Music This Week:

Friday 24 ~ Meaghan Blanchard, 9pm, $10. “She is definitely an artist with a vision of how to use her wonderful voice and pair it up with songs that truly move you as a listener.” Maverick UK 
Meaghan Blanchard is a singer/songwriter from Hunter River, PEI.  She draws a lot of her inspiration for performing and songwriting from her grandparents and the memories of the Saturday night dances at the community hall where she got to hear them play. The latest album “She’s Gonna Fly” brought Meaghan her second ECMA award in April 2014 along with two Music PEI awards earlier in the year.
  
Saturday 25 ~ Kim Koren, 9pm, $5.  It’s one of those tales straight out of a storybook. Born, bred and still living in a blink-and-you’ll miss-it small town, nestled in a valley below the Niagara escarpment in rural Ontario, Canada, singer/songwriter Kim Koren draws from her roots to deliver an uncompromising musical melange from alternative country rock to beautiful ballads! 

Sunday 26 ~ Please Note: This Sunday we are hosting the Celtic Knights and Steve Cater with Ellen Daly in a ‘by donation’ event to support the Salvation Army.  (Not an Open Mic/Jam FYI, we apologize for any confusion or inconvenience.)  The Rubber Boots Buffet will be served as usual ($15, AYCE) from 2-8pm, and a tip jar for the band will be out to collect donations for the Sally Ann, should you like to contribute.  See you Sunday!

If you are unfamiliar with Tom Wilson (the creative force behind LHO), he is a veteran of the Canadian music scene and has been a writer and performer for many years. Wilson's eclectic musical style has ranged from the psychobilly/ R&B sounds of The Florida Razors, to the western/roots style of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings and the funk/blues inspired rock of Junkhouse.  LeE HARVeY OsMOND is his most recent project, a collaborative effort with members of The Cowboy Junkies and The Skydiggers.
