SHERRY RYAN

CD Release

Show Has  Already Taken Place

On Shout for More, her fifth full-length album, Sherry Ryan charts a new chapter in her life with a luminous collection of songs that glows like stained glass. Blending folk-pop sensibility with country and Irish-Newfoundland roots, Sherry affirms her place as one of Atlantic Canada’s best-loved singer-songwriters. Once named “St. John’s answer to Lucinda Williams” and compared to John Prine for “reeling you in with her heartfelt stories and a hint of humour,” Sherry’s rich vocal style is described as “absolutely unforgettable” (Exclaim!).

RUBE & RAKE 

From  Newfoundland  & Labrador

Rube & Rake’s new album begins with an ode to family and friends— togetherness—as Josh Sandu declares, against a hopeful bluegrass backdrop, “somewhere there’s a place to lay my head.” Nine songs later, over a gently plucked guitar, he sings, “I won’t go picking it up, the weight of the page is just too much.”   The record evokes Blue Rodeo at its most rollicking, Great Lake Swimmers at their most thoughtful, and The Tallest Man On Earth at their most gently contemplative.  

"Fair warning; you might need a drink with this one because it 100% will make you think of someone you haven’t thought about in a while."

JOHN PRINE TRIBUTE  SHOW

2022

Brent Mason and friends bring a great show to the stage featuring the songs and stories of revered American songwriter John Prine.  He was active as a composer, recording artist, live performer, and occasional actor from the early 1970s until his death. He was known for an often humorous style of original music that has elements of protest and social commentary.

Paddlefest 2023

Festival Favourite

OWEN STEEL

Grid City Magazine reflects that, “his work has always carried with it a definitive experimental element that’s helped keep it ever so unclassifiable, yet familiar and undeniably something all his own. A fan of low-fi sounds, Steel’s music has always maintained a certain degree of quirk...”  CBC radio recently noted that his presence on the regional music scene has been sorely missed!

Grammy Nominee

ROSE COUSINS

with  guest CARLENE

A native of Prince Edward Island, Rose Cousins lives in Halifax. She deeply values being part of multiple music communities, and is constantly fueled by collaboration. Cousins’ 2012 album "We Have Made A Spark" celebrated her Boston community and featured a cast of musicians Cousins had known and played music with for a decade. It won a JUNO Award, 3 East Coast Music Awards, a Canadian Folk Music Award, was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize, and made picks/best of lists in USA Today, NPR Music and Oprah Magazine. Her music has found its way into several TV shows including Grey’s Anatomy.

CARLENE is a rising folk-musician stationed on the lonely shores of Grand Manan Island, NB. A defiant recluse out of necessity more so than choice, her milling thoughts are transformed into melancholic tunes of observation, tragedy and self-reflection.
