Event description
Cedar Valley 'Schindig' - back in its second year! An outdoor house concert honouring some of the most original old time artists.

About this event

Join us for a special outdoor house concert featuring Chris Coole + John Showman and Hannah Shira Naimain with Arnie Naiman!

Rooted in the belief that music, and community, make the world a far better place, my Dad and I envisioned a special night of music - to help our family, friends and community stop the world for a brief moment - to share in song and celebrate the beauty in this life. Thus, the Cedar Valley 'Schindig' was born, titled after our family name and hosted on land that has been in our family since the 1920s.

Throughout this Pandemic, our family has come to realize that five generations have gathered on this land for Sunday dinner. Cedar Valley has been a retreat, a refuge for our family for nearly 100 years. It's about time we welcomed a few more to the table, figuratively of course. And why not do it with artists who honour these very things. As of August 29th, we are reinstating Sunday dinners following their COVID-19 hiatus. It is bound to be a gathering that you will never forget.

So bring your favourite people, your favourite picnic basket, your favourite blanket, and join us for an afternoon/evening on the sandy soil of Cedar Valley. The music and company can’t get any better.

Follow us on the gram @cedarvalley_schindig for news about the event and the artists.

Chris Coole + John Showman

John Showman and Chris Coole have logged thousands of onstage hours developing a deep musical rapport. Together, they've been members of The Foggy Hogtown Boys and The Lonesome Ace Stringband, separately, they are veterans of such bands as The Creaking Tree String Quartet, The David Francey Band, and New Country Rehab. CBC's Tom Power calls John "Canada's best fiddler", and Penguin Eggs Magazine says "Coole's banjo playing if frankly, incomparable". Both are acclaimed songwriters as well as arrangers of traditional music. When these two old friends get to make use of the space afforded in a duo setting, the magic really starts to happen!

Hannah Shira Naiman

Named “Traditional Singer of the Year” (2017) by the CFMAs, Hannah Shira Naiman’s banjo-grounded songs dance the listener into the Appalachian mountains and eras back in time, drawing on her roots in Toronto’s ‘old time’ folk music community to share powerful tales of hope and loss. With a sound that’s been described as a cross between Gillian Welch and Sarah Harmer, Naiman crafts original songs that ring with influences of Ola Belle Reed, The Carter Family, American oldtime, and traditional English ballads.

Hannah has begun work on her third record, “Wheels Won’t Go;” featuring songs inspired by her move from Toronto to northern Ontario, the COVID pandemic, and her experience of new motherhood.

When playing alongside her Dad, Arnie Naiman, their passion, authenticty and musicianship truly shine through!
