The Art of Music – A Celebration and Fundraiser for A Man Called Wrycraft
Michael Wrycraft designed and created the posters, postcards and covers for five of my albums: the rhyme & the river, Journey of Shadows, Beyond the Waves, Island Mountain and Anticipation. There is no-one better. I am indebted to his immense and generous vision. xo
Trinity-St Paul’s United Church
427 Bloor St W, Toronto
Tickets $30

A man called Wrycraft is known and loved for his unquenchable enthusiasm for music. His cover art and poster art creations are everywhere, and many of Canada’s top musical artists and festivals have hired him for his versatile and beautiful talents. He has had to face challenges ( the loss of both legs) and did so with bravery and humour…and now comes the time for the community to celebrate him, raise money for him, and send our very best wishes to him as he begins the next cycle of creativity and prosperity.
The list of possible celebrity musical acts is long, yet the organizers have curated a special night of intimate songs and stories from some of his friends and clients and supporters. On the star-studded bill so far are:

Tom Wilson, James Keelaghan, Carlos Del Junco, Chloe Charles, Blair Packham, David Woodhead, Jaron Freeman-Fox, Wendell Ferguson, Gary Craig, Kevin Fox, Jon Brooks, Katherine Wheatley, Treasa Levasseur, Sharlene Wallace, George Koller – and your host for the evening: Jaymz Bee – more TBA including some special guests who shall remain nameless…for now. And the best news…Michael Wrycraft will be there!
