The 10th edition of Shivering Songs Festival has come & gone and left quite an impression! The all NB born artist line-up resulted in record attendance & the Snow Dome was a huge hit! I’ve heard some people are suffering the post-festival blues and I’d like to help relieve the pain. Are you aware that Shivering Songs also presents individual shows throughout the year? In fact they have four upcoming shows and tickets are moving fast. Take a look at the shows below and pick your tickets up today.
Ben Caplan Tuesday, February 25 at the Wilmot Church (Doors 7PM / Show 8PM)
Ben is songwriter, performer and entertainer who from the moment he walks onto the stage, fills you with his infectious spirit, and captivating presence. He is touring with a fresh batch of songs which were originally composed for a new musical play called Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story. The music from his theatre production has been turned into his third studio album, titled Old Stock which is rooted in Caplan’s resonant baritone voice, supported with the sounds of piano, accordion, organ, clarinet, saxophone, violin, drums, and the occasional banjo and acoustic guitar.
Rose Cousins with John Paul White Friday, March 20 at the Wilmot Church (Doors 7PM / Show 8PM)

Seriously, she is exceptionally talented at using humour and has an “ability to convey the most internalized emotions — disappointment, grief, resolve, forbearance — without an ounce of fuss.” You have to experience Rose in a live music setting to truly understand her brilliance. She has toured with Mary Chapin Carpenter, Jann Arden and Patty Griffin.
