JOEL PLASKETT 2015 & The Park Avenue Sobriety Test

Posted: December 18, 2015

What a year it's been for Nova Scotia's Joel Plaskett!

It's hard to know where to begin for the Dartmouth based music man - but fair to say if there was music to be made - he did that and then some.

WIN joel's cdFrom the release of his much anticipated new project "THE PARK AVENUE SOBRIETY TEST", to his steady touring, to the constant stream of  producer credits he's been flat out - add in the awesome addition of the Emporium to his New Scotland Yard empire and we'd be tempted to call this his coolest year yet!

Naturally the awards and acclaim were ever present this year too.  From winning the 2015 ECMA Producer of the Year trophy back in the spring and the same honour along with the Studio of the Year award with Music Nova Scotia this fall, to just scoring a spot on the CBC's Top 50 Albums of 2015 - Plaskett's work remains highly regarded on all fronts.

And don't get us started on his concerts... you only need watch CBC's Back Stage Pass show above to see him operate - engaging the audience and delivering - song after song.... seriously solid and crazy cool.

Plaskett has two more shows to play before this year is through - tonight and tomorrow night he'll join Bruce Guthro's Song Writers' Circle at Casino Nova Scotia in Halifax.

This evening's show which also includes award winners Ria Mae and Séan McCann is sold out - but when we last checked there were still some tickets left for the Saturday December 19th concert - that one will see Bruce and Joel with McCann again along with PEI legend Lennie Gallant and will feature songs in tribute to the late great Ron Hynes. What a night that'll be - click here for tickets.
