Tuesday Night Tunes: The SideCats

Tuesday, July 26, 7 pm – 8 pm, free

The SideCat acoustic trio purrs up a special blend of original material along with some roots favourites.  With varying instrumentation of tenor saxophone, baritone sax, guitar, ukulele, flute and acoustic bass makes for a warm, organic and home-grown sound. The positive chemistry between the musicians comes through in their performance and their music is as genuine as the musicians themselves.

North From Nova Scotia

2016 Special Temporary Exhibit

A vital crossroads on land and at sea, the province has, for thousands of years, connected people in the north to those in lands beyond. TheMaritime Museum of the Atlantic’s 2016 temporary exhibit tracks these links as they shift and grow stronger over time, bringing peoples and cultures together across land, sea, and ice.
