What could be better on a Saturday afternoon than following a musical trail of talented singer-guitarists? Especially when the adventure takes you through a scenic village, up a mountain path and down by gondola. Dozens of Canadian musicians are gathering for outdoor performances on September 8 at Blue Mountain Village. Canada’s only Guitar Trail opens in the village at noon with suitable ceremony, a bagpipe parade. Artists hail from across Canada and as close as Wasaga Beach and Collingwood. Internationally acclaimed Canadian guitarist Colin James provides the finale, a free performance at 4:30 p.m. at the CocaCola stage.
