Canada's Best Outdoor Blues Rock Soul Music Event: Etwell Concert Series in Muskoka, Ontario - Cultural and Culinary Tourism

UPDATED June 2022

Beyond the lush forests and sparkling rivers, ponds and lakes;  there are country roads near Huntsville, Ontario that will lead you deep into the woods to a magical hidden place.
A place for musicians and music lovers.

I was lucky enough to experience this 'best kept secret' for a
Crowbar (Oh What a Feeling...What a rush) concert.

After being at this Muskoka pavilion I can't decide what the key highlight is:
the sense of community, family atmosphere, live music or the legendary pizza!

Etwell Concert Series features live music at an outdoor venue near Huntsville, Muskoka. Most shows are hosted by the Spring family (Bill, Jeanine, and Tobin) at their home on the Etwell Road. 

The venue is a remote, private location in a country setting with an open pavilion to provide shelter from the elements. (Power outages do not affect whether their shows go on. They have a generator) 

This family event mostly takes place June through October on most Sundays, 3 - 6 pm (with occasional weeknight shows). Fall and winter shows will be held at indoor venues in Huntsville.  

Chairs and benches are provided and all shows are rain or shine. But you are welcome to bring your own as well.

Admission is a suggested $20 donation per person for the outdoor concerts, with proceeds going to the artists. Donations can be made on site. Children are welcome at our outdoor concerts and admitted free of charge.

Etwell Concert Series artists are internationally acclaimed musicians, including Juno-award-nominees and winners, as well as Maple Blues Awards nominees and winners. Our opening acts are often local musicians

This was a stunning venue to perform. Organizer could use LED video walls for an extra effect. It would give a more exciting environment. Also, several lighting systems and sound systems could be installed. There are many advantages to these.
