Paste Magazine called it, “The best album in Iron & Wine’s already impressive discography.” Ghost on Ghost followed 2011’s Kiss Each Other Clean, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard chart to critical acclaim. The Guardian recently called Iron and Wine, “One of the great modern American bands.”

Ontario’s Greenbelt is almost 2.0 million acres of green space, farmland, vibrant communities, forests, wetlands, and watersheds – all permanently protected by world-leading legislation. In return, the Greenbelt gives back much to Ontario, including $9.1 billion in economic benefits and $2.6 billion in ecosystem services annually. As a leader in supporting local food, the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation has provided numerous grants to help farmers in the Greenbelt be more successful; to enhance environmental protection; and to strengthen local economies.
Christie Lake is a natural paradise, boasting 830 acres of hiking trails, picnic areas, fishing ponds and beaches. The Greenbelt Harvest Picnic is designed to raise awareness about the importance of the region’s local conservation lands, the arts, local agriculture and home gardening. Concert goers will also be able to enjoy a local farmers market, horticultural workshops, art vendors, food and beverage areas, fishing, swimming and good old fashioned picnicking.
