 Friday Night

Its’ the return of Kujo, a rock and roll  blast from St. John’s Past, who apparently have at least this one new song to share with the word. Here’s a track called “Runoff.”

They’ll be joined on stage by local favourites Sonny Tripp, as well as another blast from the more recent past, Thee Internet, a band that lays claim to being the last ever winner of The Scope’s Atlantis Music Prize. They’re an innovative, energetic band, and for this show, will be joined by Aley Waterman of Gala. Catch them while you can, members of the band aren’t always in town anymore.

Here’s some songs:

Saturday Night

The NL Musicians’ Association is hosting a fundraising concert for the NL Musicians’ Emergency Fund at The Ship on Saturday.

This Emergency Fund was established to help working musicians in our province by providing them with emergency financial assistance to ensure that they are able to afford day-to-day essentials such as heat, light and food that most of us take for granted.

“Every year musicians find it difficult to purchase heating fuel to get through the long, cold winters. This coupled with escalating  food prices and the cost of medications through the flu season causes undue hardship for the freelancing musician,” says Gary Johnston, President of the Association.

“We want to show our support and thanks to the musicians of this province by way of establishing a fund to help those in need so that they can continue to work and create the music we so enjoy.”

Republic of Doyle’s Lynda Boyd and Krystin Pellerin along with jazz songstress Katie Hopkins will be singing jazz and blues standards, accompanied by Bill Brennan, Andrew McCarthy, Greg Bruce and Mark Peddle.

Proceeds from this concert will be contributed to the Newfoundland and Labrador Musicians’ Emergency Fund. Door opens at 10pm. $15 at the door.

  • It wasn’t until last year that I came across Krystin’s performance at The Ship. I realized that there was a great jazz voice in this Lady. I contacted Krystin about doing some paid performances at The Stone Jug in Carbonear. I had a list of over 50 couples wanting to preorder tickets but for various reasons the dinner jazz concert hasn’t yet come together. Please contact Krystin to encourage her to make this event happen this year
