Who: Ronok Sarkar, Carmel Mikol
When: June 3, 2017
Venue: The Music Room
Where: Halifax, Nova Scotia
Music lovers made their way to Halifax’s North-end on Saturday night to take in the music of Ronok Sarkar and Carmel Mikol at The Music Room. This was an album release concert to celebrate singer-songwriter Carmel Mikol’s new album Daughter of a Working Man, which is her first solo release in 5 years. Ronok Sarkar—from the band Bend the River—was there to open the night as a solo artist. He played many beautiful songs with his acoustic guitar and harmonica, as well as having a couple special guests sing with him for a few songs. Carmel Mikol was next and was joined by guitarist Nick Maclean. She played a stripped down set compared to the music on her album, and played known songs as well as a brand new song that isn’t on any album. In addition to songs on guitar, Mikol also performed a handful on The Music Room’s gorgeous Steinway grand piano in the small intimate concert hall.

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.
