IN PHOTOS – Noah Derksen and Mike McKenna Jr in Montreal, QC

Who: Noah Dersken & Mike McKenna Jr
When: March 24, 2019
Where: La Marche à Côté, Montreal QC

On what was hopefully the last snowy Sunday night for a long time, a handful of Montrealers made their way to the Plateau’s La Marche à Côté, a cozy little venue that feels like someone’s living room, for a night of dreamy folk.

Mike McKenna Jr opened the night. Now relocated to Montreal, the troubadour originates from Nova Scotia. To the smooth sound of his sole guitar on the stage, Mike took the crowd on a journey to the western side of Canada, through tales of lighthouses and road trips to the oil sands of Alberta.

Next, the main act of the evening Noah Derksen hit the stage. Accompanied by bassist Tim Jackson and Juno-nominated violinist Elise Boeur, the Winnipeg native gave a fantastic performance. In between upbeat songs with harmonica around his neck, Noah took the time to bond with the crowd, asking everyone to sign his tour diary, and jumping on a couch in the middle of the venue to perform fully unplugged. On the 15th night of a 20-stop tour, Noah and his mates gave a passionate, genuine and dreamy performance, which made for a perfect Sunday night.
