the OGF next week!!!

What is the location of the Legion where the festival is? Street address? I love the idea of a "petting zoo" for instruments, and also a francophone evening. I have learned about the music of Quebec from Jim Corcoran's show A Propos on CBC, but I don't think he covers franco-Ontarian. Looking forward to this, hoping it's on a bus route....

OK thanks. Somerset is a few blocks south on Kent Street from transit way... and I think no. 2 bus goes along Somerset.

Thanks for leading off with Feather, Fur and Fin... for me this was a segue from having seen "Merchants of Doubt" at Bytowne last night... Powerful song, an anthem for environmental responsibility...

Thanks to Google maps, 330 Kent is actually at corner of Kent and McLaren, actually - so get off no. 2 bus at Kent and walk south one block.
