A rare reunion of 2 favourites.

Mark Haines & Tom Leighton have played for Folk Night twice, including our first Merrick Jarrett night. But Mark now lives in PEI and the duo very rarely gets a chance to make music together. Tom has been here a few more times, including leading two singing workshops. So glad to have them back!

Folk Night's first magnificent voice

Lyrics that challenge, stimulate and inspire, combined with melodies that soar make Eileen McGann one of Canada’s finest songwriters. From award-winning environmental anthems and stark social commentary to side-splitting political satire, McGann's is a strong voice for justice and the earth. We welcome Eileen back for our 2020 Merrick Jarrett concert!
