Songs to Recovery 2016 Highlights

Leave a comment

On Saturday, September 17th, Riverwalk hosted our fourth annual Songs to Recovery concert and art show! The event involved performances by local bands and musical artists, as well as a showcase of art curated from our Expressive and Therapeutic Arts program. All ticket proceeds went towards helping us keep on providing FREE arts-based programming in our community. (To learn more about what programs we offer and how to get involved, click here.)

We were amazed with the wonderfully talented performers who all volunteered their time to share their music with us for a good cause. We had a great variety this year, everything from progressive rock to a violin duet. We thank all of the wonderful musicians who came out to support Riverwalk:

Naomi Hazlett, the Jay Dee Band, Barbara Dunlop and Stephanie Etherington, Matt Gerber, The New Commuters, Michelle Scott, and Ravyn Red.

Special thanks go out Ravyn Red for sharing their gear, Mel for helping organize the event, and Tyler for being our amazing stage tech and sound guy.

Here are some of our favourite photos from the event!
