The Slye Fox Pub, won 3 Burlington Post Readers' Choice Awards.  They won for Best Pub and Best Live Entertainment (for 3rd year in a row). Also, the Fox achieved 2nd place for Best Atmosphere.


Local blues guitarist Jack de Keyzer was contacted by PM Stephen Harper's wife to play with their 12-year-old son.

Ben Harper is a budding blues rock guitarist himself and has been playing for over a year. De Keyzer said he was a quick study. The Hamilton musician also got a tour of 24 Sussex, home of the PM.
