About

Huron Waves Music Festival will showcase the best of Canadian and visiting international artists at an annual springtime music festival in our region that includes Grand Bend, Exeter and other communities.

Its 2020 Festival was originally scheduled for the first two weekends of May, but emergency measures initiated to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in postponement of our Festival to an online holiday program in December 2020. 
The program is narrated by award-winning actor Graham Greene who leads the audience through five creative segments, featuring Wingham-born cellist Thomas Beard performing at Hensall’s Iceculture; ballerina Antonella Martinelli, a member of the National Ballet of Canada Corps de Ballet, dancing in the family’s heritage barn in Hensall; The Hussey Family singing from Goderich’s Courthouse Park and joined virtually by the Newfoundland Deaf Choir from St. John’s; Goderich-born soprano Christina Bell and Wingham pianist Andrea Grant performing holiday favourites in a private home near St. Joseph; plus The Sunset Drummers, joined by youth dancers from south-western Ontario First Nations including the Kettle and Stony Point First Nation, drumming and dancing down the sun on Lake Huron’s beach. It also features landscape photos by Exeter photographer Bonnie Sitter.
