Judy Moore and Ian Bell welcome you to the Crooked Stovepipe - a privately-operated grassroots cultural resource centre and interactive museum of sorts. We operate both online and within the walls of a 19th-century former general store on Thompson Road, in the crossroads hamlet of Villa Nova, Ontario. Our focus is mostly on Canadian folklife, music and history but we don't adhere to a very strict mandate and we certainly don't take ourselves too seriously. Browse through our past postings and you'll get the idea.
We offer music lessons, workshops, and occasional house concerts within the amazing pressed-tin walls of the old store. This website is the home of a regular blog which is also posted on our Facebook page which can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/crookedstovepipe?ref=hl
The Crooked Stovepipe's curators (and everything else) are Ian Bell and Judy Moore. Judy is currently a full time teacher. Ian is a musician, artist and teacher whose own website can be visited at www.ianbellmusic.ca
Our headquarters is located at 1437 Thompson Rd. in Villa Nova, Ontario, Canada. It's not hard to find. Villa Nova is basically a crossroads and we're on the north east corner of it. E-mail us here at: firstname.lastname@example.org
