Cove Monthly Musical Residency – Jon McLurg

 

 

Jon McLurgreturns to The Cove Inn as part of the Cove Monthly Musical Residency – most Mondays in June except June 17! Showtime is 5-8pm.

Jon McLurg is a singer-songwriter based in Kingston, Ontario. Jon has been a staple of the local folk music scene for more than 15 years as a solo performer and member of Turpin’s Trail, Crooked Wood, and The Goodnight Irenes. He has recorded four solo albums of original material, including his most recent album, North Star, released in 2020.

An accomplished and prolific songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, this quietly confident artist was noticed on the international scene in 2010 when he was chosen as one of only 10 performers for the songwriter showcase at The New Jersey Folk Festival. That same year, he also won American Songwriter Magazine’s lyric contest in their July/August 2010 issue with Someone Thinks of You from The Auctioneer.

Jon is also a masterful interpreter of song, with a dizzying mental catalogue of 100s of cover songs spanning traditional and contemporary folk, classic country, bluegrass, Celtic and much more. A Jon McLurg performance can touch on dozens of legendary songwriters such as Townes van Zandt, Elizabeth Cotten, Woody Guthrie, Carter Family, Lead Belly, Mississippi John Hurt, John Prine, and Hank Williams, along with songs and melodies from time immemorial.

 

Date :
June 24, from 5 to 8pm

Long Sault Trio at the Cove Inn

 

 

Linda Grenier, Dave Tilston and Victor Maltby have been making music as Long Sault Trio for many years now. The trio took its name from the Long Sault Creek near McDonald’s Corners. Like the creek, their music meanders through Folk with hints of Blues, Jazz and Trad music. With a multi-generational appeal, they have played festivals (Blue Skies Music Festival, Festival of Small Halls,  Stewart Park Festival) and venues throughout the region and beyond. As performing songwriters, their three-part harmonies and blend of acoustic instruments (violin, saxophone, mandolin and guitar) come together in a modern roots styling.

$10 suggested music cover per person.

 

Date :
July 1, 2024 from 5 to 8pm

Event location :
2 Bedford Street
Westport, Ontario K0G 1X0

Taichi courses at the Canadian Tai Chi Academy

 

The Canadian Tai Chi Academy teaches 108-move Tai Chi, a style developed by Master Moy Lin-Shin (1931-1998). He modified the traditional Yang Style 108-move Tai Chi set to maximize the health benefits for faster health improvement, as he realized that in a modern society, an exercise that was good for health was more important than a martial art for fighting.

The Canadian Tai Chi Academy runs classes across Canada.

 

Date
Fridays 11am to noon

Event location :
North Crosby Community Centre – Westport

2nd Tom Green Show Added! Westporch Fest Saturday September 23rd! Come to The Cove and Westport!

WELCOME!
We’re glad you’re here.

Homepage Image
We are so happy you are here with us Wendy. Thank you for trusting us with your email address. We’ve got a very newsy email for you.

2nd Tom Green Show Added!

 

The first Tom Green show sold out so quickly,

we’ve added a 2nd show!

 

Join us on Wednesday September 27th, 2023 from 7-10:30pm for Hollywood Actor/Comedian Tom Green. $90 + HST gets you dinner and the show.

After living in the USA for decades, Tom Green recently relocated to Canada, where he starred in Amazon Prime’s “LOL: Last One Laughing Canada.” He cracked up many of Canada’s funniest comedians, including K. Trevor Wilson, Dave Foley, Colin Mochrie and special guest P.K. Subban.

Tom’s program “The Tom Green Show,” which began on Ottawa cable TV and moved to MTV, influenced the rise of shock comedy shows like “Jackass.”

Tom’s appeared in several films, including “Charlie’s Angels,” “Road Trip,” “Stealing Harvard,” “Shred” and “Freddy Got Fingered,” which he wrote and directed.

Tom’s TV appearances include hosting “Saturday Night Live.” He is among the few comedians to guest-host for David Letterman on “Late Show with David Letterman.”

The eccentric, funny man was also a contestant on “Celebrity Big Brother,” in which, despite being Canadian, he was voted America’s favourite house guest. He competed on “The Celebrity Apprentice” with former U.S. president Donald Trump.

In 2006 Green, a pioneer in independent web-casting, was producing a talk show from his Los Angeles home. Fellow comedian Joe Rogan named Green’s show as an influence on his podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience.” Numerous podcasters and other online content creators have cited Green as a pioneer in the medium.

Tom’s battle with testicular cancer was chronicled in the short film “The “Tom Green Cancer Special.” The topic was also covered in his 2004 autobiography “Hollywood Causes Cancer: The Tom Green Story.”

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see Tom Green live on stage! You might hear some live music too!

Uncensored show. Discretion advised.

Reservations required to save your spot! Call 613.273.3636 or Email: thecoveinnwestport@gmail.com to book now.

Valentine’s day!

Free Stone Artwork Stock Photo

Valentine’s Day is an opportunity for people in Canada to tell somebody that they love them in a romantic way. It falls on February 14, the name day of two saints, St Valentine of Rome and St Valentine of Terni. In pre-Christian times, the middle of February was a time of pagan fertility festivals in Europe and allegedly the time when birds chose a mate.

What Do People Do?

Many people send letters, cards, presents and gifts to the person with whom they have or want to have a romantic relationship. Valentine’s Day cards are often red or pink and decorated with images of hearts, red roses, teddy bears, presents or happy couples kissing or embracing. They may be in brightly colored, perhaps pink or red, envelopes.

Valentine’s Day can also be an occasion for a more general celebration of love and appreciation of people who are personally important to an individual. School children may help decorate their classrooms with hearts and spring birds and make cards or presents for their parents. Stores may also sell Valentine’s Day themed cakes, cookies or candy. Teenagers and young adults may hold Valentine’s Day parties or dances on or near February 14.
