One of the best things we have ever done, was to play the Mariposa Festival in Orillia this past July. We played four different times, sharing the stage with the likes of Ken Whiteley, The Good Lovelies, The Fugitives, Guy Davis, Enoch Kent, Fred Penner, Dave Wall, Ben Whiteley, Bucky Berger.... and the list goes on. We marvelled at performances by Daniel Lanois, Luc Doucet, The Skydiggers, The Proclaimers, Steven Page, Royal Wood, and more. Brad met the Reid brothers from The Proclaimers and we hung out backstage with Daniel Lanois. What could be cooler? We were treated extremely well, met fantastic people and enjoyed fabulous live music under a cooler than normal July sky. What better way to kick off the summer!!!
Thanks once again to Cher MacNeill for the great performance shots!!
Wow!! I just got my hands on these photos. Jeff Woods (the oldest of the Woods boys) throws a street party every June in Riverdale - east end of downtown Toronto. The street is closed off to traffic, the bbq's come out, they open up the fire hydrant for the kids to run through, and most recently - the GWT stages a bit of a concert on Jeff's front lawn. Neighbours, locals and passersby hung out and enjoyed a cool one on one of the first warm days of the summer.
It's been said before but this time it's really true -
a good time was had by all!
Thanks to Ryan Barwell for the great photos!!

On Saturday March 7, we had the pleasure of performing at HOPE FELLOWSHIP CHURCH in Courtice Ontario. HOPE FELLOWSHIP was hosting a 10th Anniversary Community Dinner Party. Special thanks to Carl Feddema for arranging the evening and who took us out for cheap laffs and Ultimate Fighting later that evening.
Awesome photos by David G.

On Sunday June 15, we held the final Great Wooden Trio CD Launch party at The Bread and Circus Theater and Bar in Kensington Market, downtown Toronto. Once again, there was a massive early summer thundershower that made getting down to Kensington somewhat of a challenge. Thanks to all who did brave the rain and lightning and made it out that night. Opening for us was the brilliant comedy of Peter Stevens - we're still quoting some of his genius lines. Joining us again was David White, mandolin player extraordinaire and a host of close Toronto friends who quite frankly, storm or no storm, filled the narrow little bar in Kensington. Here are some more Cher MacNeill pics from that evening - thanks Cher!! Thanks also to Scott "buzz-killer" Francisco for taking matters into his own hands. We could use a guy like you in our organization.
