“This type of event
Will allow you to vent:
And get stuff on your mind off yer chest.
And sing out with glee
Off colour, off key
To all that is getting you pissed!”
– Terry Tufts, 2013
We are very pleased to feature Terry Tufts as one of the wonderful artists joining us for Gil’s Hootenanny.

He has also worked as an accompanist for a wide range of artists, including Tom Paxton, David Francey, Colleen Peterson, Laura Smith, Wayne Rostad, Susan Aglukark and George Fox. The only two-time winner of the Ontario Council of Folk Festival’s “Songs from the Heart” competition, Terry is widely admired for his musical virtuosity and his commitment to social justice.
