Why does the March Hare have some of its performers appear on a regular basis?

The March Hare is a “gathering,” a time spent together, where the interval between shows is as crucial to the artists and patrons as show time. The gathering attracts artists from all over the world, in part because of the way they experience this place. As well, the gathering sustains the March Hare Committee from year to year and year after year. Certain people help to provide the chemistry. Al Pittman knew this.

Will the books and cd’s of performing artists be available for sale?

There will be a book table at the Friday and Saturday evening performances in Corner Brook. This will be run by a professionals from the Grenfell College Bookstore. Any persons performing at any of the venues for that year are welcome to have books and cd’s on that table. Some of the artists may have books and cd’s available at the various other venues and they would need to be contacted directly.
