Gold Winner Long & McQuade, Halifax

Silver Winner Halifax Folklore Centre

Bronze Winner Long & McQuade, Dartmouth

Let’s stop for a minute and really consider all that Long & McQuade has helped usher into the city’s audio atmosphere. Yes, this home of acoustic alchemy rents, repairs, teaches and sells musical instruments and audio-visual equipment from its (gold-winning) Halifax and (bronze-winning) Dartmouth locations. Expand your mind beyond those limited mercantile endeavours, though. How much of the sound of Halifax comes from these purveyors or musical product? The magic weaved by the podcasters, bands, DJs and songwriters of this city all start with the spells, wands and enchantment offered by the wizards of Long & McQuade. Not too shabby, that.
