JULY 2019 Events at The Cove

Come to The Cove in July

We just finished Canada Day Weekend at The Cove in the village of Westport and surrounding area!

 

The Fredenburgh House.

There is no one sadder than all of us at The Cove to see the demise due to a fire in January and subsequent of the beautiful Fredenburgh House , which we have  lived in and enjoyed for almost 35 years. You would have look at the structure and say it doesn’t really look that damaged by the fire and you would be right. The experts tell us that more fire damage is done by water and smoke than by fire. Thousands of litres of water were pumped into the attic of the house to prevent the fire from spreading last January. The Fire Department did an admirable job under very difficult conditions. This water has lodged in the walls, ceiling and floors for months and, with warmer weather, is now resulting in mold and would have to be removed back to the frame if we were to restore the house. Estimators have put the cost in the millions and that is prohibitive to us financially. We hope you will understand and feel our pain as well. Thanks, and rest assured that, going into the future, we will make the Inn stronger and more appealing than it’s ever been.

Mary, Terry and Seamus Cowan

 

Music and the Party

The weekly summer schedule is now here! There is music every week from Wednesday to Sunday! Some new artists, some returns and some completely out there! We had Manacanabo all lined up from Cuba on Jul.27 but they were denied their travel visas because of complications with immigration in Havana. We were so looking forward to them. We thank Ish Theilheimer for his hard work on trying. Perhaps sometime down the road soon. Check out our Events Calendar for July below OR online http://coveinn.com/index.php/events/

 

Food and Drink

Enjoy the new dishes on our all day menu! We have been enjoying serving exciting new bottles of wine, cans of beer, beers on tap and weekly signature cocktails to serve at The Cove! Very excited to have these new additions to go with your meal or on their own!

Don”t forget, buy 10 lunches, get one free! Ask your server to get your card!

Morgan Davis at the Cove Inn

 

Master of Traditional Country Blues with a humorous angle. Former David Wilcox band member. International Electro-fi Recording Artist, JUNO and Maple Blues Award Winner. Don’t miss this incredible solo one-night stand!

For 45 years Morgan Davis has been on the road travelling across Canada, the United States and Europe. His performances draw from a rich tradition of country blues, as well as his own contemporary songs infused with wit and a large dose of humour.

Originally from Detroit, Davis grew up listening to a prolific mix of rhythm and blues. The music of Jimmy Reed, Ike and Tina Turner, Chuck Berry and Fats Domino was in the air. He later moved to California with his family, and then in 1968 left for Canada.

While living in Rochdale College, Toronto’s mecca for the subculture of the late 1960’s, he immersed himself in the study of Delta Blues, especially the music of Robert Johnson. Toronto’s music scene in the early 1970’s was the perfect place for Davis to cut his teeth as a journeyman, having the opportunity to see and play with many legendary performers. Bukka White, Johnny Shines, Sunnyland Slim, Snooky Pryor, Hubert Sumlin, and John Hammond were encouraging supporters.
