Member Spotlight

Scott Macmillan’s passion for creating music propels him forward seeking opportunities in all aspects of music. Two world premieres in 2019, ‘12 & Change’ Scott’s concerto for Electric Guitar with Symphony Nova Scotia and ‘Woodland Revival’ an experiential composition derived & performed by Mi'kmaw drummers, Persian, Celtic & Classical musicians. Music has taken Macmillan with librettist Jennyfer Brickenden places nationally and internationally including Carnegie Hall performing their much loved “Celtic Mass for the Sea”,. Awards, appointments, commissions, critical reviews reflect Macmillan’s contributions to the music of Nova Scotia and beyond. An integral contributor to the success of the late Rita MacNeil, Scott played pivotal role in the rise of the Rankin Family Band, the Nova Scotia Mass Choir and led Symphony Nova Scotia’s Maritime Pops for 10 years in the 1990’s. In 2008 Scott began mentoring a new generation of guitarists at the Fountain School of Performing Arts, Dalhousie University

Great EP! 🎶🎸🎉

Singer-songwriter Woody Woodburn from Rockwood, ON with Cape Breton roots is following his passion for music after leaving his job at 44 in 2019 to become a "Better Man Today" - a fine title for his debut EP.

Hot off the heels of successfully hosting/organizing 3 drive-in concerts during a pandemic where he opened for longtime idol Jim Cuddy, receiving his first FACTOR grant, and multiple successful tours in the Maritimes, Woody has set out to level up and plow through on his positivity train and bring along any passengers looking to go on this ride.

The first single from Woody’s next EP, “I Am Enough” is releasing this Friday, January 22nd with a music video and a celebratory livestream at 7 pm ET.

Tune in via Facebook or YouTube for music, prizes and get to know Woody Woodburn!
