Steve Martin surprises at Raleigh Bluegrass Festival

Comedian and musician Steve Martin isn't a stranger to North Carolina or the banjo, but when he joined The Kruger Brothers on-stage at the World of Bluegrass Festival in Raleigh, the surprised audience was on their feet!  Innovative banjoist Jens Kruger has just been named the 2013 recipient of the Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass Music, and Martin said he was humbled to share the stage with an amazing musician like Kruger. Raleigh's been celebrating their rich mountain music and culture all this week, hosting THE annual gathering of the bluegrass music industry.  From mountain music and moonshine to mouth-watering BBQ and southern hospitality, watch for Janie Robinson's Toronto Sun travel story.

Discover the iconic Canadian landscape of Georgian Bay Islands National Park, located in the world’s largest freshwater archipelago - the 30,000 Islands.   I love the cozy cabins you can rent on secluded Christian Beach!

Ontario's provincial parks are stunning and here's one of my favourite photos from our amazing trip to Killbear Provincial Park on Georgian Bay this summer.   Fall is the perfect time to visit many of our Ontario Parks, dressed in their autumn-coloured best.
