Shine Blue Show – a great success!

Congratulations to fearless leader (and ECMA nominee) Leona Burkey and these fabulous musicians (Roger Stone, Gabriel Minnikin, Jon Cornwall, David Bradstreet, Tyler Cox) for a great night at The Carleton in support of Autism Nova Scotia as they build understanding, acceptance, and inclusion for individuals on the Autism Spectrum and their families.

Finally! In countdown mode…

Stay safe. Be kind.

Phase 4 redux

Monday’s announcement by the Province of Nova Scotia to reinstate most of the Phase 4 restrictions for restaurants, bars, and arts and culture events was not entirely unexpected, is understandable and supported, and yet…  has thrown The Carleton for a bit of a loop in term of shows remaining in 2021.

Here’s the scoop:

Operating under Phase 5 rules (proof of vaccine and photo ID required to enter the premises, masks worn when not seated or when not eating/drinking, ticketholders assigned to their own tables but no social distancing between tables)

  • 8 pm Tuesday, Dec 14 – Cocktails and Candy Canes – 2 tickets available
  • 7 pm Wednesday, Dec 15 – Craft Draught Showdown Big Spruce vs Upstreet – SOLD OUT
  • 7 pm Thursday, Dec 16 – Rudy Pace’s Campfire Songwriters’ Circle f. Paul Vidito, Kristen Martell, Braden Lam, Jarod Gallant – tickets available

Operating under modified Phase 4 rules ((proof of vaccine and photo ID required to enter the premises, masks worn when not seated or when not eating/drinking, service only when seated, no bar seating, no dance floor, ticketholders assigned to their own tables with social distancing between tables).  Although technically full capacity is still permitted, the social distancing requirement means we cannot host everyone who currently holds tickets to SOLD OUT shows.  Please give thanks to these generous and committed artists who are adapting with us AND please be patient while we contact every ticketholder to determine attendance OR refund OR additional reduced capacity show(s).

  • Friday, Dec 17 – Aaron MacDonald Band – NEW TIME 7 pm SOLD OUT and NEW SHOW 10 pm tickets available
  • Saturday, Dec 18 – Gunning & Cormier Christmas – SOLD OUT
  • Saturday, Dec 19 – Tevon Tynes & The Superstatics Miracle on Argyle Street – SOLD OUT
  • Sunday, Dec 19 – Gunning & Cormier Christmas – SOLD OUT
  • Monday, Dec 20 – Gunning & Cormier Christmas – SOLD OUT
  • Tuesday, Dec 21 – Gunning & Cormier Christmas – SOLD OUT

The Carleton will be closed from Wednesday, Dec 22 through Thursday, Jan 5 to give our amazing staff a well-deserved holiday.  Back in business (likely with smaller numbers) on Friday, January 6 as we welcome Loviet with opener The Backstays to the stage.
