Subject: Nova Scotis Song Circles (Singarounds)

We seem to be visiting Nova Scotia for three weeks from Tuesday May 12 2009.

Anyone got any ideas of Song Circles/Singarounds [not sure what they are called in Canada] we could visit.

BTW this is forward planning for me, I'd usually ask this sort of question the day before I leave at the earliest.

Thanks

Simon

Hi Simon. We forgive you.

Not a lot of song circles. If you're in Halifax, we have a couple of places to check out. Halifax's Harbour Folk Society has a monthly Kitchen Party with a Feature and then a song circle after. This happens on the Saturday May 16th at 8PM. This month's feature is a man/wife combo, James and June Crouse. James is a fabulous guitar player.

As well there is the Rose and Kettle Concert Sessions also held at the same location. This begins earlier, at 7PM, and this week's (Thursday May 14th)feature is a Songwriter's Circle. One of the songwriters this week will be Al Macdonald. He's the creator of Heading for Halifax and There ain't no flies on King John, plus many many more.

If you need directions:Cole Harbour Farm Museum. The Rose and Kettle Tearoom is part of the Cole Harbour Farm museum and is at 471 Poplar Drive. You can put it into Google Maps.

Thanks George I enjoyed looking at the links you provided. i wanted to help but not to close anymore. I just received the N.S Summerscapes calender of activities for June up to December but nothing for May. Keeping my fingers crossed to take a trip East this summer. Maybe a pit stop to see Gnu in Moncton.

And, of course, there's a lot of singing in some of the pubs. Not all of them, though.

Thanks guys. I've just started watching again. We are currently in Royal Annapolis and intend to be up in Cape Breton at the end of the month.

As always we keep being in the wrong place geographically. There is some hope ofa Jam around here on Thursday and thing there is something on Wolfville on Sunday.

Thanks again for all the help.

Simon

I've got to say Nova Scotia is a wonderful place. Even in down town Halifax cars stop at pedestrian crossing cause the driver's think you might want to cross even though you are still yards away.

So far everyone is wonderfully helpful, but it is the beginning of the season. I wonder what they are like by October.

You don't seem to put much faith in the wonderful helpfulness of Nova Scotians. And you're right - the first time you let your guard down, it'll be the knife between the ribs. But in the meantime, enjoy yourself!

I was only wondering, I'm not going to be around at the end of the season, but from everything I've seen so far Nova Scotia is a place to be relaxed and just enjoy the wonderful place and people. Spent 8 hours at a kitchen jam in Young's Cove near Annapolis Royal last night - 7pm - 1am, all of it great fun.

I have a permathread on Song Circle Locations, which has the Canadian provinces toward the end of the postings. How about posting details to that thread?
