Shanty-rockers Callehan, with able support from Ryan Roberts, return to The Carleton on Thursday, March 7th! Come and enjoy a great evening of folk / americana tunes with these fine dudes. NO COVER! Instead, this event will be raising money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Great music and great food – all while helping kids with type 1 diabetes. Hope to see you soon.
Callehan is a four piece Folk/Americana performing and recording group from Nova Scotia.
To share a moment and to have fun in the simplest of forms enjoying a beer, the company of many or a few, from bar and brewery to lake and campfire is the purest of human experiences.
Callehan is about the story: Maritime folklore, Irish blessings, philosophy of life, all gift wrapped in music. Grab a drink and pull up a spot at the campfire.
