Collège Lorette Collegiate
Admission free, with pass the hat. CLC school band and choir opening.
Jake and Sam Menard, go by their band name Movin’ Right Along! Jake is 20 and Sam is 17, and have been playing together in one form or another for around 8 years. Their family is very musical, and both play in a bigger blues band, (which is where they started playing.)
Sam, with a low, Johnny-style voice lays down a cool rhythm guitar and Jake with a SRV sort of feel pumps out some eccentric leads that leaves you wanting more. Both draw influences from the greats (IE: Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry, and various other legendary artists.)
With a focus primarily on blues and old school country, they have recently branched into more of a classic rock feel, (think “Sweet child o’ mine, or “house of the rising sun,” but with their unique twists added in!) They absolutely love to play music together and are beyond excited to perform at Scribblers.
Please join us for an evening of music with the high school band and choir and our special guest Mikalya Zacharias and followed by an open mic. 7:00 pm at the Taché Library in Collège Lorette Collegiate.

We are delighted to welcome Baltimore Road to our stage in early April.
Influences such as The Mamas & Papas, The Eagles, The Beatles, The Byrds, Gordon Lightfoot, Ian Tyson, Dire Straits, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Heart, Fats Waller, Hoagy Carmichael and Steely Dan all colour the musical canvas that emerges distinctly as Baltimore Road. Country, blues, rock and roll, R&B and 1930’s jazz…years of separate influences, writing and playing independently: Pam and Wayne as a folk-rock duo; Tom as a blues-rocker; Stew as a country-rocker; and Bob as a session drummer and member of many local bar and casino bands…all ultimately meshed into the magic that is Baltimore Road.
Our first 2016 Scribblers Coffee House features Plain Salt. The band, which mostly comes from Lorette, has been described a a “Prairie Celtic Roots Rock” band. Featuring music from the Maritimes and throughout the British Isles, the band feature a lively sound and a positive energy.
Doors open 6:30 pm, the music begins at 7:00 pm with performances from the CLC band and choir. The feature act is up next followed by an open mic.
Admission is free with pass-the-hat donations for performers. At Bibliothèque Taché Library in CLC.
