House Concerts on All the Best

Posted by Margaret Hemsworth Laleune

Over the next couple of weeks All the Best will feature two house concerts showcasing several Maritime singer/songwriters.  The house concert setting is a unique venue that allows the artists and the audience to share a very special intimacy that you just can't experience in a big concert hall.

April 15th you can hear the talents of Norma MacDonald and Ian Sherwood and on April 22nd listen in for Erin Costelo, Molly Thomason and Ashley Condon.

Join Shauntay Grant Sunday afternoons at 4 p.m. on CBC Radio One for All the Best in the Maritimes.
