The 11th edition of the pub party in the old chapel at Holy Trinity is fast approaching. This Saturday night our featured artist will be Kim Cole. A fixture on the Toronto busker scene, Kim is a great singer/songwriter who has released two excellent albums to date. I’ve been a fan of hers for a couple of years and am really excited to have her join us this month. She keeps a low profile online, but you can catch a flavour in this snippet from the subway a couple years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djgMw9Kxx6U
