SABS 6th Birthday Salute for July 1st…

Posted: July 1st, 2016

Well how do you like this bit of business?

Two of the sweetest people around taking time out of their beyond busy long weekend to send us #SABS6 Birthday wishes - it's Troy & Jennie Greencorn.

JULY 1ST PRIZEEnter their names and you'll be eligible to WIN the new book "Beaumont Hamel" by Nigel Cave courtesy of our good friends at Flanker Press as our daily prize for July 1, 2016.

Now 'busy' isn't even the half of it as today marks the start of their 20th Annual Stan Rogers Folk Festival.

For two decades the dynamic duo have hosted the music filled weekend dedicated to the memory of late Canadian folk singer/songwriter Stan Rogers, and in that spirit celebrated songwriters from throughout Atlantic Canada and around the world.

Indeed hundreds of songwriters and countless fans have made the trek to the tiny coastal town of Canso, Nova Scotia - exploding the population and filling the air with spectacular music and wild applause.

Year after year the Greencorns greet what has now become a family of festival goers and treat them to everything from homegrown award winning talent like J.P. Cormier, Bruce Guthro, Dave Gunning and Alan Doyle - to international songwriting stars like Ricky Skaggs, Gretchen Peters and Arlo Guthrie to name but a few.

Matter of fact, Stanfest was one of the first music festivals we ever attended.  The year was 2011 and with entertainers like Dan Hill and Judy Collins and the late great Ron Hynes on the bill - we can honestly tell you it was amazing!

We're ever so grateful for salute to us and we at SEA AND BE SCENE want to sincerely congratulate you Troy & Jennie and the entire Stanfest team on 20 Years of Awesome! SABS
