Get Back to the Garden

A Fundraiser for GICEL’s Children’s Summer Eco-Camp on Mayne
Family Concert at the Mayne Island Agricultural Hall, Wednesday October 21st – 6:30 PM

Things are heating up all over the planet! In recognition and support of Global Climate Change Week, Salt Spring Island Celtic harpist and singer-songwriter Oona McOuat and her band Dream Deep will perform a family and community concert on Wednesday, October 21st , at the Ag Hall at 6:30PM. The concert will open with Mayne Island school children performing material from that day’s in-school workshops on Music and Nature—including a mini Faerie Camp!—led by the visiting musicians.

The evening will feature wild cellist Corbin Keep, Hawaiian woodwinds whiz Richard Lee and percussionist Chris Bertin, as well as a special update on climate change and the oceans, by international marine ecologist Jeff Ardron.

This event marks the launch of Oona’s sweetly eclectic album Honey and Holy Water, an immediate top-seller on ‘CD Baby’ that is getting airplay around the globe. The concert is also a fundraiser for GICEL’s children’s Summer Eco Day Camp on Mayne. Soothing, grooving, eco-Celt, organic and emotive, Oona’s music is a river connecting song to sustainability, heartache to hope, passion to possibility. Her music inspires us to not only love the world, but believe we can transform it.

Tickets are free for kids 12 and under, $8 for teens and $12 for adults and are available at Happy Tides, and online via PayPal at For more information, please contact Tina Farmilo at 539-2402, or get a taste of the music at
