Manantler Craft Brewery in Bowmanville have a run of shows at their brewhouse this week. Thursday they continue the weekly open mic nights. Friday Aug. 28 Peterborough folk rocker Chris Culgin. Saturday Aug 29 Rory Taillon and The Old Souls will pair up with the raggedy sounds of Hairy Holler. Possible Tom Waits overtones. Shows are 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Sunday Aug 30 ex-Stone Sparrows Sam Balson will perform. Balson now lives in Vancouver so a hometown gig is a rarity. He's bringing friends (he has some pretty talented friends). This is an afternoon show with a 3 p.m. start.
