Music speaks what cannot be expressed,
soothes the mind and gives it rest,
heals the heart and makes it whole,
flows from the heavens to the soul.
Whether you're a kid that loves to laugh, an inspiring singer looking to learn some new techniques, a local that just wants to dance, or a visitor hoping to take home a Nova Scotian made craft, you'll find it all and more at this year's Harmony Bazaar Festival taking place this weekend (July 23-25) in Lockeport, Nova Scotia.
Harmony Bazaar is fast becoming one of Nova Scotia's top music festivals and the beautiful seaside town of Lockeport is doing amazing things to help it to grow. A new concert venue has been built in the middle of town with a tower reminiscent of a lighthouse complete with a stage in front. Take in the amazing view and stroll Lockeport's famous Crescent Beach while you are in town.
This year's festival, which is in its fifth year, is headlining the group Quartette which features Canadian music legend Sylvia Tyson, as well as Cindy Church, Gwen Swick, and Caitlin Hanford. Also taking the stage during the weekend will be Irish Mythen, Coco Love Alcorn, Norma MacDonald and Christina Martin, just to name a few. There will be lots of local talent throughout the days musical showcases and concerts including Lynne Crowell, Shelly MacIntosh, Jade Bennett, Judi Cleveland and Shelley Meisner.
Vocal workshops, arts and crafts, delicious homemade meals, singing, dancing and a whole lot of fun are all on tap this weekend in Lockeport. Martin Luther once said "Who loves not wine, women and song, remains a fool his whole life long.". Harmony Bazaar takes care of all three of these, so don't remain a fool, join us this weekend in Lockeport!
