The Napatak Ramble
The Napatak Ramble is two day music festival. It started in the back yard of a council member with two performing artists and a nice gathering of friends. Each year it has grown with more featured musicians and bands and larger and larger crowds. It eventually out grew the original venue in Napatak and relocated to Rabbit Creek, a beautiful outdoor venue that can accommodate the growing crowds. Visit the Ramble web site for more information.
Spacious, isolated, with lots of woods for a warm acoustic sound, filled with music-loving people and plenty of good cheer. The crowd was wonderful! The setting, sound and weather were perfect along with the good food and beverages. This was one of the most memorable shows of the tour. It doesn’t get better than this! – Alan Gerber, Musician, Quebec.
The Napatak Ramble was the highlight of my tour. The ramble has a festival atmosphere with a large engaged crowd who didn’t want the music to end! – Dave Russel, Musician Windsor On.
