It’s that time of year again. Toronto’s Winterfolk Blues and Roots Music Festival is on the Danforth Feb. 17-19, 2017 and Acoustic Harvest will be there with bells, and guitars, and dancing shoes. Its showcase is Saturday, Feb. 18 at 8 p.m. at the Globe Bistro at 124 Danforth Ave.

Featuring Mary Kelly with Tom Leighton, Anne Walker, Missy Burgess, and John Prince and Bruce McDaniel, this is Acoustic Harvest’s fourth Winterfolk showcase. Last year, the East End-founded outfit was honoured with a lifetime achievement award for commitment to the development of music and community in Ontario.

Winterfolk is a weekend-long winter music festival with summer festival vibes. With 150 artists at five venues over three days, the “weatherproof” event is a unique way to experience music in Toronto and learn about the city’s roots, blues, jazz and folk scene.
