PICTOU - John “Spyder” Macdonald, a prominent figure in Pictou County’s vibrant music scene, will be hosting the final Summer Sounds of Nova Scotia at the deCoste Centre this week.
Over his 30 years in the business Spyder and brother Al have captured much of the area’s history in song. Spyder will be welcoming fellow Pictou musician Fleur Mainville and the father/daughter duo of Tony and Shannon Quinn this week.
Starting her musical career performing in public at four-years-old, Fleur has developed into one of the County’s most established artists. She is equally at home in a traditional music ceilidh or fronting a Celtic rock band.
Shannon Quinn, accompanied by her father Tony, will bring a second fiddle to this final week of the Summer Sounds series. Shannon’s musical style is highly influenced by that of her ancestors, originating from County Clare, Ireland. Inspired by a wide variety of genres and musicians, Shannon is extremely passionate about creating music, and is currently studying performance, composition and production.
Tickets are $18 for adults and $10 for students.
