Limestone Chorus brought the party to the Burdock in Toronto to celebrate the release of their latest album Deer Friends.

Featuring Lake Forest’s humble crooning and acoustic tunes, Shanti & Vale’s heartwarming performance, A Fellow Ship’s high energy dance numbers, and Limestone Chorus’ soulful folk, the show had something for everyone.

Lake Forest opened the evening with an intimate set of ambient folk tunes that seem minimalistic in nature, yet effectively draw in the audience. As fans began piling into the venue, Lake Forest provided the perfect atmosphere to capture their attention. Lake Forest’s music is raw and stripped down, which allows the listener to easily focus on the theme of each song.
