The Ontario Festival of Small Halls will once again bring live music to small communities across the province this October, and organizers have shared this year's lineup of artists taking part.

The 2023 edition of Ontario Festival of Small Halls will welcome artists to venues in the Ottawa Valley and beyond over three weekends in October, sporting the "biggest and best lineup" since the fest's inception, according to organizers.

The festival's first weekend lines up performances by Corb Lund, Devin Cuddy Band, Kellylee Evans, Mia Kelly, Harry Manx and the Once between October 5 and 7.

Weekend two, running between October 12 and 15, will feature Kim Mitchell, Matthew Good (playing solo acoustic shows), Jenn Grant, Julian Taylor, Terra Lightfoot, the Irish Descendants, the Abrams and Mikhail Laxton. Lightfoot's pair of performances will see support from Aysanabee and Monkeyjunk's Tony D, respectively.

The festival's third and final weekend, running October 20 to 22, will play host to Old Man Luedecke, Ben Caplan, the Arrogant Worms, Spoons, Quote the Raven and Charlie Cunningham.
