“Since the early ’90s, the music scene in Simcoe and the surrounding area has grown to become a large community of musicians, artists, promoters, and venues.”
This book is a collection of poster art that advertised concerts in Simcoe County between 2008 and 2020. This colourful assortment showcases the talent of bands, musicians and clubs that helped to make the area a reputable tour stop for national and international bands. These flyers, posted in clubs, on telephone poles and walls, are a selection of personal favourties.
