Dave Goyetche
Aug 17 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Dave Goyetche is a well-known musical entity around Nova Scotia. In fact, on one night you may see him on his acoustic guitar in a one-man show or with his friend, Rob Filek, on percussion. Then on the next night he could be part of a rollicking group known as Blueberry Grunt, firing off Irish and maritime favorites as if he was part of a very large kitchen party. This well-rounded musical journey began at the age of four and he began playing seriously since the age of seven, balanced with doses of country music, rock n’ roll, Motown soul and funk How did he get so balanced in musical tastes? It began with his father who dad led bands in the 50’s to 70’s. The rehearsal hall was very close, the basement in the family home. Out of this immersion in various musical forms Dave became a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitars, bass, drums, piano, and more recently the Dobro,lap steel and mandolin.

Dave has been performing in one form or another, throughout the Maritimes for close to 40 years. Dave is someone we have known since way back; actually since our days at Prince Andrew High School in Dartmouth in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Dave loves to entertain, playing multiple instruments including, bass, guitar, dobro, lap steel, mandolin and piano. davegoyetche-150x256

The Strange Valentines
Aug 23 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm

HeadshotBlend the heart of an ‘80’s Australian rocker with the soul of a maritime kitchen partier, and you might get a sense of the brand of ‘folk music for the twisted soul’ that is the duo, The Strange Valentines. In demand and playing extensively out of Saskatchewan venues and festivals over the past 2 years, the duo has built a steady following. Their strong melodies, soulful stories, quirky humour, and rich harmonies, has been described as if the Kinks jammed with Fleetwood Mac using only acoustic instruments in a folksy type backdrop. This summer the tour of ‘Good Intentions’ starts in the UK before coming to Halifax and PEI promoting their 5th album ‘Society of Good Intentions’ released February 14, 2018.

David Farrell is an accomplished guitarist previously part of the Australian rock circuit touring and playing with various bands, opening for such major acts as INXS and Canned Heat. Janet Mills was born into Nova Scotia kitchen parties, and plays mandolin, mandola, and piano, but of course, not all at the same time.

The ‘Society of Good Intentions’ is the fifth album for The Strange Valentines and the second since moving to Saskatchewan. Album sounds have been a journey from more electric rock sounds to more acoustic folk/rock in this latest effort lending an honesty in relatable human themes via acoustic guitar and mandolin.

Both members share lead and harmony vocals. David Farrell’s warm, engaging somewhat Tom Petty-ish tones, or the sweet haunting passion of Janet Mills, perhaps reminiscent of Helen Reddy, tell stories in songs of personal struggle, nostalgia, and what might have been, with rich blended harmonies and some quirky twists. Ranging from the depths of ‘Bad Day’, the despair of ‘Valentine Vampire’ to the triumph of ‘Tortoise’ or being lost in ‘The Rural Abyss’, songs have an element of intimacy, inviting a feeling of sharing one’s soul over toast and tea. Live performances find an eclectic repertoire including some crowd-pleasing favourites ensuring a night of fine music, entertaining and story-telling.
