And live music with The Blurry Pickers!

The Blurry Pickers are a family of friends from Southern Ontario who formed a band around their mutual love of music.  Somewhere between where Jerry Garcia meets Bill Monroe, the Blurry Pickers have developed a sound that crosses borders but rests nowhere.  Lauded for their catchy melodies and songwriting, old-timey and soulful lyrics, their dynamic will pull you in and their songs will keep you there.
Music starts at 8 pm
