Music Nova Scotia has nominated the band for country/bluegrass album of the year! Ooh yeah! Never attended this legendary weekend of music and parties either so should be an enjoyable adventure to the south shore. The showcase where you can see the band will be in White Point on Friday night, in conjunction with the Cape Breton Music Industry Cooperative(CBMIC). Get out and see the best of our island’s young talent!
The Bridge was thrilled again this year to be asked to play the Celtic Colours International Festival on Cape Breton Island. With a cabaret performance at the Membourtou Trade and Convention Center and a sought after opportunity to play the Festival Club at the Gaelic College in St. Anne’s, the band was able to make some new fans and keep the feet stompin’. Feet may or may not have continued to make noise as well in an unnamed, muddy parking lot until the wee morning hours on a few special nights. We deny all responsibility on that one though…
Crowdis Bridge got invited to play Fredericton’s Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival this year! Come catch the band at the Capitol on Friday, September 14. And if you’re around the Moncton area the following evening the boys will be sharing a bill at the Igloo with New Brunswick’s own “Backyard Devils”. It’s sure to be a shit-kickin’ weekend so get your clogs out and come for a stomp!
The IWK telethon on Sydney’s waterfront boardwalk pumped out the sounds of ‘Seasons and the Rhymes’ to a sunny crowd of supporters and tourists this Sunday. For those whose feet wouldn’t stop tappin’ all afternoon, this first full length album of Crowdis Bridge is available at the Curiosity Shop in Sydney and in the very near future on iTunes and CD Baby. If you’re needin’ a new summer beach drivin’ album, this one’ll get you there!
Crowdis Bridge and friends picked to a well attended Sunday evening audience at the Carleton in Halifax. Colin Grant and Darren McMullen set the atmosphere in the opening set, playing a mix of traditional and original celtic compositions from both Darren’s new solo CD ‘Shoes for Molly’ and Sprag Session’s self titled first full length album of which both Darren and Colin are a part. Crowdis Bridge quickly joined in on the fun and kept everyone’s feet tapping for the rest of the evening. Joined by Colin on fiddle and Darren on mandolin, and the swooning harmonies of Halifax’s own Sasha Muise and Emily Kiley of ‘The Youngest Daughters’ who played a few new tunes of their own, the boys of the bridge were in their element and loving every note. Stay tuned and you’ll catch Crowdis Bridge soon enough again in the city.
