The Jack Show is New Brunswick’s ultimate men’s lifestyle show built on one simple objective: to bring everything guys love under one roof for one weekend.
The musical portion of the weekend will see Music Runs Through It (aka me!) hosting the Songwriter’s Circle on the Saturday afternoon (September 27th) between 3-5PM.
We will be presenting four fantastic local singer-songwriter’s in this up close and personal setting. Peter Hicks, Juanita Bourque, Mark Roberts and John Myshrall will share insight into their songs and invite us to experience the music in a more intimate way.
Peter Hicks is the songwriter behind Sleepy Driver bringing his many influences to the Americana Roots Rockin’ style of the band. On Sleepy’s latest album, entitled Ignatius, the songs circle dark territory with cautious optimism: tales of love, loss, and things gone wrong, hard times tinted by glimmers of hope.
Juanita Bourque is a founding member of Sissy & the Hobos and she’ll impress you with her powerful voice as well as her songwriting. Juanita’s collaboration on Sleepy Driver‘s latest album is an example of how well the local music network supports each others projects.
John Myshrall is one of the lead singers with the band Flat Top and is well known for his song Millville Sun. His songwriting covers many subjects and can be delivered both sweetly or comically. His appearance at the songwriter’s circle is a rare occurrence so don’t miss your chance!
Mark Roberts is well known as the morning DJ on the FOX radio station and as the host of The East Coast Music Show but did you know that he is also a great songwriter? Marks album, Kids from the Shore has received great critical acclaim and he & his band, The Shore Road Drifters, continue to play music festivals and shows while working on their next album.
This stellar line-up is sure to impress the audience and to provide us all with an afternoon of great stories & sound!
