Joe’s MILL is a registered charity in Kingston, Ontario founded by musician, Wally High, in memory of his friend and bandmember, the late Joe Chithalen, who was a talented bass player in several well-known Kingston bands. Joe’s MILL operates in tribute to Joe’s love of music such that everyone who wants to can enjoy playing music as he did.
