Travis Hatcher
Oct 18 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Travis Hatcher is a multi-instrumentalist based in Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia. Hailing originally from Labrador, Travis Hatcher is a folk/rock musician with roots in Newfoundland and an eclectic musical taste giving him a unique approach to his song writing.
 
Travis’ passionate vocal delivery is a staple in his performance and his lyrics have shown an innate ability for story telling – whether fiction or non. Travis’ songs are designed to ensnare the imagination and stir your emotions.
 
Travis not only writes and performs his own material, he travels the maritimes and plays favourites from yesterday and today and takes as many requests as he can to please listener’s from all walks of life.  
 
Travis released “Pieces” in August 2018 and it is an important marker in his solo career. “Pieces” comprises songs which have been written, performed solo and with bands, in the time between 2011 after his last release (“Pretty Fire”) and the recording of “Pieces”. “Pieces” is an audio reminder of the journey of many miles in the past 7-8 years of his life.
