The folks at 118 Harvey Street, are following up their successful debut concert, which featured Carolyn Lionais, Jordan Musycsyn, and Moving Arms II. The show went great! It was very well attended and people very much enjoyed the cozy venue as an alternative to watching music in a coffee shop or pub.
On the evening of Friday, April 19, the house is opening its living room once again to three performers: Al Tuck, Sarah Jane Scouten, and Steve Fifield.
Al Tuck has been a staple to the East Coast and Canadian music scenes for many years. The PEI native is regularly praised for his talents in songwriting and has been a regular visitor to Sydney for years. He has performed around town to captive and intrigued audiences. His reputation is that of a storyteller and troubadour of songwriting.
Sarah Jane Scouten is a Montreal singer-songwriter coming to Cape Breton as part of her debut East coast tour. She started playing music at a very young age, and sources Stan Rogers and Hank Williams as major musical influences. She plays folk and country music with an honest voice and lovely melodies.
Steve Fifield is a musician from Sydney. He writes heartfelt songs that often sound more like hushed poetry put to music. He has shared the stage with Tuck multiple times and their performances always seem to compliment each other in an understated brilliance: both performers with a quiet and powerful sound.
As an effort to support multiple facets of the local arts community, attendees will also be able to purchase original paintings and prints from visual artist Sarah MacMillan. There will also be complimentary food and drink served.
Cover charge is $10 and the music begins at 8pm. This is an all-ages show. You can also find the event on Facebook.
