PTBOPics: Ptarmigan Playing At The Silver Bean


Art Folk band Ptarmigan returned to Peterborough as part of their Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Lowlands Tour on Sunday. The rain didn't keep family, friends and fans away as the Silver Bean Cafe was a great setting for the band to play.

The band had their CD release party here in Peterborough at the Gordon Best last year. You can follow Ptarmigan on Bandcamp and Facebook.


Silver Bean #TweetUp On The Water!

Our DBIA featured business of the week, Silver Bean, opens today for the season. To top it off, there is a #BeanUP from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m and they now carry Kawartha Dairy Ice cream!
