Blues on the Rideau – Samantha Martin Trio




BOTR @ The Cove had to cancel the last 3 shows of the 2019/20 Season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Like everyone we were hoping things would be back to semi-normal by now and the 2020/21 Series would be able to proceed. Sadly that hasn’t happened yet. Given the COVID-19 Safety Protocol measures still in effect there was no way we could return with the traditional format – i.e. full electric bands, 100+ person capacity, buffet dinners, packed dance floor, etc

So – it was cancel the Season or get creative and adjust so we can continue to bring in some of Canada’s best Blues, Soul and R&B artists into the comfortable, intimate setting of The Cove, combine in with a great meal and donate proceeds from the shows to help local charities (who are hurting more than ever due to the pandemic) – and do it with SAFETY FIRST for all concerned. Here’s what we’ve come up with:

The Fall Series is a 3 Engagement – 2 Shows per Engagement – Series running once a month in September, October & November. Depending on how these shows go we will consider continuing with a Winter (January, February, March) and Spring (April, May, June) Series.

The Series will feature Duos & Trios playing great “sit-and-listen” Blues. Full COVID safety protocol will be TOP PRIORITY at all times. 50 person capacity (half the normal) with 6’ distancing between tables. 12” distancing between the artists and the nearest audience member. All staff will be wearing masks. Everyone entering The Cove will be required to wear masks and when circulating in the room (but they can be removed at the tables). Hand sanitizer will be everywhere and all will be encouraged to use it regularly throughout the night, not just on entering and leaving the building. Use of bathrooms will be restricted to one person at a time. Plated meals will be brought to the tables by Cove staff instead of a buffet. All surfaces will be sanitized regularly. We believe that if everyone follows these safety measures we can all safely enjoy a night out of great LIVE music!

Performances will include a delicious full course meal, the show and Door Prizes with proceeds going to support different local charities – all for only $70 pp (plus HST).

Note: To date the BOTR @ The Cove Series has raised over $74K for local Westport charities.

ADVANCE RESERVATIONS are required for all Shows and we encourage everyone to book ahead to avoid disappointment – especially with the reduced seating capacity.

Rate: $70.
