There’s an exciting new venue that is bringing the finest musicians the east coast has to offer to the Mighty Miramichi.
Whalen’s Barn is a 95 year old barn that has been renovated to host musicians from the East Coast and beyond, in a location where they will present their original music in a live and intimate setting. The Barn comfortably accommodates 60 guests and shows run every Thursday evening during the summer months from 7-9 pm. Now in their second year, Whalen’s Barn 2015 Concert Series began June 18th and will continue every Thursday through September 10th, for a total of 13 concerts.
“As a musician myself, I have had the pleasure and honour of meeting and performing with the very best,” says ECMA artist Terry Whalen, founder of the Whalen’s Barn Concert Series.”I have developed incredible friendships which enables me to bring these artists to Miramichi. Visiting artists will range from folk, county, rock, blues and everything in between, creating a very diverse musical experience. We are very excited to be able to host so many fine musicians and songwriters from the east coast region here in Miramichi, a venture that has never been available before.”
The series is under way but the remainder of the schedule (10 shows) is a killer line-up!
Tonight, Thursday July 9th Cape Breton ECMA blues-rocker Dan Doiron takes the stage in a show you won’t want to miss! Dan performed at Whalen’s Barn last season and has also performed in the region at the Miramichi Folklore Park in Renous. Tickets at the door are $12 each or you can still purchase a season pass for the rest of the shows for $100 and save on each show.
