Free Concert - Featuring a Dazzling Group of Singer/Songwriters

I think I saw this event in the past, and LiANA, my Songwriting Workgroup leader, just sent an email about it, and it's right near my home, so I should really be going to it... The concert is sponsored by the Songwriters Association of Canada and features numerous singer/songwriters performing in a lead-off event for the Humber Songwriting Workshop.

The news release issued by Humber College last week states:
  • TORONTO - A truly exceptional group of prominent singer/songwriters – including Jules Shear, Danny Michel, Shari Ulrich, Damhnait Doyle, Justin Gray, and Haydain Neale – will perform at the Bluebird North: Where Writers Sing and Tell concert kicking off this year’s Humber Songwriting Workshop.
    Sponsored by the Songwriters Association of Canada, the free concert is scheduled for Saturday, July 7 at 8:00 p.m. in the Assembly Hall located on the south-east corner of Lake Shore Blvd. West and Kipling Avenue in Toronto.
