So much fun in February @ The Cove!

Dear Friends of The Cove,

We endured a tragic fire on the evening of Fri.Jan.18.2019 at the Fredenburgh Guest House across the street from the Main Inn. Thanksfully, no one was hurt but The Fredenburgh House is closed indefinitely. We continue to be open for business as usual in the Main Inn where our restaurant and bar, live music venue AND nine remaining rooms are located. If you already have reservations in the Fredenburgh House, we will be contacting you to re-locate you at a close-by location as soon as we can. A local friend has created a GoFundMe page if you wish to support that way. https://www.gofundme.com/vf84t-the-cove

Either way, we have been inundated with generous notes of support over the past week. If you wish to help, please just continue to support The Cove as a the great place community that it has always been! We appreciate your patience. We also thank you all for your support, generosity, understanding and continued business. The show will go on!

Mary, Terry and Seamus Cowan and ALL of us at The Cove in Westport, ON

Blues on the Rideau : Dawn Tyler Watson & the Ben Racine Band

http://coveinn.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/BOTR-Dawn-Tyler-Watson-and-Ben-Racine-Band-02-19.jpeg

BLUES ON THE RIDEAU @ THE COVE INN

2018/19 SEASON – our 14th year!

MONTHLY DINNER & SHOW FUNDRAISERS IN SUPPORT OF LOCAL CHARITIES FEATURING SOME OF CANADA’S BEST BLUES BANDS

From Montreal
DAWN TYLER WATSON & THE BEN RACINE BAND

Blues Music Magazine in the U.S. has called Dawn Tyler Watson “one of Canada’s true Blues treasures”. Born in England and raised in Ontario she moved to Montreal decades ago where she earned a BFA in Jazz Studies & Theatre at Concordia. Her powerful, soulful voice is also perfect for singing the Blues – which she loves as much as Jazz – and she’s won 3 Canadian Maple Blues Awards and 9 Quebec Lys Blues Awards over the years to prove it! Last year she teamed up with one of the hottest Soul/Blues/R&B groups in Quebec – the Ben Racine Band – and travelled to the famed International Blues Challenge in Memphis. They won first place beating out over 260 bands from around the world and Ben won Guitarist Of The Year – an amazing double honour. Dawn’s latest album “Jawbreaker” was nominated for the Maple Blues Award for Recording Of The Year in 2017 and she has another record coming out shorty backed once again by the Ben Racine Band. Can’t wait! Although Ben has played BOTR before this is Dawn’s first visit and we are honoured to finally have her here. What a fabulous double bill!

What’s Cooking in Westport!

 

 

Cook together in the community kitchen on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month! What’s Cooking in Westport is on the 1st Tuesday each month (10am-1pm) at the Free Methodist Church! Learn new skills, take home food. Childcare is available.

Join us to try new foods and recipes, share a meal, bring extras home, have a good time, and meet new people in your community. We pick the recipes together, focusing on local, seasonal, budget-friendly ingredients. Some months we have a specific cultural theme, a guest speaker from the community, or a special event.

The group is facilitated by Registered Dietitian, Kate Earl, from Country Roads Community Health Centre. We discuss different nutrition and food safety topics each month and members share healthy eating tips with each other.

The program is FREE. There is no cost to participate. We also offer free childcare. Please ask us if you need help with travel costs. All we ask from you is that you participate in the cooking (and clean up!), come ready to have fun, and be open to trying new foods.

 

Date :
Tuesdays, February 5 & 19, 2019 from 10am to 1pm

 

Event location :
Free Methodist Church

Dave Balfour is a real talent and vivacious musical personality! He reels you in! He has been the MC of Stewart Park Festival in Perth for 18 years and hosted the Wednesday night jam at O’Reillys in Perth for over 10 years, bringing in a mix of young and old local talent each week. Each week Dave and guests would play a for a few hours of acoustic magic and mayhem with weekly new material keeping musicians on their toes. This larger than life man, with a sweet soft voice will have you tapping and humming along to your favorite tunes from the likes of Dave Matthews Band, Little Feat, U2 and The Beatles. He has played with Dog Day Afternoon (with Jamie), Guthrie House, Bald Like Dad and more.

Jamie Campbell has quite a prolific past in the music business as well. He is a member of Fireweed with Gary William Rasberry & Rob Unger. Voiceplay, guitarwork and a mutual love of all things acoustic fire the songs that we write and perform. Fireweed’s reputation for heartfelt, intimate live shows is wide-spread and well-known.

He was also a member of acclaimed Quebecois performer Roch Voisine’s touring band! A high accomplishment for sure. Most recently, he has been playing the co-lead with Miss Emily Fennell and Doug Reansbury is a sensational tribute to the music of Carole King and James Taylor called You’ve Got a Friend featuring the best in Kingston’s musical veterans in Zak Colbert on bass, Ken Hall on keyboards, Duncan Holt on drums and James Wannamaker on sax. Always a packed house, this band will play The Cove again on Fri.Sept.7.2018!
