November 30th ~ The Ice House Sessions Presents: Steve Mustain ~ 7:00 PM @ Grace Jollymore Joyce Arts Centre ~ Joining us at the Grace on Saturday, November 30th, the Ice House Sessions is proud to announce Steve Mustain! Steve joins us as straight off the release of his new album, This Ain’t Paradise.
This Ain’t Paradise, is an enticing weave of guitar artistry and poetic lyrics as equally balanced elements. Music that is rhythmic and lively yet intertwined with tender, spacious beauty.
Steve’s music represents a lifetime of exploration, beginning with 60’s/70’s rock and R&B, followed by traditional folk and blues, then morphing into serious study of classical guitar, composition, jazz and world music. This alchemy of styles creates a rare depth and richness in his live performance.
All Ice House Sessions are all ages and open to the public. There is no cover charge. Only requirement at the door is good cheer.

December 7th~ The morning was damp but growing warmer. It felt like I had just woke up from a long hibernation. I walked outside and stood, stretching on the dew-filled grass. In the distance I could hear a beat that sounded like it had been playing forever but was still brand new. I heard the wailing of a guitar so perfect it was melting the Ice House. I looked down and I was covered in dark brown fur. I lifted my hands to see claws. I knelt down over a puddle and looked at my reflection: a firm, hair covered head with jaws like an oversized piranha. “It’s finally happened,” I muttered.  In the dawn heir, I had the right to bear.   Let your inner roar out on December 7th 7:30 pm-10:30 pm The Dawn Heirs. In the Ice House. Grace Jollymore. Your hibernation is just beginning.  All welcome.
No cover. No hunting.

    Great site with great community info. Glad it’s being edited, monitored and is not a site for individuals to advertise their own businesses, complain, or just post incessantly.
