The Hoot is online NOW!

Spirit of Rasputin’s is proud of its partnership with Gil’s Hootenanny. This year Gil’s takes the form of a sing-along video called Singing Together Apart, featuring highlights from past Hoots along with new songs. Performers include Sharon and Bram, Maria Dunn, Tony Turner, Eve Goldberg and Maria Hawkins, with introduction by Arthur McGregor and narration by Tamara Levine.

The show is now available at any time for free viewing (and singing along!) at gilshootenanny.ca.

And if you just can’t get enough, catch this feature all about the Hootenanny on the WPBS Facebook page (available to all).
