A Grand Musical Entertainment: Grassroots Music of Old Ontario
Ian Bell, a musician, visual artist and former museum curator

Ian will entertain us with a concert of early Ontario songs and instrumental tunes, played on folk and historical instruments including guitar, banjo, concertina, wooden flute and small pipes.

Ian has performed as a folk musician since the late 1970s. On his own and with a number of groups, he has appeared at numerous folk festivals across Canada, the United States and abroad, and for many years was a regular musical contributor to Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Café, Fresh Air and other CBC radio programs.

Following the release of three CDs of original material, Ian has created two recordings of traditional songs and tunes – My Pious Friends & Drunken Companions and his latest, Forget Me Not When Far Away – a collection of songs of the Great Lakes. Ian’s latest CD is a just-released live collection of songs and stories, Saturday Night In Villa Nova.
