ECMA Showcases Announced

Dawn Beaton: ECMA Board Member

A big day for many Cape Breton musicians! Today the East Coast Music Association announced the names of all those who will be performing in showcases..

Among the Cape Breton traditionalists like Chrissy Crowley, Mary Jane Lamond and Wendy MacIsaac, new traditonalists like Fiona MacGillivray, singer songwriters Breagh MacKinnon Carleton Stone, Dave Samson, and bands Pretty Archie and Tom Fun will take the stage.

However, the ECMA has added a radius clause to its contract with musicians. That means that musicians must disclose other non-ECMA events to ECMA staff should other dates fall within the radius clause dates. The wording is designed to continue ticket sales for the association.

To talk about this we have ECMA Board member Dawn Beaton in studio.
