Tone Festival


Concert , Performance

We join up with TONE Festival at Standard Time for three sets of songs and improvisations, ranging from the tender to the wildly imaginative.

Following their recent release “Accept When”—an album that draws on their longtime friendship and collaboration as songwriter-improvisers— saxophonist Caroline Davis and guitarist Wendy Eisenberg join us from New York for an intimate duo set.

Joining them with two solo offerings are France-based artist Sakina Abdou, presenting an acoustic saxophone set that draws on her versatile background in jazz and improvised music, and Toronto’s own Evan Cartwright, with a solo songwriting project punctuated by field recordings and tape deck.

Our new ticket type invites you to Pay What You Can Afford (PWYCA) which means that you can choose an appropriate level and where possible, help to offset community members attending at a discounted rate. Levels are decided by you based upon your income and financial flexibility and are not verified at the door.


Standard Time is not currently wheelchair accessible due to stairs (a step at the entrance and two sets of stairs up to the performance space). Washrooms are gender neutral.
