Tin Pan North is celebration of songs and the people who write them.
“It was an idea sparked by the legendary Tin Pan South festival held each spring in Nashville, Tennessee: Intimate acoustic rounds at diverse clubs featuring those unheralded heroes, the songwriters.
After sojourning to Tin Pan South Nashville for many years, NSAI Toronto coordinator Dan McVeigh and then co-coordinator Bruce Madole had the vision to bring something like it to Toronto. The shows would feature successful artists/songwriters who have made their mark on the world with their songs.
Last year Tin Pan North celebrated with Amy Sky, Jamie Warren, The Wilkinsons & Gil Grand.
Gil Grand is returning this year and joining him will be Keith Glass (Prairie Oyster), Joan Besen (Prairie Oyster), Beverley Mahood, Kira Isabella, Leah Daniels and other well-known artist/songwriters from both sides of the border for an evening of Nashville style songwriter rounds.
