Just as the mighty Saint John River runs through the beautiful capital city of New Brunswick, so runs some mighty fine music in many locations and genres. I am often asked what’s happening for music around town so, with that in mind, I decided to start this site to share the musical happenings of Fredericton.
Please check back often to see the updated calendar of events for your consideration and, hopefully, participation. Musicians put much effort and passion into preparing and sharing their craft but without an audience with which to share it things just aren’t as fulfilling or fun. In my opinion there is a wonderful (sometimes magical!) exchange of energy between performer and observer which really cannot be duplicated. For that reason, and to support our local economy, I encourage you to get out to a show and experience live music up close and personal! Come out and let the music run through you!

Great blog! Support local art!
I love the fresh new look of your blog! 🙂
As a player and a band member, I’m surprised by how many players and bands there are in and around the city. Mind, Fredericton has always been a hub for talent. Hopefully this site will continue to grow and attract the sort of audience that will feed it with info and ensure it thrives. Thank you for doing your part in this.
Thanks for your note ‘wayneb’! Fredericton does have a great music scene and it is something to be celebrated!
I listened to your interview with Terry Seguin’s Information Morning. Thank you for the information!
Hi Dianne! I somehow missed this message earlier but wanted to say thank you for listening!
Hope you are well.
Hi Emma, we are looking for a single ticket for the Gunning & Cormier show at Charlotte Street Arts Centre in December 2021. If you are aware of anyone who has a spare, please let me know. Thanks!
Will let you know if something comes up
