[Toronto ON]
  On Sat Nov 24, JUNO Award Nominee, 3x Parents' Choice Award winner & Canadian Folk Music Award winner, Chris McKhool, celebrates the multicultural mosaic at St George the Martyr along with Suba Sankaran, Aviva Chernick, Shannon Thunderbird, Maryem Hassan Tollar, Ernie Tollar, Jordan Klapman, & more.

All funds (and non-perishable food items) raised at the concert are being donated to The Daily Bread Food Bank & ArtsCan Circle (information about both charitable organizations below). 

"Celebrate! Holidays of The Global Village" is an interactive and playful musical journey into the myriad of holidays, customs and festivities enjoyed in the North-American Fall and Winter. Children will learn traditional and original songs encouraging them to share our diversity with neighbours and friends.

Inspired by travels across Canada and around the world, "Celebrate!" is a groundbreaking collaboration with musicians from diverse cultures. It features songs about holidays from across the globe that are celebrated here in Canada, including Bodhi Day (Buddhist), Carnival (Quebec), Chanukah, Chinese New Year, Christmas, Diwali, Eid, Indigenous traditions, Kwanzaa, Ramadan and Winter Solstice.

"Celebrate!" was developed as a response to the lack of programming for young audiences and families that integrates diverse cultures and holidays into one coherent vision.  While there are many worthy public concerts and programs that take place in the fall/winter holiday season that celebrate specific holidays such as Christmas, Chanukah, Diwali etc, there is no concert program in Toronto that aims to bring so many holidays together under one roof in this way.

Hailed as a “Children's musical star” (National Post) and “Canada’s greatest eco-troubadour for young people” (Mississauga Living Arts Centre), Chris McKhool is one of Canada’s greatest musicians for young audiences. He has been touring across Canada with his family concerts for over ten years, reaching almost 1 million youth, and has appeared on Mr. Dressup, YTV’s Treehouse, TVOntario’s Crawlspace and the CBC. Chris is also a 3x Parents’ Choice Award (U.S) and Green Toronto Award of Excellence recipient.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
