Come in from the chilly November air and join these two songwriters for an evening of story and song.

"Terra Spencer spent much of her youth in a basement in Summerville, Hants County playing piano and secretly strumming her granddad’s guitars. Since 2014 she has taken the odd break from her day job as a funeral director to tour with acclaimed folk country musician Ryan Cook after striking up a friendship with him while scooping ice cream at a music festival. A newfound passion for songwriting led to co-writing with Ryan for his 2017 release, Having A Great Time, and collaborating with friends and mentors including David Francey and Gabriel Minnikin. Bridging folk and Americana, Terra’s lyric-driven original songs and gentle, hand-stitched instrumentation with fingerstyle guitar and gospel piano draw from the intimate storytelling spirit of Joni Mitchell and Carole King. Nominated for 2019 Music Nova Scotia Americana Recording of the Year, Other People's Lives is Terra's debut album of original songs co-produced with longtime friend Jake Smith at Moe's Place near her family's home in Windsor, NS."


"Singer/songwriter Sarah McInnis, of Peterborough, Ontario, is a masterful storyteller. Her songs, though lyrically personal, offer an authentic voice to our universal story of the human experience. With warm vocals and guitar in hand, McInnis transforms every stage into an intimate venue. In 2016, James McKenty produced her debut EP,
Farmer, Coal Miner. With its exploration of family, place, loss and what holds us together, the album illustrates McInnis' skill as she weaves seven thought-provoking tracks. She has shared the stage with notable Canadian musicians Mathias Kom (of the Burning Hell) and Craig Cardiff, and has worked locally on independent music projects in Peterborough, Ontario and Wolfville, Nova Scotia, where she currently resides. Sarah is currently working towards recording her first full-length album. Sarah McInnis' music is one of confessional candor. Her writing connects our large stories to her own pocket-sized vignettes, allowing each of us to expand our hearts alongside; her stories are our stories too."
