We’re famous in this province for smiling on our brothers and the desire to help with this year’s Playing for Change Day is so large that one venue is simply not enough. So now there are two, and to accommodate all those who want to share and inspire some love, this years’ event will also feature dancers, drummers, story-tellers and even circus performers! So, come on down to fill your ears and open your heart. Admission to the concert at either location is by donation. These can be accepted at the Artful Dodger and at Sawchyn Guitars either before or during Playing for Change Day.
Remember, the two venues for Playing for Change Saskatchewan are:
The Artful Dodger, 1631 11th Avenue from11:00 am until Midnight;
And Sawchyn Guitars, 2132 Dewdney Avenue from 12 Noon until 3:00 pm.
