An Evening of Poetry & Jazz, November 25, 1995, Market Hall, Peterborough: Michael Snow & Jack Vorvis performed a set of free improvisation and then Paul Haines presented his videos. The show sold out. It was produced by Daniel Kernohan in cooperation with Artspace and the Kawartha Jazz Society. Haines produced a number of audio cassette "mystery tapes", mostly drawn from his personal recording collection. These were not commercially issued but only passed around to friends and associates.
