Father’s Day Special, June 19th
Dinner/Concert at Fisherman’s Wharf
With Lennie Gallant
In honor of Father’s Day, Fisherman’s Wharf will be offering a truly unique dining experience for those who wish to celebrate the special “Dads” in their lives, among family and friends. Lennie Gallant, recognized as Canada’s premier singer/songwriter, will be performing a dinner/concert on Sunday, June 19th, with two seatings available at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Patrons will have the option of selecting from a special menu of fine cuisine created by Chef Steve Richards. The price for dinner and the concert is $30.
Recognized by his peers as one of Canada’s best performing songwriters, Lennie Gallant is a native of Prince Edward Island now living in Nova Scotia. This prolific songwriter has recorded nine albums (seven in English and two in French), which have won him a host of awards and nominations from both the JUNOs and East Coast Music Awards. His album, "When We Get There" was nominated for a JUNO Award; it went into space aboard Space Shuttle Endeavour in July 2009 when Canadian astronaut Julie Payette chose the album for the astronaut crew to enjoy. Lennie claims his album, "If We Had A Fire", released in 2009, is his best work yet. Recorded in beautiful St. Cecilia Studios on the outskirts of Halifax, the album holds 14 new Gallant songs, performed by the artist and some of the best musicians the East Coast has to offer. "If We Had A Fire" won the 2010 "Roots Recording of the Year" at the East Coast Music Awards.
Lennie has shared the stage with such accomplished songwriters as Lucinda Williams, Roger Hodgson (Supertramp), Patti Griffin, and Ron Sexsmith and has represented Canada at songwriter events in Nashville, London, and Texas. “Our northern neighbor has given us some of the best songwriters living today. You can add Lennie Gallant to that list,” says The Performing Songwriter
