We want to give a big shout out to Karen Daniel’s grade 2/3 class at Lynndale Heights Public School in Simcoe where they are learning to play their ukeleles and harmonicas to Beckon’s song “Beautiful Life”. Classroom teacher Karen writes “When they lined up to go home, some were still singing, and one girl said, "I just can't get that song out of my head", to which I replied, "That's the idea".”

Beckon is thrilled to be a part of the Georgian Bay Folk Society's presentation of Wintersong, an evening in concert with an incredible line-up of musicians including James Keelaghan, Coco Love-Alcorn, David Sereda, RPR and many others!  The event is a special fundraiser to support GBFS's 40th Summerfolk Anniversary Celebration.

Beckon was thrilled to have the honour of leading the 2014 Summerfolk Festival Choir on the mainstage!  In just two short days this hard-working group of just under 100 dedicated people learned a Pete Seeger tribute medley and the Beckon originals "Beautiful Life" and "Sing Out".  What a wonderful experience to feel the power of so many voices coming together in song!  A big thank you to Summerfolk Artistic Director James Keelaghan for this inspiring and wonderful opportunity.
