Celebrate Maple Fools’ Day with bottles of local sweetness from Williams Farm and Carter Farms, maple treats from the bakers and chefs, and get inspiration for savory maple dishes using pretty much every ingredient available.

At the moment, Edward St. Moritz makes Barrie his home. He has played on the east and west coasts of Canada, worked on a radio production of After Exile for CBC Living Out Loud, opened for renowned folksinger/storyteller James Keelaghan at a concert in Midland and collaborated with Oliver Balabursk (conductor of Barrie’s Huronia Symphony Orchestra) on a Christmas holiday project Sadie’s Door. He plays the pompe or rhythm guitar inthe local gypsy jazz combo Huronia Hot Strings, and he plays viola with the Huronia Symphony Orchestra. In the time in between all of that, Edward teaches music and and plays regularly at the TLC Bistro on Maple Avenue.
