Farrucas Duo - holiday Monday @ Artfest Toronto!

Farrucas Duo- Performing Latin music at Artfest Monday September 3rd, 2018

Farrucas.jpg

“Farrucas Duo” is a husband-and-wife duo that experiments with the diversity of Latin sounds and instruments through their music -  painting an exotic musical portrait for you to enjoy all year long.

Farrucas Duo’s artistic taste is a “fusion” between two musical traditions; Mediterranean and Ecuadorian, blending together other several genres including Arab, Cumbia, Rumba Flamenco, Salsa, and Rock influences.

Jorge: “I am a self-taught musician. Since 1990, I’ve joined and performed with various folklore groups, recorded an album with Raíces – a group from my Native city (Ibarra, Ecuador), and later on I became a part of The Imbayakunas – completing with them their 2003 tour… In context to how he met my wife, I bonded with her musically, as well as sentimentally. In 2005, we both returned to Ecuador, South America and on October 8, 2005 our musical bond officially formed “Farrucas”.

Laura: “I started off my musical career as a self-taught learner from an early age; however, eventually I was given the opportunity to attend the New Conservatory of Music at the age of thirteen in Toronto, where I learned great fundamental techniques and secrets of the classical guitar. Eventually started working with various groups in my home city; including Johannes Linstead, and Pavlo… As time went by, I became connected with Latin American and Andean music – particularly when I was introduced to The Imbayakunas, based in Toronto. I toured with them in 2003 and had the privilege of recorded my very first album with this Ecuadorian group. Meeting Jorge through this group, I bonded with Jorge very fondly, and here we are today. After 14 years since our encounter – we are keeping our love for music healthy and strong!”

Don Stevenson & Fergus Hambleton @ Artfest Toronto!

Get your groove on with Don Stevenson & Fergus Hambleton while they open the stage and welcome Artfest visitors from far and near this Labour day long weekend!  Drop by the main stage this Friday at the one and only, Distillery Historic District in downtown Toronto!

A Juno award winning musician, multi-talented singer, songwriter Ferugus Hamleton will be joined by founding member of the legendary Moby Grape Band, Don Stevenson. Providing musical entertainment August 31st at Artfest Toronto in the Distillery District - this is an art event not to be missed!

Fergus Hambleton is a versatile singer, songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist who, during his illustrious career, has been a leading performer and songwriter in the folk, pop and reggae music arenas. Fronting the Juno Award winning reggae outfit, The Sattalites and enjoying a successful solo career are among his many musical achievements.

Don Stevenson is known world-wide as the drummer and singer/cheif songwriter for Moby Grape, a band which was formed in San Francisco in 1966. In 2003, the disc was ranked as number 121 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the best-ever 500 albums.  All of Moby Grapes five members went on to make their own music or join other bands, though it wasn’t until 2010 that Stevenson finally released a solo record, King of the Fools, which has had excellent reviews.  Read about Don here in Talking with drummer/singer/songwriter.  

My music philosophy is there are only two kinds of music: the good and not good, I always try to represent the good stuff.
— Don Stevenson

Robert Made It

Robert White hand crafts 3-D end grain cutting boards and cheese boards that are made from the finest selected wood pieces. His work is unique and the quality of his boards will last a life-time if you give them the proper care.  Robert will be at the upcoming Artfest Toronto show, from Aug 31 - Sept 3 so drop by and check out his woodworking skills. 

"I often teach young people the joys creating and wood working, rule #1- "good enough is never good enough, only perfection is good enough" - Technical skills are just one aspect of the disciplines required to be a great wood worker. Learning to be patient, taking pride in every step of the process is equally important. Never rushing for the completion of a project but feeling somewhat sad at the projects completion, this is when you know a woodworker has truly put his heart and soul into the piece. No matter the size or monetary value, each of my creations are pieces that make up the whole of my legacy, a fact forefront in my mind with everything I make." 

(Robert G. White)
