Whitevale Porchfest 2022 is a wrap! Rising from the viral ashes, this wonderful grassroots festival returned in style with 25+ acts on six stages in this idyllic hamlet near Pickering, Ontario. Many thanks to visionary Mark Lowe, his hard working team, sponsors, and the residents of Whitevale. In addition to performing a one hour concert in front of an attentive audience, I had the pleasure of catching a number of amazing acts, including my new favourite- Sleeping Bees.
Porchfests are annual music events held across the United States and in Canada on front porches. Started in Ithaca, New York in 2007, porchfest events bring local musicians and neighborhoods together to celebrate and create a sense of community.
