Ms Scandalli and I are very excited at the prospect of playing and greeting everyone at Farmers markets throughout Toronto — beginning in  May!

Stay tuned…

July 20/21

Sigh… I'm pleased to report that some farmers markets are now opening and that St Lawrence Mkt has remained open all along (Kudoos to the Daniels for making it so!!). Sadly, music is not allowed at any markets for the foreseeable.

In other news, I have recently aquired a new 'box' —it is a pump reed organ made by W Bell & Co in Guelph, ON in 1871!

Feb 20

At St Lawrence Farmers Market most Saturday mornings. Lovely short set w/Geoff Somers @ ABFC on the 2nd!

Late October 19

Just played the final East York market for the year — fond 'so longs' until next June. We hope to be at St Lawrence often during the winter months and await scheduling at other indoor markets as well.

Sept 2019

Slipping slowly into autumn but the markets are full of wonderful fresh foods. We will be at a number of them in September and October, including the Main Stage at Leslieville on September 8!

July 2019

Summer has arrived in its often-abrupt fashion and Outdoor Markets are in full swing. Strawberries have been sumptuous, asparagus and lettuce lovely, and tree fruits, melons and other berries just around the corner.
Ms Scandalli
and I will be in attendance at many venues through October (see dates on the left) and look forward to playing for you!

May 2019

The Outdoor Farmers Markets are now opening and I'm very pleased to be playing at so many fine venues throughout the summer and fall (see dates on the left).
Hope to see you there!

April 2019

Ahh…Toronto's famous 'almost' spring. Those of us who are veterans know that these semi-mildish temperatures with undercutting cool breezes could go on for some time (Even until June when summer would arrive with a hot bang!)
But hope (at least) springs and I have a growing list of bookings for outdoor markets (see left) beginning in May.
Hope to see you there!

March 2019

Snow is beginning to leave us -- in large puddles and not instantly —but…
Looking forward to better walking weather and, eventually, outdoor markets (even have a couple of summer bookings).
Meanwhile Saturday mornings are fine at St Lawrence Farmers Market — between the pies, the coffee, and the apples…

January 2019

Snow and cold outside but I'm bellowing on at the St Lawrence Market most Saturday mornings and have an appearance or two at the Sorauren Indoor Farmers Market as well.

October 18

Outdoor markets are winding down -- more that a bit chilly for the accordion player this fall!
Just booked some up-coming dates indoors with the Sorauren Market and the Brickworks ––
and I will be at the St. Lawrence Farmers Market most Saturday mornings
between the pies, the coffee, and the apples…

September 18

Ms Santalla Scandalli is back from Philly with her new bass register switches well installed. 

An unusual repair — the master switch simply broke in two. All is well now.
