New Music by Les Stroud – Barn Sessions III Off The Grid
Les Stroud’s newest Barn Sessions CD/DVD compilation follows talented musicians working together to create an album and documentary entirely live ‘off the floor’. Friends of Les, music lovers and filmmakers collaborated again at his off-the-grid property deep in the Ontario woods in the fall of 2012. Based on his ongoing belief that the best music happens during a live session, Les got together with musicians Jeff Bird, Doug Adams, Donny Reed, Reese Wynans, Andrina Turenne and many more to create some musical magic. Also included with the album is a bonus video documentary of how it was made and why.

Les Stroud Productions and Lake of Bays Brewing Company are proud to announce that the two have teamed up to produce a series of Survivorman-themed beers.
“We are looking forward to developing some truly wild and unique beers,” said Darren Smith, president and CEO of Lake of Bays Brewing. “Survivorman is about resilience in nature, and Lake of Bays is proudly based and branded around the frontier and ‘the industrious North.’ It is such a great fit for both of us. We can hardly wait.”
Les Stroud is equally enthusiastic. “Survivorman and Canadian-made, awesome beer by Lake of Bays Brewing. There is no greater match up in the history of civilization!”
The company plans to release the first beer in the Survivorman Series in early 2015.
One of Ontario’s fastest-growing craft breweries, Lake of Bays Brewing Company has four year-round beers, four seasonal beers and a series of limited edition beers. Lake of Bays is the official brewery of the NHL Alumni Association and the CFL Alumni Association.
