Musica Viva Singers Celebrate Ontario Folksongs With Guest Folk Legend Ian Tamblyn
Join Musica Viva Singers to celebrate Ontario’s rich musical heritage ! Led by Scott Richardson and accompanied by Tom Sear, the 60-voice choir takes a trip through several centuries of Ontario folk music, singing of Ontario’s rugged landscapes and the lives of its people through the generations. Musica Viva Singers is also thrilled to be joined by folk legend Ian Tamblyn who will also perform a few of his own classic songs.
