Ian Foster Music & Film, SHORT Shorts Call for Submission
View this email in your browser
May 16, 7pm
Newfoundland native Ian Foster comes from a place of stories, and he knows how to tell them. That music is the way he tells those stories only makes the telling richer. His style is modern folk wrapped in Canadiana, belying a love of history, home and the humble tale. CBC's Bob Mersereau describes him as being "a great example of what a 21st century folk singer should be doing."

Cambridge is the 3rd stop on his North American tour for the launch of his latest album SLEEPER YEARS and a special screening of his short film KEYSTONE, named one of the top ten films of the year at the 2016 Calgary International Film Festival.

Join us May 16, 7:00pm at Trillium United Church, 450 King St E, Cambridge.
Tickets are $10 including hst.
