    At age 16, John Borra played his first gig at the legendary Toronto punk bar The Turning Point. He was a member of legendary post-punk band A Neon Rome, Groovy Religion and The Viletones, played with Change of Heart, Handsome Ned and many others. Since then he has been a part of nearly every significant musical movement in the city.
    These days he’s best known as a troubadour, albeit one with a rebellious storytelling streak that can be traced back to Hank Williams and other pioneering voices of folk and country music. His critically acclaimed solo album “Blue Wine” was released in 2020. In October 2022 John released “Cassettes in Common”, a tribute to other musicians who helped build the scene.
    Rockwood’s Ian Howard Reid is the son of an artist’s son and a salesman’s daughter. His sensitivity and gift of the gab make for a unique and memorable show. Since returning from years of overseas teaching in 2008, Ian has made over 1000 public
    appearances, earning much respect from his musical peers and fans alike.
    “He is so completely, unapologetically himself on stage. On top of that, he writes good tunes!” –
    Andrew Craig, host of CBC’s ‘Canada Live’
