Taking the evening’s theme to a whole other level will be Voyageur, the Six String Nation Guitar. Each of the guest artists will perform songs on the guitar, an instrument inspired by the nation itself and constructed with more than 60 historic artifacts collected from across the country including seat 69 from Massey Hall, Wayne Gretzky’s hockey stick, Trudeau’s canoe paddle and many more. Jowi Taylor, the visionary behind the guitar, will emcee the show and kick things off with a short presentation about this amazing instrument and some of the many stories behind it.
