PFF 2010 kicks off with a wonderful evening with Royal Wood at the Canadian Canoe Museum, Friday August 27, 2010.
Doors open at 6pm; browse the museum, or have a drink!
Show starts at 7pm – opening set with Kate Le Deuce followed by Royal Wood!
This incredible artist (and local boy) enamoured the festival audience in 2008, and he’s back to conquer any hearts that didn’t get a chance to fall in love with him the firs time ’round. It’s a real pleasure to be able to present Royal at the Canadian Canoe Museum, close partners with the PFF and a terrific, world-class museum in the heart of our own fair city.
Tickets are no longer available for this show.
