Now in its third season, String Bone Presents! brings the best of Canadian folk-roots to the stage at Stratford's Revival House with eight (8) concerts each season.

Revival House, formerly the Church Restaurant, is one of Stratford’s most iconic buildings. A former Baptist church-turned-fine dining restaurant, Revival House is co-owned and operated by Stratford native Rob Wigan and his wife Candice Wigan. The 1,676-square-metre property was gutted in the spring of 2014 and its majestic interior transformed into a “smart casual” restaurant and lounge with an expansive kitchen that embraces the local farm to table concept. Revival House was featured in enRoute, Air Canada’s inflight travel magazine, as a “must visit” spot to enjoy while visiting southern Ontario.
