Sheesham and Lotus - House Concert
Time: 7:00pm
Location: Sunny Rock Bed and Breakfast
Sheesham and Lotus' commitment to the preservation of music and tradition of the past is indelible. At the core of the show is a repertoire based on their love of the American fiddle tune, joyously played with banjo and before long, a startling array of traditional and non-trad instruments make appearances. Tunes played on jaw-harps, gourd banjos and homemade instruments like the Contrabass HarmoniPhonium add depth and absurdity to their amazing sound, as they sing into their patented Sepia-phonic Mono-phone, an acoustical filter into which they project their voices in stupefying harmonies, while playing ragtime and blues in pleasing mono-phonic delivery. As a banjo and fiddle duet, Sheesham and Lotus have established themselves as an act that has it all, combining astounding musicianship and fearless grooves with a show that is dynamic and entertaining. Admission - $20 to the artist Call Sally at 705 286 4922 to reserve a seat

Bob Bossin's Davy the Punk - A story of Bookies, the Mob, Toronto the Good and my Dad
Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Maple Lake United Church
Davy the Punk is Bob Bossin's new one-man musical about his father's life in the gambling underworld - a story that is, according to CBC's Michael Enright, "fascinating… amazing and sometimes hilarious." It is, "so outrageous," says Andreas Schroeder, "it's worthy of a Mordecai Richler novel." Davy the Punk comes to the Haliburton Highlands. Davy Bossin, Bob's father, was born in 1905. Finding his way blocked by the rampant anti-semitism of the time, Davy blazed his own path in a new, vibrant, international industry - gambling. There he matched wits with cops and mobsters, grifters and grafters, crooks and judges. His court cases set precedents that affect us to this day. Davy's son Bob grew up to found Stringband, to pioneer Canadian indie music, and to write songs Pete Seeger praised as "funny, informative and inspiring at the same time." Now Bossin Jr. tells Bossin Sr.'s story, in a performance that is, entertaining, illuminating and, at times, touching. Seating is limited.Tickets are $20 and a place will be reserved by calling 705-754-9873

Birdathon
Time: 12:00 am -11:59 pm
Location: Haliburton Forest & Wild Life Reserve Ltd.
The Birdathon has become a tradition amongst our campers at Haliburton Forest. For one day a year during the spring migration we ask all professional and amateur birders alike to scour the forest in search of their 2 legged, feathered friends. Some participants have figured that it is just as much fun to sit back and let the birds come to them. Either way the information collected is equally as important in assisting Haliburton Forest in its long-term monitoring of bird populations. Although the Birdathon is free, regular day pass fees to Haliburton Forest do apply. Everyone is welcome! A bird check list is provided. Time: 12:00 am – 11:59 pm Fee: $16.00 plus HST per adult, children 17 and under no charge. No fee to housekeeping guests and campers of Haliburton Forest. Included: Day pass to Haliburton Forest and a chance to win when you turn in your bird check list. For more information please call 705-754-2198.

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.
