Guitarist Bob MacLean: April 15th 8pm-10pm

Bob MacLean is an Event Guitarist, Celtic/Classical Guitarist & Folksinger with roots in Cape Breton (Glace Bay) and Quebec. He’s been playing guitar for as long as he can remember and his interest and passion for the guitar have only grown over the years. His passion led him to McbobmacGill and Western where he graduated in music education and classical guitar.

He has gone through so many phases – folk, rock, folk again, classical, and in recent years, celtic/traditional and, yes, folk again. Today he says he’s the luckiest guy when he “goes to work.” He can, and does, tap into all these different styles; and the result? – Music To Nourish The Soul. Anyone who sees him playing, whether it is his solo instrumental Event guitar program or his lively story-telling East Coast Songs and tunes program, knows the passion is palpable.

If there was one word to sum up Bob’s music , it would be “Engaging.” And that is exactly what he does. He engages the listener with each and every performance.

April 15th, 8pm-10pm  | $8, or pay what you can.

Artist: Rhonda Hewitson until March 27th


Racing-ThoughtsRhonda Hewitson is displaying her work for the second time at The Joint Cafe until March 27th. You can find glimpses of her work on social media and her website. Here’s her Artist’s statement: 

Art for me is a form of catharsis; A way to escape the every day. Canvas’ are like personal journals. Whatever mood or emotion is in me at the time is poured out on the canvas. Mostly these are abstract, candid glimpses into my thoughts, that I use as inspiration. The end result is a vivid projection made with acrylics, oils and textured mediums.

Colour is not my enemy, but rather my comfort. I take joy in bright, vivid and bold pieces that spark conversation in an attempt to release the anxieties of every day life. I also prefer the use of a pallet knife, as the images are usually more raw and blunt and more accurately depict the vision I am creating.

My work is guided by my emotions and feelings. I start with a concept, crank up some music and let my mood, surroundings and the initial concept inspire my decisions. Sometimes the concept is solidified, sometimes the direction of the piece changes completely once, twice or many more times before I am finished. In the end, all I am looking for is something that tells a story and moves the viewer in some way. I am a self taught Graphic Artist, Painter and Photographer. I held my first art exhibit in February, 2015. For the last 11 years I have enjoyed a successful career as a Marketing Coordinator and Graphic Designer, which initially generated the idea of painting as a creative outlet.
