Summer Sounds of Nova Scotia

Last night I went to the deCoste Centre in Pictou to catch the first show in the season of Summer Sounds in Nova Scotia. John 'Spyder' MacDonald hosted the show and was joined by fiddler Fleur Mainville, guitarist Ross MacVicar and multi-instrumentalist Mark Haines. In this ceilidh style presentation all the musicians stay on stage throughout the show and often join in with each other's tunes. I had a terrific evening, and it was enjoyed by visitors from as far afield as the USA, Alberta and Scotland.

You can catch this show every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening throughout July and August. It's a must see if you are in the area this summer and an experience not to be missed. Every week there is a different line-up of musicians, and I will be going back at every chance I get. Next week the line up is Jimmy Sweeney, Alycia Putnam & family, and Ardyth & Jennifer.

See you there.
