MINE! is a 12-song, 60-minute journey back in time to a world of prospectors, pioneers, bootlegger-bandits, dog-sledders and moonshiners.
There are many famous stories about the Klondike Gold Rush in the Yukon and the California Gold Rush of 1849. Another major gold rush happened right here in Ontario, in 1909, up North in the Porcupine Camp. Singer-Songwriter, Actor and Playwright Will Gillespie shares stories from this particular corner of Canadian history with new, original Folk songs, digging deep to uncover hidden gems of the past.
Come spend an hour at the turn of the twentieth century!
