Concert Series: Saskia Tomkins, Jim Bowskill, Ted Staunton

A Whole Lot of Fun!

Ted Staunton, Saskia Tomkins, and Jim Bowskill are long-time musical friends and collaborators and well-known to audiences far and wide, both individually and together.

Whether performing locally as the Ganaraska Sheiks at festivals like Cultivate or the Port Hope Jazz Fest, stomping it up as part of the Maple Leaf Champions Jug Band, or playing informally like this, they combine instrumental virtuosity and great vocals with wonderful original songs and a bottomless barrel of roots, blues, and raggy music that ranges over the past century.

No strangers to Headwaters Farm, their good-humored, high-energy performances are summertime staples in Northumberland, and they’re raring to play music as hot as the weather.


Headwaters Farm Concerts

Our open-air concerts are a venue like no other. Our natural amphitheater provides concert-goers with an expansive view of the rolling Northumberland hills and Lake Ontario. As you settle in to the listen to your favourite sounds, you’ll feel the cool evening breezes and watch the softening light transform the skyline.

We seek out talent from around the county. These skilled musicians are you neighbours and they bring a real down-home feel to every event. Owners/Farmers Linda and Tony Armstrong will greet you when you arrive, serve up authentic Italian wood-fired pizza, chat with you about their farm life and sit down to enjoy the concert too! Many who attend our concerts have now become friends and return again and again!
