Welcome to the Ontario Festival of Small Halls!

Catch Ken Whiteley and the Levy Sisters with Kim Pollard at the Seeley’s Bay Community Hall on Friday September 28th at 7:30PM.

Ken Whiteley has been called “…a cross between Pete Seeger and Tony Bennett on 11!”  A Canadian roots music legend, Ken has won a Canadian Folk Music Award, Lifetime Achievement Awards from the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals and Mariposa Folk Festival, a Genie Award and been nominated for 7 Juno and 15 Maple Blues Awards. Joining him will be the gorgeous vocal harmonies and percussion of the fabulous Levy Sisters, Amoy and Ciceal. They have sung with Ken for over 25 years and have deep roots in the gospel traditions as well as jazz, blues and R&B. Ken Whiteley and the Levy Sisters have performed across the country and the shows are soul stirring, inspiring and participatory fun.

With a reputation for energetic live shows, impeccable musicianship and an uncanny ability to convert anyone within earshot into a lifelong fan, The Slocans have been winning over audiences from Merlefest to RockyGrass and everywhere in between.
