Live Music with Dave Balfour & Jamie Campbell

June 7, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Dave Balfour is a real talent and vivacious musical personality! He reels you in! He has been the MC of Stewart Park Festival in Perth for 18 years and hosted the Wednesday night jam at O’Reillys in Perth for over 10 years, bringing in a mix of young and old local talent each week. Each week Dave and guests would play a for a few hours of acoustic magic and mayhem with weekly new material keeping musicians on their toes. This larger than life man, with a sweet soft voice will have you tapping and humming along to your favorite tunes from the likes of Dave Matthews Band, Little Feat, U2 and The Beatles. He has played with Dog Day Afternoon (with Jamie), Guthrie House, Bald Like Dad and more.

Jamie Campbell has quite a prolific past in the music business as well. He is a member of Fireweed with Gary William Rasberry & Rob Unger. Voiceplay, guitarwork and a mutual love of all things acoustic fire the songs that we write and perform. Fireweed’s reputation for heartfelt, intimate live shows is wide-spread and well-known. They’ve performed at Blues Skies Music Festival, Summerfolk, Stewart Park Music Festival, the Ottawa Folk Festival, Mariposa, Hillside Music Festival, Skeleton Park Music Festival and the Amherst Island Folk Festival. He was also a member of acclaimed Quebecois performer Roch Voisine’s touring band! A high accomplishment for sure. Most recently, he has been playing the co-lead with Miss Emily Fennell and Doug Reansbury and is a sensational tribute to the music of Carole King and James Taylor called You’ve Got a Friend featuring the best in Kingston’s musical veterans in Zak Colbert on bass, Ken Hall on keyboards, Duncan Holt on drums and James Wannamaker on sax. Always a packed house, this band will play The Cove again on Fri.Sept.7.2018!

Together, Dave and Jamie share a love of a well crafted song and strong harmonies.  Together they play with the band Dog Day afternoon. June 8th they will be performing a duo acoustic show on the patio featuring .
