Harry Manx in Concert
Time: 7:30pm

Manx is often referred to as the "Mysticssippi" Blues Man, because of his expertise in melding both East and West music together and therefore, "creating musical short stories that wed the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas". Over the last 10 years, Harry Manx released 11 Albums and has garnered a room full of awards including, "seven Maple Blues Awards, six Juno nominations, the Canadian Folk Award in 2005 for Best Solo Artist and won CBC Radio's "Great Canadian Blues Award" in 2007″. His most recent accomplishment was receiving yet another Juno Nomination for "Blues Album of the Year", for his release, "Bread and Buddha" in 2010. $45 for members; $50 for others (HST included)

Video - Toxic Trespass
Location: Your Home
Raising awareness of the connection between your children�s health and our environment. Book a casual in home video showing for your friends. This is not a sales event. As a courtesy to attendees this is a no scent event (includes perfumes, personal care and laundry scents). In Toxic Trespass, intrepid filmmaker Barri Cohen launches an investigation into the effects of the chemical soup around us. She starts with her 10-year-old daughter, whose blood carries carcinogens like benzene and the long-banned DDT. Then, Cohen heads out to Windsor and Sarnia: Canadian toxic hotspots, with startling clusters of deadly diseases. The filmmaker journeys into toxic nightmares all too common in industrialized countries. She meets passionate activists working for positive change, along with doctors and scientists who see evidence of links between environmental pollution and health problems. And she learns how quickly barriers can go up sometimes, when authorities are questioned about the connection between toxins and serious health problems. This film is essential viewing for anyone concerned about the effects of pollutants on our � and our children�s � very DNA.
