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.
