Sound Decisions – The Weekend’s Best Live Music

Category: music 319

sound decisionsHere we go again.  Another week chocked full of music. And talk about variety.  There’s a little bit of everything happening everywhere for everyone. This week’s picks include a sit-down performance, a standing room only show and a soft-seated listening experience. Soft music, loud music, and 100 year old music. Also, it’s not every year we get a modern day master of Ireland’s uilleann pipes in town. Go experience some music this weekend!



Jared Lutes makes his way to Corked Wine Bar this week for a performance as part of Emma Cheverie’s Music Runs Through It series. Lutes received five nominations this year for Music NB awards and his video for This Kind of Love won honours at the Silver Wave Film Festival in October.

A regular on stages in Moncton, Saint John and Miramichi, Lutes has yet to establish an audience here in Fredericton.  That may have something to do with the limited number of venues suitable for a listening audience, which is one of the many motivating factors behind the Music Runs Through It performance series. If you’re on the hunt for some music on Thursday, we’d put our money on catching this show.

This is one of those rare occasions where one of the best groups from a certain genre of music visit our city. It doesn’t happen often. Our festivals do a good job bringing in top-notch talent and we do get a lot of great music out this way all year long, but this show is special and one that any music lover can appreciate.

Lúnasa have been called “the best Irish traditional music band in the world right now” and “Ireland’s all-star acoustic band”. If you like music, don’t miss this!

New music from Saint John’s Little You Little Me is always worth celebrating. The band will be in town playing their album release show for I’d Watch The Day Til It Died alongside Fredericton greats Tortue and Heather O’s latest project, Laps. There will be VINYL….and compact discs to be purchased and played over and over again.
