Yes and here are the lineup details for Saturday and Friday:

The Saturday Lineup: Peter Elkas, Roddy Hart, Darrell Scott, Ted Bishop (spoken word), Tom Rush, Todd Babiuk (spoken word), Serena Ryder, and Jann Arden
emceed by Kate Hammett-Vaughan.

Friday night Vicky Hynes, Karla Anderson and Ann Vriend are in the hospitality suite. At the same time Peter Elkas, Roddy Hart, Darrell Scott, and Tom Rush will be doing a "songwriter in the round" performance at the Masonic Hall with own tunes and some Cohen. We assume most fan registrants will opt for Vicky Hynes, Karla Anderson and Ann Vriend that night.

Now that LC tour details have been announced registrations for our event have picked up again. The list is not real time, but requires human intervention, so there is a delay in posted registrant list. We are limited to 300 registrants. Leonard is giving a very special gift, I think better than he has ever given, and there will only be 300 of them. 300 also is about the capacity of hospitality room etc. His art will be on display here also, really nice the synchronicity of that!

The house band is going to be amazing! Drummer Gary Craig from Anne Murray's band has signed on with enthusiasm http://www.brucecockburn.org/interview_ ... _craig.htm Darrell Scott is also awesome! http://www.darrellscott.com/

All the best. - Kim

Does this mean that Ira Nadel's lecture and the Barbour/Mueller talks are no longer on the schedule?

No, they are most certainly still there, we just have not decided exactly when to schedule them, they will be fantastic, most enjoyable, entertaining, and informative. Lila will decide soon where they should go in the schedule. We should not rush her wise decision making! Lol!

All the best. - Kim

Barbour, Mueller and Nadel are all currently scheduled for the friday afternoon. (It's listed as "academic talks 5-6pm" at the moment but this timeline may be expanded).

Currently they are only listed in this general form instead of having each individual name listed as there has been some discussion as to when/where each person will present. Currently the plan is to have all three featured during that time slot at the hospitality room, however.

:D
