The ECMA’s are taking place in Corner Brook, Newfoundland this weekend, and I had the pleasure of checking out a couple of the fantastic shows last night.
First up was Shanneyganock. I just love this band. They had King Henry’s Pub at the Glynmill Inn rockin’ with great toe-tapping music. What a fantastic group of talented individuals. If you ever have a chance to take in one of their shows, don’t miss it. For information on the upcoming shows, their website is www.shanneyganock.ca
Next up was the Songwriter Association of Canada’s show at the Palace Theatre, hosted by Bruce Guthro. Bruce Guthro is from Sydney Mines Nova Scotia, and not only a great singer, but a talented songwriter as well. If you are not familiar with this man’s music, check out ‘Walk This Road’, ‘Falling’, ‘Touch’ or ‘Here for You’. Those are a few of my favorites.
Joining Bruce on Stage for the Bluebird North Showcase was Chris Picco from Newfoundland, J.D. Clark from Nova Scotia, Don Brownrigg and Steven Bowers. Overall, a fantastic night.
We have the most talented musicians from Eastern Canada in our city right now. Take advantage while you can.
