Toronto has some beautiful, culturally rich neighbourhoods and the areas around the Beach and South Scarborough are no exception. The Kingston Rd., Birchcliff and Cliffside village communities, between Victoria Park on the west and Markham Rd. on the east, have the advantage of the majestic Bluffs overlooking Lake Ontario, but there's something more.....I'll let you in on a wee secret! There's a renowned monthly concert series, Acoustic Harvest, in it's 18th year of operation. Bringing the finest, local, regional, national and international, award-winning musicians to entertain and educate, this vibrant series has the mandate of bringing community together. Acoustic Harvest was started long ago by the late Rick Fielding, a multi-talented musician, story-teller, radio host of CIUT's Acoustic Workshop, to bring superb music to the East end of Toronto. Acoustic Harvest is located in the Robinson Hall of St. Nicholas Anglican church, at the NE corner of Kingston Rd. and Manderley Drive, one block east of Warden Ave.
Consummate artists are featured every month, there is a delectable dessert table at intermission and folks enjoy meeting friends, old and new. We are truly blessed to have such virtuoso performers grace our stage, enriching us with a cornucopia of music ranging from Traditional and Contemporary Folk to Blues, Celtic, Bluegrass/ Old Time/ Appalachian, Singer-Songwriter, Jazz and World music...a great eclectic mix! And all in a lovely, cozy setting that fosters the building of friendships, community spirit and a love of music and the arts.
