Crowdis Bridge (crowd-ess) has been entertaining folks in small towns and strange places since 2008. Lovers and purveyors of roots and traditional music, they are steeped in bluegrass, old-time, folk, Celtic and country-blues. This Cape Breton group of multi-instrumentalists, vocalists & songwriters creates a musical landscape as amazing and diverse as the Island they call home.
In 2012, their sophomore album, The Seasons & The Rhymes garnered national radio attention and was nominated by Music Nova Scotia for Country/Bluegrass album of the year. They have performed at countless festivals and venues across Atlantic Canada. Their greatly anticipated and long-awaited follow-up album, “Stories & The Graves” was released in September 2019; it is continually receiving high praise and recognition.
After over a decade of progressing together as a band; recording 3 albums of meaningful original songs; countless hours on stage and on the road with each other; Crowdis Bridge has achieved a well-polished, highly entertaining level of performance and musicianship.
Mike LeLievre is a veteran of the Cape Breton music scene, touring nationally and internationally with various acts. Perhaps best-known as Slowcoaster’s bassist, LeLievre is also the guitarist of an exciting new trad/folk trio Hauler and an accomplished songwriter. Tunes for good-times, bad-times, ballrooms, and bar rooms.
Be sure to spend some time in town before and after the show – grab a bite to eat, visit the shops and stay for the night.
Tunes on the Town is a live music series in downtowns throughout Cape Breton Island during summer and fall 2022. The program is supported by funding from the Government of Canada through the Rediscover Main Streets program.
