This February and March Big Brothers Big Sisters and Canadian award-winning singer-songwriter Tara Shannon will present The “Big” Tour across Ontario.  A full 100% of ticket sales will benefit each of the 11 local Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies – and approximately 1500 Littles province-wide!

Tara will be joined on tour with one of her very own artists that she has had an impressive hand in mentoring, Jessica Pearson and The Eastwind. There will be a local artist or band from each city that will open for Tara Shannon and Jessica Pearson and The East Wind in their hometown, giving an incredible opportunity for talented local musicians.

“I was fortunate to have wonderful mentors along the way in my own life and so the opportunity to give back and support an organization I fundamentally believe in is such a joy. I was so happy BBBS was just as excited about this tour model and jumped on board. It’s a wonderful way to provide a turnkey fundraising event for the agencies while connecting my music with new fans.”

The “Big” Tour will ‘wrap up’ on the final date here in Ottawa on Wednesday, March 11th at the National Arts Centre.
