Upcoming Events

    Tim Baker w/Charlotte Cornfield

    May 3-4, 8 p.m.
    St. Matthew's United Church 1479 Barrington Street, Halifax Downtown


    The former front person of Hey Rosetta! continues his solo roll with this gig supporting the upcoming Forever Overhead, which Baker bills as "11 songs that centre on kinship" and feature the influence of '70s songwriters like Jackson Browne and Randy Newman. Pro tip? Don't miss the opening set by Canadiana-steeped Charlotte Cornfield, who draws comparisons as diverse as Neil Young and Courtney Barnett.

    Linda Brooks

    Sat., May 11, 7 p.m.
    St. Matthew's United Church 1479 Barrington Street, Halifax Downtown


    A Mother's Day-themed concert sees Halifax singer-songwriter Linda Brooks celebrate her new album and book, ORCHESTRA IN MY GARDEN: Lessons Learned From Digging Deep. As lush as the unfurling petals of a peony, the songs are perfumed with grand piano and Brooks will be accompanied by a full band—inluding a cellist.

    Hawksley Workman

    Wed., May 29, 8 p.m.
    St. Matthew's United Church 1479 Barrington Street, Halifax Downtown


    The award-winning Ontario troubadour who makes your knees weak and toes tap returns with his 16th album, Median Age Wasteland, delivering songs about the "purity of loving, loathing, and living."
