Lots of exciting times coming in December! Particularly, my twin brother
Jeff and his family are returning from Australia for a visit! They will be
around lots so stop in and visit as they haven’t been back in over 2 years!
We look forward to this time of year every year. It’s great to see family
and friends coming together to celebrate! This is also a time for us to
acknowledge your continued support and interest in The Cove. It’s been 26
years and things are still looking up! We couldn’t do it without you…
Hope to see you soon,
Seamus and All of Us at The Cove

Blues On The Rideau – the famous Dinner & Show Fundraiser Series featuring some of Canada’s best Blues artists which takes place once a month every year from October through May (excluding December) at The Cove Country Inn & Spa in Westport, Ontario – just announced their 2014/15 Line-Up – their 10th Anniversary season!
“We are very pleased with this year’s Line-Up” says James Doran, Producer of the Series. “It’s a combination of some of the most popular bands to have ever played BOTR – Fathead, Jack de Kezyer, The Hogtown Allstars, Paul Reddick and David Rotundo – plus a couple of great acts that have never been here before – Vancouver’s Harpdog Brown and the Paul James Band from Toronto. All of these artists have either won or been nominated for Juno and/or Maple Blues Awards in the past. They really are the cream of the crop and it’s wonderful to be able to see and dance to them up close and personal in the intimate setting of The Cove Inn”.
Seamus Cowan, Manager of The Cove Inn and an excellent musician himself said “It’s hard to believe that this little Series that started 10 years ago has grown into what it is today. We are known for our great regular LIVE music at The Cove and Blues On The Rideau is the jewel in the crown. You would normally have to go to a big city to hear bands of this caliber. We’re honoured to provide such high quality entertainment to our customers at such a reasonable price – and raise money for the community at the same time. We thank James & Diane Doran from Choose The Blues Productions for bringing BOTR to The Cove and keeping it going all these years”.
Despite cost increases the price for these nights remains at $60 pp this year (the same for the past 3 years). That includes a delicious full course buffet dinner, the show and dancing. Proceeds from all BOTR nights go to support different local Westport charities. The Series has raised over $50,000 for the community over the past 9 years and the goal is to hit another $5K this season.
