    I saw the Walk Off The Earth video a few days ago. Blew my mind.
    While surfing the web the next day I found out they were booked to play just up the road from me, the annual Wiarton Willie Groundhog Festival on Feb 4.
    Seemed like too great of a coincidence to ignore.
    Anyhoo, if you or your readers want to come up to the Great White North in the dead of winter, please check it out here: http://www.wiartonwilliefestival.com

    It’s an interesting view, and surprising how close they are in virtually every respect.
