This weekend, August 19th – 21st, Dockside Festival of the Arts and its new sister festival Muskoka Music Festival presented by TD, return to beautiful Gravenhurst, Ontario for the 2022 edition! Today we are thrilled to announce Juno nominated artist Terra Lightfoot will now headline the Opera House show on Saturday evening, with very special guest AHI. “As a new resident of the area, I’m thrilled to be added to an already fantastic lineup at Muskoka Music Fest!” says Terra. Due to an unexpected family health emergency, Whitehorse is unable to perform. From the band – “We are sad to be disappointing our fans and friends in Gravenhurst and we don’t take this at all lightly. We know everyone will be in great musical hands with Terra. We hope to play the festival another year.”
Founder and Artistic Director of Muskoka Music Festival Miranda Mulholland shares; “While we are disappointed that Whitehorse is unable to perform for the festival, we all believe that family comes first and are thinking about them during this difficult time. We are so delighted that Terra Lightfoot is able to step in to share her powerhouse voice and gifted guitar playing with her trio at the newly refurbished Opera House. We hope that previous ticket purchasers will still join us at Saturday night’s concert featuring Terra and special guest AHI in this highly-anticipated return of the Muskoka Music Festival.” Tickets for the Opera House show are available here, and refunds are available at the point of purchase.
