Open Tuning virtual edition

Open Tuning, Toronto’s Free Music Festival, can’t come to the porches and laneways of Seaton Village this year due to COVID-19 precautions. But the festival is coming to your phones and computers.

Participating musicians will be posting their performance times using #Opentuning20. On June 6, search out the hashtag, then check out some amazing music.

Open Tuning is the biggest event of the year for the band I play with, Sore Boozers. We haven’t played together in months, and I miss my fellow musicians tons. I decided to record some songs that I would have brought to practice if things were normal. These videos will be posted on Facebook and Instagram tomorrow morning (June 6).

Rob Elliott, second accordionist with perennial Open Tuning band Sore Boozers, performs some Old Tyme New Wave on the ukulele.

Pigeon colouring page

I drew this pigeon-themed colouring page for the Flying Pony’s final round of baked goods deliveries this weekend. If you know Pony owner Andrew Horne, you know he has a hate/love relationship with our feral flying friends.

The Flying Pony, Gerrard Street’s fun and friendly coffee house/gallery, is taking a break until July.
Here’s Andrew’s message on Instagram:

Hi Folks, we are currently closed. The Flying Pony Cafe will be reopening completely early July with a renewed energy.
Thanks for the huge support from our community. We miss all our regulars & we look forward to seeing you in person, soon under less stressful arrangements as we approach the return to normality.
We will post updates. Keep being kind.

Don’t let that make you sad. Look at Andrew’s new beagle puppy instead!
