TONIGHT - Thursday, January 26th - Hugh's Room, Toronto

Janine Stoll of The DoneFors performs in support of ..Raise the Roof and Raise the Rent for Andy Frank...
Andy Frank of Roots Music Canada has been a tireless supporter of the Canadian folk and roots scene. He has interviewed, hosted, reviewed, webcast, documented or simply raved about the work of hundreds of independent musicians, helping them realize their own potential as creative artists.

Now, the music community is about to return the favour. Andy recently got the shock of his life: a diagnosis of cancer of the colon. This will mean some serious downtime, with no income for Andy, as he clears his schedule to allow himself time for surgery, chemo treatment, and recuperation.

This all-star benefit concert will feature a stellar lineup of roots, folk and world music all-stars, including Layah Jane, Suzie Vinnick, Bill Garrett & Curly Boy Stubbs, Jay Aymar, Rob Szabo, Crabtree & Mills, Jon Brooks, Rosemary Phelan, Annabelle Chvostek, Shawna Caspi, Grit Laskin, Kirsten Jones, HOTCHA!, and Janine Stoll with accompaniment by Trevor Mills and Gregg Lawless & more TBA, hosted by David Newland of Roots Music Canada.

The show will be broadcast LIVE across the Roots Music Canada fan network online and will raise much-needed funds to help Andy and his dear wife Helen along on his journey to wellness.

Tickets: $18 Advance/$20 Door (includes HST)


Janine, Paul, Liam and Brian
