In anticipation of her new record, Peterborough's songbird Melissa Payne joins us along with Oshawa's sweetheart Trish Robb for a star-studded night. Installation artist Ian Johnston will be celebrating the opening of Ian Johnston: Reinventing Consumption while 2013’s RMG Exposed winner, Jonathan Groeneweg, will be in attendance for the opening of Jonathan Groeneweg: Roots in the Garden: new work from the Nature of Urbanity.
