Ian Sherwood – At Home Here in Nova Scotia

Occupation: Musician

Place of Birth: Halifax, NS

Currently Resides: Dartmouth, NS

Where’s your favourite place in Nova Scotia to grab a coffee?

When not in my kitchen with freshly ground Just Us French Roast it's a toss-up between the Dragonfly Cafe in Antigonish and Two If By Sea in Dartmouth.

Where’s your favourite place in Nova Scotia to grab a pint?

So many to choose from! If I'm in the mood for jazz music I'll hit Stayner's Wharf in Halifax. After that it's up to the Company House for whatever they have going on there. If I'm in the Wolfville area I'll drop in the Paddy's Pub for a blueberry draft.

Where’s your favourite place to shop in Nova Scotia?

Halifax Farmer's Market. I used to enjoy a trip to Margolians in Truro, too but they closed down a few months ago. RIP Margolians!

Where in Nova Scotia would we stand to see your favourite view?

There's a look-off just past York Redoubt and Purcell's Cove. It's a great place to watch the waves. The view from the MacDonald Bridge of the Halifax harbour and twin cities is pretty spectacular, too.

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit Nova Scotia:

1. Take a drive along the South Shore, especially in through Lunenburg and Mahone Bay.

2. If you come in the fall I highly recommend a trip around the Cabot Trail. Watch out for moose.

3. Check out local live music anywhere. You won't be disappointed.

What makes Nova Scotia such a special place on earth for you?

Being from here it can't help but be special to me. Most of my family still live here. But being able to smell the ocean in the air even when you're quite a ways inland is something I really treasure. That and the amazing salt-of-the-earth tell-ya-how-it-is and how-it-used-to-be and where-it-used-to-be-before-the-old-church-burnt-down people.
