About this event
Lennie Gallant probably needs no introduction - but here's one anyway:

Hailing from Rustico, Prince Edward Island, he has released fifteen albums (12 in English and 3 in French) of original songs which have won him a host of awards and nominations from the JUNOs and Les Prix Éloizes. He’s received a Canadian Folk Artist of The Year Award as well as 19 East Coast Music Awards, including the ECMA Entertainer of the Year several times over.

Lennie has recently teamed up with well-known Acadian musician and partner, Patricia Richard, to create a francophone duo called Sirène et Matelot (The Siren and the Sailor). They released their first album in 2019, and has done extremely well in the francophone world. They just completed a second album which was released in September 2023.

He has toured with Symphony New Brunswick, Symphony PEI and Symphony Nova Scotia, and shared the stage with such artists as Lucinda Williams, Patti Griffin, Roger Hodgson, Ray Willie Hubbard and has performed onstage with both Jimmy Buffett and David Foster and their bands. He co-wrote 2 songs on Jimmy Buffett’s posthumous album and had the pleasure to add some vocals to the recordings.

His songs have been covered by numerous artists including Buffett and have appeared in feature films and TV shows. One of his albums, “When We Get There”, went up to the International Space Station with Canadian Astronaut Julie Payette for the crew to enjoy. It orbited the planet 248 times, at long last putting Gallant’s music in high rotation worldwide!

Doors at 7:00pm, show at 7:30pm.
Tickets $45 in advance, $50 at the door.
