Devonian Coast Wineries announced today that their inaugural Jost Vineyards Maritime STOMP Music Festival will feature J.P. Cormier, Lenny Gallant, Bruce Guthro, Heather Rankin, The Andrew Doyle Band and the Celtic Trio (Darren McMullen, Rachel Davis and Brad Davidge).
The brainchild of Devonian Coast’s CEO and Owner, Carl Sparkes and well-known pop, jazz, and folk musician Bruce Guthro, the festival will be held on the vineyard’s newly renovated patio and deck at 48 Vintage Lane in Malagash, Nova Scotia. The festival takes place on Saturday, September 19, 2015 from noon to 8 p.m. Doors open at 11 a.m.
“We’re passionate about celebrating the talent in our region,” said Sparkes. “We have paired Maritime musicians with our wine and vineyard experience before, but working together with Bruce has given us the opportunity to take the experience we’re offering our visitors to a whole new level.”
“An event of this magnitude in this location is long overdue,” said Guthro. “It is a great way to encourage visitors to the North shore with its scenic coastline, warm waters, great golf, and of course vineyards. Wine and song in one of the most beautiful locations in the world—sounds like a great day out to me.”
Festival tickets are $25 in advance ($35 at the door) and are available for purchase online. Tickets are also available directly from Jost Vineyards by calling 1-800-565-4567 extension 9.
