is delighted to present:

"MINE! True Stories and Legends of the Porcupine Gold Rush"

a new solo Folk musical

written & performed by Will Gillespie

featuring paintings by Susan Robinson

and historical photos from the collection

at the Timmins Museum National Exhibition Centre.


Created thanks to the support of the

Ontario Arts Council.


"MINE!" is a 12-song, 60-minute journey back in time to a world of prospectors, pioneers, bootlegger-bandits, dog-sledders, high-graders and moonshiners. 

There are many famous stories about the Klondike Gold Rush in the Yukon and the California Gold Rush of 1849. Another major gold rush happened right here in Ontario, in 1909, up North in the Porcupine Camp.

Singer-Songwriter, Actor and Playwright Will Gillespie shares stories from this particular corner of Canadian history with new, original Folk songs, digging deep to uncover hidden gems of the past.

Come spend an hour at the turn of the twentieth century!
