Who we are

The Master Musicians of Halifax are drawn from a collection of the top musicians in Halifax. We’ve all played together many times—in each other’s bands, on each other’s gigs, backing-up headliners, in recording sessions, and at countless live music events.

Throughout the year we’re all busy working gigs with various bands, tours, concerts, musical theatre, club work, corporate events, private parties, festivals, and house concerts . . . and now—starting summer 2019—we’ll be having a blast playing together every Wednesday.

What and how we play

The show is produced by Mike Cowie, and in it you’ll hear a non-stop 90‑minute live music performance featuring a delightfully eclectic mix of musical styles—you’ll recognize all the music we play.

It’s all about the music!

This show is inspired by east coast Canadian folk music, traditional fiddle tunes, classic rock, R&B, operatic arias, Sinatra‑standards, blues, and classic country, among other styles. Soulful lead vocals, vocal harmonies, instrumental solos, and tight group ensemble playing are featured.

No song is ever played the same way twice. The rules are: be true to the song, be true to the group sound, and play your ass off. It’s all about the music!
