Canada's amazing story about the ground zero of our musical contribution to the world - a powerful force of artistry and global social momentum - has been un-told for too long.
A handful of pioneering and poetic Canadians helped to change the world in the late 60s, AND YET, almost no one outside of Toronto or of a certain age, has any real knowledge of this.
It was a time of magic, music and mania.
I am going to change all of that. And you can help.
I am creating a new doc special about Yorkville. It will air + stream in Canada and the USA telling our story to the world.
It is mainly a labour of love and all of it made on my own steam - with the help of many friends and supporters along the way.
This is the POWERFUL story of how MUSIC changed Canada and the world in the 60s w/ Gordon Lightfoot, Neil Young, Steppenwolf, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and more.
Additional interviews will include Judy Collins, Ronnie Hawkins, UN Ambassador Bob Rae, Robby Krieger of The Doors, Bob Ezrin, Serena Ryder, Danny Marks, Clayton Ruby, Nick Jennings, Dan Hill, Gordon Lightfoot, Robbie Lane, K-Os, Alan Cross, Alan Frew, and many others.
I am now seeking new Community 'Producers' who can help me get to the finish line.
For a small but helpful contribution, you will be listed as a Community Associate Producer to the project.
This helps to pay for editors, music rights, production costs, my time, etc.
It is a good opportunity to get your name in lights, or in memory of someone special, and help get this amazing story out to millions of people. FINALLY.
Please consider this and your involvement will go a very long way to bring this dream to a reality.
I am happy to talk in person to all who are interested.
And if this is not for you, feel free to pass it on.
