This  concert is a fundraiser for Places for People,  a not-for-profit  organization dedicated to creating affordable rental housing for  individuals at risk of homelessness in Haliburton County.

The  Telling our Stories Speaker Series in partnership with the Haliburton  County Folk Society and Places for People is pleased to present the  Grievous Angels in concert.  The Angels are a seven piece alt-folk  country band who have been performing and recording since 1986. They  just released their ninth album, Last Call for Cinderella.  Here is what people are saying about this album:

"Last  Call For Cinderella is a wonder. It’s as rough and ragged as the woods  and rock faces of Northern Ontario… and it's like wandering into the  perfect kitchen party. This is a protest album for a modern world, but  it’s also a gift from the hearts of seven incredibly talented  musicians." -Blog Critics

“A true gem. The Grievous Angels  have crafted songs that are both a reflection of the times and a  timeless commentary on the human condition.” – The Daily Press

“Politically charged.” – Canadian Beats

Charlie  Angus is the band's frontman.  He is a talented singer /songwriter as  well as author, journalist, broadcaster, and politician. He was guest  speaker at the Telling Our Stories speaker series in March 2024. He  talked about his book COBALT: CRADLE OF THE DEMON METALS/BIRTH OF A  MINING SUPERPOWER. It was a great presentation and the enthusiastic  audience encouraged his return with the Grievous Angels to perform a  concert.

This is what Charlie has to say:

"After 20 years  fighting for people in the House of Commons, I am returning to my roots.  Those roots have always been in music and grassroots activism. You can  get a clear sense of how those roots come together on Last Call For  Cinderella, which has been called a powerful soundtrack for dystopic  times. The band takes on disinformation, the climate crisis, economic  uncertainty and addiction while providing a powerful antidote of hope.  And it’s a pretty kick-ass record.”

The Angels will be  performing in the logging museum, a popular concert venue at Haliburton  Forest and the perfect one for this talented gritty band.
