  The community of Elliston, nestled in on the northeast side of the Bonavista peninsula, played host to a world-class festival this past weekend as it welcomed some of the best chefs and musicians from across our province – and the country. This is the sixth year of the unique Roots, Rants & Roars festival, but it was my first time attending. I had only heard positive reviews from friends who were there before and, even more tellingly and enticingly, the festival had a near-mythic status for my buddies who are in the cooking industry. While I didn’t completely know what to expect coming into it on Friday, at the other end of the weekend I found myself with a…

Another North: Not just another band

  Every once and awhile a sound comes along that is completely different. A sound that produces a feeling of satisfaction, giving off more that a head bopping beat but rather a reminder of where we are from and who are now. Another North is not just another band- they are amazing. They are a piece of home with superior talent and a true love for music and art. Another North started about six years ago. “Vince, Aaron and I instantly clicked, so we decided to keep things moving in a new project,” recalled drummer, Brad Wells. Bassist, Justin Hickey joined the band two years ago following an audition. “The boys had gone through a couple of bassists but we…

  On the Saturday of 2014 Labour Day Weekend, St. John’s saw the debut of the Harbourage Festival, featuring artists Mick Davis & Thin Love, Repartee, Elliott Brood, Matt Mays, and Hey Rosetta! As the name would suggest, the harbour front was the setting of this unique festival. I was lucky enough to have a chat with Lorne Loder and Jon Loder, who were part of the small team behind this new endeavour.   Q: First of all, thanks very much to you both for making time to talk to me as you finish up what must have been a busy weekend. Secondly, and more importantly, congratulations on what I thought was a very successful day. I had a blast…

If you’re looking to take in a huge dose of live music, you can do far worse than the NL Folk Festival. In the second week in August, for the 38th year in a row, dozens of bands and musicians from across the province and around the world descended on St. John’s for three days of songs, tunes and merriment. This year, bigger names like Fortunate Ones, Gord Downey, Kevin Burke and Basia Bulat joined a multitude of perhaps less known but excellent performers on the main stage and in workshops. Whether you wanted to just sit in the field and be entertained, or to get up close and learn something, you could get your fill. While it’s not necessarily…

Hanrahan is not a hipster

Recently a new type of character has come to be recognized and well known- the hipster. You all know him, he listens to vinyl, he usually has a beard or a moustache. The most notable trait of the hipster is the fact that he supposedly takes little to no effort to be anything but mainstream. Lucas Hanrahan is not a hipster. His pants are rolled up, his guitar is on his back, he considers growing facial hair but he is too busy being emotionally involved in every moment in life that he is unable to be effortless. Yes at a glimpse he does withhold a somewhat hipster-ish style, if you will. I am sure he digs the sound of records,…
