The annual Out Of The Cold Concert Series fundraiser has been cancelled this year due to limits imposed on large indoor gatherings as part of Ontario’s COVID-19 pandemic response.

The annual event, which is generally sold out, features three performances over three months of the best in Canadian blues, roots and folk. Funds raised support the Out of the Cold hot meal program, which is hosted at St. Andrew’s Place and the Church of the Epiphony downtown.

The meal program is run jointly by several Sudbury churches and volunteers, and is open to anyone looking for a hot meal and some good company during the winter months, each Friday evening from mid-November to mid-April.

The 2020 Out of the Cold Concert Series was to feature the Ian Thomas Trio for September, Jack De Keyzer blues duo for October and the four-piece Slocan Ramblers Band for November. 

An effort will be made to rebook the above acts for the fall of 2021, organizer Bob Bale told 

More than 300 subscribers purchase tickets for the series each year. Subscribers who have paid for the series pass for 2020 will have the option of leaving their money to be applied to the series next year or they may ask for a refund.
