Good job, Corin Raymond! From the Toronto Star:
In the end, the campaign that folksinger Corin Raymondcalled “The Caper” raised more than $7,000 to fund his double album. And it’s still coming in.
Last year, Raymond found a studio, Toronto’s Rogue Music Lab, which was willing to take Canadian Tire money at par to produce the album, Paper Nickels.
Support from far and wide allowed Raymond to exceed his goal. In March, when he presented a suitcase full of Canadian Tire money — consisting of more than 39,000 individual notes and weighing 80 pounds — to Rogue Music’s James Paul at the Done Right Inn on Queen St. W., he was also able to buy a round for the house.
