"Tim Harrison has blazed many trails, avenues of cultural expression, roads which we in Canadian folk music have trod for years, and now he shares that with all of us;  this book with lift eyebrows." 
Singer, entertainer, musician

"As creator and curator of seminal folk festivals and events, and as a champion of great Canadian songwriters (and being one himself) Tim Harrison has left a lasting heartprint on the folk world.  His insights and memories will be a treasure for any lover of Canadian Folk Music."
Eileen McGann 
Singer, songwriter, painter.

"In the story of Canada's folk music festivals, Tim was there at the very beginning and he's still there now. While founding one of Canada's major festivals and helping to nurture several others, he has continued to write and perform his exquisitely crafted music at venues across the country. Here's Tim's story  of how roots music rolled across the country to become a major force in our culture. It's a wonderful journey and we couldn't ask for a better guide than Tim Harrison."

David Essig, musician.

"Even at its height, folk music was finding still more visionaries  and dreamers.  Music now has Tim Harrison and his brother [John] to thank for Summerfolk, truly one of the endearing venues in all of North America.  I got to attend, I got to MC, and I got to introduce Tim's own marvellous music on the stage.  Days like those are just…good!"

Dave Car
Radio broadcaster  and 26-year Summerfolk Emcee.

"Dedicated to Tim Harrison who was instrumental (literally and figuratively) in forming the Owen Sound Summerfolk Festival. I know all the artists he booked (including myself) had a great experience performing and were left with great memories."

Eric Andersen 
Songwriter, Singer, Artist

"My family have been patrons of Summerfolk every year for 44 years.  The vision for creating this Owen Sound treasure was spearheaded by one of our own home grown musicians.  Tim Harrison laid the groundwork for a music festival that would become a local, national and international platform for the venue of folk music and the talented musicians that perform there every year.  Good luck on your new book Tim."

Bill Murdoch
Retired MPP Grey Bruce Owen Sound

As a longtime publicist on the Toronto music scene; the founder and Artistic Director of a music festival; and a singer-songwriter myself, I recognize a great storyteller when I see one. The stories in this book are as compelling and entertaining as Tim's incredible songs, which I thoroughly enjoyed playing alongside him as a backing singer/multi-instrumentalist.
