Who: Mayhemingways, Bill & Joel Plaskett
When: April 20, 2017
Venue: Rebecca Cohn Auditorium
Where: Halifax, Nova Scotia
Thursday night brought a sold out crowd to the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium for the Solidarity Tour in support of Bill and Joel Plaskett’s new album. Opening for the father-son duo was Mayhemingways – described as a “fuzz-folk” duo from Peterborough, Ontario. Joel joined them on stage for the first song, and then they continued to wow the crowd with their tunes.
After a brief intermission, Nova Scotia’s Joel and Bill Plaskett hit the stage accompanied by Benj Rowland and Josh Fewings of Mayhemingways. Father and son were welcomed back home by the crowd and performed songs from their new album Solidarity, as well as Joel’s songs. It was a mix of genres and times – folk and indie rock; old and new; past decades and current years. There was something for everyone of all ages throughout the night!

I’m Shayla, and I was born in Saskatoon but moved to Halifax in 2013 for University, and since decided to stay here for a while. I recently received a Bachelor of Design, after studying photography for a year or two as well. I love everything about music and how it has the ability to bring so many people together from across the country and even the world. My passion for music is one of the reasons I moved East to pursue a photography and design career, as I would love to do graphic design and photography within the Canadian music industry.
