On Sunday, March 13, The Savoy Theatre will welcome back to its stage humourist and author, Stuart McLean, bringing the live version of his popular radio show, The Vinyl Café, to Cape Breton audiences.
Along with comic stories of Dave, owner of the second hand record store where the motto is: ‘We May Not Be Big, But We’re Small’, and a cast of characters including Dave’s wife, Morley, their two children, Sam and Stephanie, and assorted friends and neighbours, the Glace Bay show will showcase singer/songwriters David Myles of New Brunswick and Catherine MacLellan of Prince Edward Island.
McLean’s radio show debuted on CBC Radio in 1995 and today regularly attracts one million listeners a week. He has won the Stephen Leacock Award for Humour and his many books based on the Vinyl Café have sold over a million copies in Canada alone (where selling 5000 copies gets you on the best-seller lists).
His CD’s are equally popular and his tours regularly sell out at all venues.
David Myles has released four albums to popular and critical acclaim. He is also nominated this year for five East Coast Music Association awards.
Catherine MacLellan, daughter of legendary PEI songwriter Gene MacLellan, has earned two ECMA awards for her work. She recently toured Ireland with Ron Hynes, Dave Gunning, and Rose Cousins.
The Savoy performance begins at 7 pm and tickets are available by phone (902-842-1577), online or at the Savoy Box Office, Monday to Friday, 9 am to 5 pm.
