Ewan Macintyre Band is an international music project, led by Ewan Macintyre, puppeteer, puppet, musician, and ex-lead singer-songwriter of the award-winning Edinburgh collective “Southern Tenant Folk Union.” Ewan Macintyre has been described as “distinctive” (The Living Tradition), a “Standout Scottish Vocalist” (Neon Filler), “Like Robert Johnson Returned from the crossroads… a “welcome moment in the future of traditional Scottish Music” (Mumble Music), “innovative music” (Edinburgh Guide), and “a scat pitched perfectly between James Brown and Tom Waits” (The Skinny).
The Maritime Trail is a project of Home Routes/Chemin Chez Nous, presenting Canadian and international artists to audiences in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. The Winnipeg-based house concert network was inspired to bring its formula to the Maritime provinces after attending Nova Scotia Music Week in 2017. After the conference, Home Routes put out a call for hosts in order to create a community of house concerts in the region. The call was met enthusiastically by Maritimers, and the Maritime Trail was born!
