4 years ago today (September 20, 2016), I started The Halifax Musicphile blog.
The first write-up was about a Songwriter Circle (featuring John MacPhee of Paper Lions, Christina Martin, Dylan Guthro, Andrew James O’Brien & Steve MacDougall) and Slowcoaster concert on Argyle Street as part of the Neptune Theatre Street Party. Here is a link to the post:
At the time, the blog was on “blogspot” where it remained until the end of 2012. At that time, it moved to it’s current WordPress location.
In four short years, I have managed to publish over 400 posts, including numerous CD and concert reviews. Along the way, I have had the privilege of meeting many wonderful and supportive people (music fans, artists, industry personnel, concert venue/bar owners, etc). When I started this blog, I could never have envisioned how welcoming you all have been. It’s been enjoyable and I look forward to at least four more years of writing about East Coast music.
Next month I begin a new chapter of my East Coast Music scene coverage as I begin to volunteer with Community Radio CIOE (97.5 on the dial in the Halifax area and you can also stream online). I will be hosting a new program called “Fresh From The East Coast”, focusing on current East Coast music. I am also looking into hosting a couple of other East Coast music programs.
So, thank’s all! See you at a concert!
