Maritime Kitchen Party

Maritime Kitchen Party (MKP) is named after a well- known tradition in Nova Scotia. We all know that Maritimers love to party; and inevitably, the party ends up in the kitchen! There’s always a guitar playing, or someone belting out traditional songs at the top of their lungs.  MKP brings that feeling to their live performances with foot-stomping music heavily influenced with Canadiana such as Great Big Sea, Stompin’ Tom, Neil Young and more. Throw in some MKP originals, rock, country and more and the party is “Rarin’ to go!”  MKP has opened for or played with Kim Mitchell, Blue Rodeo, Men of the Deeps, Bruce Guthro, James Keelaghan, Rita Chiarelli, Prism, Blue Rodeo, Great Big Sea, Econoline Crush, The Sheepdogs and many more.  This band is a must see and great fun for all ages! this band will be performing on Canada Day from 7pm, directly before the fireworks and at other venues around town.
