Since 2016, Winding Roads Music Festival has been held in Port Perry, Ontario in benefit of Big Brother Big Sisters of North Durham (BBBSND). The festival has seen thousands of fans take in acts like The Road Hammers, Madeline Merlo, James Barker, Kris Barclay and Aaron Pritchett and more. As the festival entered its 4th year, organizers decided to expand the programming to include an element of live production education for the youth of North Durham. Education programming will be provided with the guidance of the festival’s production team who have experience designing systems for Drake, Imagine Dragons and Shawn Mendes, among others.

On May 14, 2019 from 4-6pm, Winding Roads will host an inaugural education event, which is free to the public, called “Live Production Fundamentals” at Adamson Systems Engineering. The session will be lead by the production specialists from Adamson along with technical staff from visiting Swedish amplifier manufacturer Lab.gruppen. Participants of the program will learn about production fundamentals for deploying a concert system from setup through to showtime. A film crew will be also be on-site to capture the event.

Margaret Ayres, Executive Director of BBBSND explains how the concept came about, “During the 2018 festival we invited youth to participate in a private sound check with performing artists. One of our littles had the chance to shadow the live production team and his response was unforgettable. When we were putting together this years festival program, we felt including education for our youth brought us even closer to the fundamental values of (BBBSND).”
