Gold Winner Port Cities

Silver Winner Ben Caplan

Bronze Winner Rose Cousins

It’s the week of Port Cities’ pair of shows with Symphony Nova Scotia, and “we’re just trying on clothes right now to make sure we don’t look stupid,” says singer/guitarist/dimples Carleton Stone. “Not my favourite part.” Port Cities’ self-titled debut album came out last year, picking up five Music Nova Scotia Awards in its wake, and the trio—Stone, Dylan Guthro and Breagh MacKinnon—has been on the road in this continent and Europe in support of it, keeping fans engaged and encouraging hometown pride. A new single, “Montreal,” dropped mid-October, and they’ll headline the Marigold Cultural Centre Saturday at Nova Scotia Music Week. “Thank you for all the support and believing in this band and letting us into your lives,” says Stone.
