He’s not in a barbershop quartet but Toronto singer Sage Harris has opened Saturday Life Barber Shop with his friend and head barber Akram Bekri. In celebration and in the spirit of the season, the two will be donating 10 percent of all haircut proceeds this weekend (Dec. 20 to 22) to Dr. Roz’s Healing Place to purchase gifts for the children staying in the emergency shelter with their mothers.
