Pavilion Summer Concert Series at the Elora Centre for the Arts: featuring Harry Lee Follon

September 5 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Our final concert in the pavilion as part of our Summer Concert Series!  You won’t want to miss the classic sound and memorable melodies of Harry Lee Follon on the stage!  And who doesn’t love a fiddle and pedal steel!?

With his thick grey beard and ubiquitous wide-brimmed hat, Harry Lee Follon looks like a man transplanted from a previous century. But that timeless image is the ideal reflection of his music—pure, honest songs that are as emotionally resonant in 2024 as they would have been in 1924.  His new album ‘Uncle’s Lament’ was just released in June!  “The overall feeling while listening to Uncle’s Lament is something close to sitting in a front parlour enjoying good friends playing music together” – Canadian Beats

Follon’s music is inspired by the likes of John Prine and Townes Van Zandt, although he says that he’s also inspired by younger artists working in that tradition such as Jeffery Martin and Joe Pug, as well as fellow Canadians Spencer Burton and Zachary Lucky.

And lucky you, this concert is also part of a BBQ Picnic at the Arts Centre – but you have to order meals ahead here.  Otherwise, just come and enjoy this free concert featuring the amazing Harry Lee Follon!

 

Presented by our amazing community partners at Sorbara Group of Companies, Tribute Homes, and The County of Wellington, The Centre Wellington Community Foundation, and the Township of Centre Wellington‘s Tourism Marketing Fund.
