As the sun sets over Halifax, the final day of In the Dead of Winter nears. This afternoon festival organizers Tanya Davis and Don Brownrigg hosted an open mix/IDOW brunch. While listeners feasted on sausages, ham, eggs, baked beans, we were treated to some amateur performers, as well as seasoned songwriters.

Festival organizers Tanya Davis, Don Brownrigg and Amelia Curran (who previewed a heartbreakingly beautiful new song) all sang, while newcomers got a chance to show off. Montreal's Gabrielle Papillion serenaded the sleepy afternoon crowd, plus many others. For those of you who missed out don't fret. She's performer tonight at the Bus Stop Theatre at 8pm. Papillion shares the stage with Jenny Omnichord, Dreamsploitation and Dinah Thorpe.

Also on the bill this evening is the lovely Catherine MacLellan, Justin Rutledge and Jim Bryson at St. Patric's Church. Over at FRED whet bar, cafe and salon Gianna Lauren, David Celia and Brooke Miller heat things up. For those looking for cozy night near the bar, Babette Hayward, Jon McKeil and Jon Brooks perform at the Company House.
