There has been a lot of musical talent that has come from Northern Ontario; Shania Twain, Stompin’ Tom Connors, Gil Grand, and Jake Matthews just to name a few.
There are many concerts that come to my hometown of Sudbury, Ontario. We have multiple venue’s for local talent and band circuits. It’s a diverse crowd here and many genre’s to choose from as well.
Northern Ontario is a great location to visit and check out the local “arts” scene; for an area that is supported by the mining industry, you will be amazed at just how creative this place can be.
Maybe that is why some great talent has come from Northern Ontario; blue collar, hard working people, who have generations of stories to share. Their stories come out in their music; good story telling music.
