Toronto, ON-based Daniel Tate has worked in the concert industry for several years and began The Flyer Vault project in 2015. His efforts to chronicle Toronto’s live music history have been featured in the Globe and Mail, NOW, Vice, and on blogTO.
Toronto’s GRAMMY award winner and professor of music at York University, Rob Bowman has been writing about music for more than 40 years.
The two teamed up on the brand new book, The Flyer Vault: 150 Years of Toronto Concert History.
Born from the popular Instagram account of the same name, The Flyer Vault runs the gamut of musical genres — from vaudeville to techno and everything in between — using Tate’s extensive collection of concert posters and flyers to illustrate the breadth of Toronto’s musical history.
Complementing the stunning visuals are stories highlighting iconic moments in legendary music venues across the city, including the Horseshoe Tavern, Massey Hall, The Rock Pile, the Edge, and many more.
