OTTAWA, Ontario (CelebrityAccess) — The organizers of Ontario Festival of Small Halls announced plans to welcome music fans back to rural venues across Eastern Ontario during the holiday season.
For 2021, the festival plans to present a lineup that includes Juno-award winning artist Kellylee Evans, Royal Wood, Sam Drysdale, and Silent Winters.
Additionally, for 2021, festival organizers are planning a ‘Big Hall’ experience developed in partnership with the National Arts Centre that will include multiple evenings of music with artists such as Skydiggers, Jill Barber & A Gathering of Friends, Matt Mays, Jim Bryson, Amaka Umeh, Ansley Simpson and Charlie Angus.
The Big Hall experience will also include the Snowman’s Ball featuring Matt Andersen with special guests Fortunate Ones and Reeny Smith.
“These intimate holiday shows are a chance to create special moments that turn into treasured holiday memories,” said Anna Wood, General Manager of the Ontario Festival of Small Halls. “Take a break from the ‘holiday hectic’ and celebrate community; discover the warmth that these unique places can bring when reveling in authentic award-winning Canadian artists.”
