Bruce Guthro is also a heart-warming storyteller who charmingly tells about Nova Scotia's breathtaking universe and unique individuals. An impressive stage design is added to the mix and makes for an amazing night!

"The fiddler of the band, Roisin Ryan, sang the duet 'Mary did you know' and came as close to angle song as, I would think, is humanly possible. Bruce perfectly managed to combine great thoughts of life, a strong message of love, and the hope of a world without war and terror in a concert that brought so much joy."
