Imagine the Andrew Sisters
and the Stanley Brothers
The result would be none other than these sharp-witted ladies with a 1950’s Nashville sound and killer charm. Bringing a shine to every space they fill with their beautiful blend of country-bluegrass-gospel sounds and extraordinary energy, the Dishes have spent the last twelve years (often backed by their rhythm section "The Plate Rails") breaking hearts and soothing souls at clubs, fairs, festivals and events throughout Canada.
Presenters love their hard-working attitude and that their down-home music, tight harmonies and sassy style get folks stirred up. From house parties to city squares to opening for Canadian superstars, these ladies always cause a ruckus!!
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!
Home Routes’ programming emphasizes artistic excellence, and diverse and entertaining performances that leave audiences breathless and wanting more. In addition to Dirty Dishes, Home Routes has brought Ewan Macintyre Band and Ari & Mia to the Maritime Trail this year with more to come!
About House Concerts:
House concerts have a triple function: they support artists’ ability to make a living, they make music accessible on a grassroots level to all corners of Canada, and they connect people -- a social engine that builds community.
Home Routes/ Chemin Chez Nous thanks our funders and partners for their support. This project is made possible in part by The Canada Council for the Arts, Manitoba Sport, Culture and Heritage, FACTOR, Manitoba Arts Council and SOCAN Foundation.
