Manitoulin Country Fest – Brett Kissel Live Dinner Cruise

The unofficial launch to Manitoulin Country Fest 2016 began with a very special dinner cruise on the beautiful north channel of Lake Huron. This event was all in support of the Manitoulin Centennial Manor. Music was provided by CCMA award winning Brett Kissel and two members of his band; Tyler Vollrath on Fiddle and Matty McKay on Lead Guitar.

Dinner was served on land at the pavilion. It featured roast beef and fresh caught Rainbow Trout. It was delicious! The weather was hot and humid. Once on board the North Channel Cruise Lines boat, it moved at a comfortable speed and gave us just enough breeze to keep us cool.

Brett Kissel never fails when it comes to performing. He delighted the crowd with an acoustic set that included songs from both his Started With A Song and Airwaves CD’s. Before and after his show, he spent time with the passengers; signing autographs, taking selfies and chatting.

During Thursday night’s show on the MCF stage, a cheque was presented to the Manor for $6,100.00. The cruise raised $5,100.00 of that and Brett Kissel, himself, donated a thousand dollars to the pot.
