Revenge of the Turtles is a volunteer fundraising project for the benefit of the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre, which will ultimately see the production of an original CD, showcasing some of the finest musical talent in the Kawarthas. The volunteers held a CD Prevue Party on Sept 8 which netted $1500 for the project.

Many thanks to our MCs (and co-sponsors) Michael Bell (of The Wire) and Vince Bierworth of The Wolf101.5 FM/The Kruz 100.5 FM; Gayle Crosmaz-Brown for coordinating the silent auction (and all the generous artists & businesses who donated items!); Christian Tanna and The Venue; CHEX TV coverage of the event; and especially all the musicians for their great performances!

The following musicians performed at the event, and will appear on a compilation CD slated for release in December:

  • Rick Fines
  • Lindsay Barr
  • Tom Eastland
  • Jake Dudas
  • Magpie
  • The Crux
  • The Lohrwoods
  • Riki Knox
  • Bonus Numbers
  • Them Blades

There is still time for others to submit a tune for the CD – tracks are due by Sept 30. For more information on the submission process, or to volunteer on the project please contact organizer Geoff Macdonald at or 705 743 0101.
