World premiere of documentary “A Walk in my Dream”
CFMA, TD Bank and The Twelfth Fret present the world premiere of A Walk in my Dream, following the life-changing events of harmonica great Mike Stevens. Showtime at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, 350 King. St. West Cinema 3, is Friday, December 2, 8:00 pm.
The film features musician Mike Stevens, who is probably the only harmonica player in the World to appear on the Grand Ol’ Opry stage more than 300 times; give himself eight hernias because of the way he plays; and be named Kentucky Colonel by the Governor of Kentucky for his outstanding contribution to bluegrass music. Ten years ago, at the top of his game, Mike’s career took a sudden and drastic detour when he found himself face to face with a group of Labrador youth living in unimaginable conditions. His life would never be the same…and neither would theirs.
Tickets are $20 available at the TIFF box office and a full 50% of the ticket price will be a donation to ArtsCan Circle, the registered charity organization that is inspired by Stevens’ work and dedicated to linking creative artists with Indigenous youth at risk in Canada.
