Hi there - friend of mine asked for info a few days ago re Toronto Island. No replies (yet!).
She's going to be travelling (ex NZ) to Toronto Island in May (staying there for about 6 weeks).
Advice appreciated as to what is 'out there' - gigs, clubs, sessions etc. She's also likely to make it over to Toronto....so! help please - what are the 'not to be missed's'
Cheers

There is a very good Flying Cloud Folk Club in Toronto.

I said a few things in the original thread...
and yes, your friend will HAVE to go over to Toronto I expect in any case, since the islands she will be at are pretty small, especially the residential parts! Most is parkland, or the small airport, or the islan beaches. Not a lot else going on. There are ferries regularly crossing the harbour to Toronto.

So, to recap:
Foggy Hogtown Boys at the Brunswick House on Saturday afternoons

Crazy Strings, at Silver Dollar, Wednesday nites

Flying Cloud Folk Club, Sunday nites (Google their webpage and then call their hotline and leave a message for perhaps some contacts/info on the scene from Steve of Flying Cloud)

Old Time Jam 2nd Sunday (call Steve Cooper for info.. he lives on Toronto Island.. not hard to find him I suspect given the population there)

And when your friend gets here, if she can post "I am here" and a phone number to MudCat, perhaps a person or few might be able to provide current info of the moment.

Also, I think on alternate Thursday evenings the Martian Hollow String Band plays at the Press Club. Your friend can call there and find out which week/when they are playing.

The Press Club @ 850 Dundas West, north side, 4 blocks west of Bathurst

Brian had already posted about the Flying Cloud (on both threads), which is the only place I know. The only thing I can add is that it is held at the Tranzac Club, on Brunswick St just south of Bloor.
The Cloud website is here and it is a really great club. I however am an hour and a half's drive away.

Thanks everyone - sorry to double up on threads, but this original one 'disappeared' for a few days - couldn't find it on search either.
Sorry to have you scurrying around twice!
I'll pass on the info

There's an Irish club on the Danforth (major thoroughfare) that has trad. music - I forget the name, but probably someone on here knows it. People?

Thurg,

What about the something and Arrow on Yonge - Cape Breton flavour and starts a few hours before Dora Keogh's - I never got to either in 2003 due to family commitments.

As someone noted early on, there are NO clubs and no lodging on Toronto's "Island!" (there is a nude beach, though...). The island is occupied by a large park, a smallish airport, and an area of surviving homes originally built as "cottages."

However, one club is well worth checking out: Hugh's Room, which tends to feature acoustic or quiet electric acts, often (but not always) blues-related.

There is also an information website for Toronto at
Toronto.com (use any search engine to find it).
