Folk Music Ontario Presents: Stan Simon on City Hall Live Online

May 12 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Tune in:

About the artist:
Stan Simon began writing songs at an early age in Toronto, Ontario crafting poignant melodies on a broken classical guitar from his father. Largely influenced by vintage folk and country records, Simon delivers earnest lyrics, sung with a vocal prowess, sharp harmonica and a rustic acoustic sound that resonates through your body. Two records later, countless gigs, and opportunities to share the stage with the likes of Chuck Prophet, The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer and Julia Jacklin, this troubadour finds himself looking inwards to write his next musical chapter. His upcoming album, “Songs from Strange Places” contains classic storytelling and visceral songwriting reminiscent of the great poets and balladeers before him. It is a journey through the past wandering towards the future encountering love, loss and hardship along the way. “Songs from Strange Places” is set for release in 2019.


About the presenter:
In the three decades since it was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization, Folk Music Ontario has undergone many structural changes. These have happened with the careful oversight and leadership of the member-elected boards of directors that run Folk Music Ontario, and with the consent of the membership at each Annual General Meeting.
