Winter is long, but it doesn't have to feel that way...
Since 2018, my bandmates, myself plus a pack of partiers push into the Marquee Ballroom in Halifax, NS, every Saturday afternoon to help burn away the winter. We gather around the ole piano, fog up the windows of the venue and welcome up some of Nova Scotia's best musicians and writers to take part in an afternoon of rip-roarin tunes.
It's not quite a song circle and it's not quite a jam...
it's RANKIN'S WINTER WARMERS!
2022 was Year V, and for the 5th Anniversary we went BIG. After 4 incredible years in the Local and after being nominated for Event of the Year at the 2021 Nova Scotia Music Awards, we moved the party over to the Marquee Ballroom stage.
To wrap the 5th season and to wrap the 25th Anniversary of Nova Scotia Music Week, the Warmers are travelling to Rankin's home island of Cape Breton to celebrate. There will be an incredible show featuring a line up of 10 incredible guests on Sunday, Nov 6th at the Holiday Inn in Sydney, NS. The show will feature:
DANIEL JAMES MCFADYEN
and of course
RANKIN MACINNIS and the BROKEN REEDS
