This February end your family day weekend with a bonfire and house concert featuring Rube & Rake. Coming to us all the way from St. John’s, Newfoundland, Josh Sandu and Andrew Laite are a folk/roots duo that have played across Canada over the last 4 years.

Rube & Rake craft and sing mournful traveler’s songs in a vocal style reminiscent of The Everly Brothers or Simon & Garfunkel, usually accompanying themselves with a banjo and acoustic guitar. Their harmonies and lyrics have caught the attention of the CBC and have been featured on CBC’s Absolutely Canadian, view that episode and other video below.

A year at ORA

Looking back on the past year at Owl Ridge Acres gives us a lot of joy, its been quite a special year. From guiding hikes through the woods to experience The Great Canadian Tree Warmer installation to intimate heart warming concerts while gathering in the living room, 2016 is full of happy memories.

But there is an event in particular that really strikes a chord with us. One warm August night a small group of folks gathered around a bonfire under a star filled sky to experience a slice of Canadian history in the making. The Tragically Hip performed their last show and with the help of the CBC we were able to take in the moment while projecting it on a white sheet hung on the side of our barn. Although it probably wasn’t as good as actually seeing the show in Kingston, I’m positive everyone that attended will remember exactly where they were that night. Thank you for the memories.

We’d also like to extend a heart-felt Thank You to all the artists, musicians, writers, creative folk and their appreciators that made 2016 a great year for us. May 2017 bring you new creative energy and have you wandering into valuable new experiences.
