The Canadian Guitar Festival in Kingston has released some of it's amazing artists

July 24, 25 and 26

Also appearing in the competition component of the festival is our own Yeman Al-Rawi.  Yeman has opened for Michael Chapdelaine and Calum Graham.  All the best! 

If you are planning to attend the Canadian Festival in Kingston Ontario there are a few folks who might be interested in Ride sharing.  Please post your info on our facebook page.  Also VIA Rail goes to Kingston and this is not the typical Canadian Holiday weekend so there should be seats on the train and less traffic in Toronto (if that's possible)
