bullhorn media - Jane's Walk 2011SATURDAY MAY 7 & SUNDAY MAY 8

Jane’s Walk

Jane’s Walk is a street-level celebration of Jane Jacobs’ legacy held annually around the world on the first weekend in May. It combines the simple act of walking with personal observations, urban history and local lore to knit people together into strong and resourceful communities. There are walks all over the city – and new to Jane’s Walk this year are two tours of Toronto’s newest neighbourhood: Liberty Village.

  • Mike Layton (yes, City Councilor and son of Jack) will lead a walk from The Liberty Village BIA Office at 67 Mowat at 3pm on Saturday May 7.
  • Jaymz Bee (singer, producer and radio host at JAZZ.FM91) has lived and worked in Liberty Village for many years and will lead his walk Sunday at noon, beginning at Liberty Bistro, 25 Liberty (at Atlantic). Bee invites people to come early to enjoy brunch and some stories and music from some of the locals, starting at 10:30.

Jane Harbury’s Discoveries

Hugh’s Room / 2261 Dundas West
doors 6:00pm – show 8:30pm

hughsroom.com or call 416.531.6604 for tickets!

Publicist and music aficionado Jane Harbury has been showcasing and promoting young talent for a long time…and thankfully there is no end in sight! If you haven’t heard of these artists, you can trust her (and Bullhorn)…you will be impressed! The May 31st show of this popular series will feature Halifax native Jon Bryant, who has travelled throughout Europe and across North America, performing original folk/roots music. Folk singer Shawn Clarke (who sites inspiration from Tom Waites and Wilco) will sing some songs from his debut album “Like Birds Too Tired To Fly” and the beautiful Bianca will perform her blend of narrative, poetry and music. The name Barbra Lica is probably familiar to many Bullhorn readers but for those who have not seen her live, prepare to be blown away. Barbra will be accompanied by guitarist and co-writer Colin Storey. So much young talent will surely make for one unforgettable night!
