Support SHCN

Almost three years ago (October 2014), we decided to invite emerging voices of music to perform in our livingroom – here in Stanstead, Quebec – right smackdab on the border with Vermont.

A whole lot of concerts later, our network of livingrooms/micro-venues stretches from the Laurentian Mountains of Quebec to Pointe Claire to NDG to Brossard to Ayer’s Cliff to Stanstead QC to Lyndon and St Johnsbury VT to Maple Ridge NJ to Charleston WV to Winston-Salem and New Bern NC to Nashville TN.

We understand the value of artists and we wanted to create a ‘safe’ zone for emerging voices where they could perform, reinvent their sound, reconnect with their musical roots – and their audience. We are proud to be the very first AFM Local 1000 Fair Trade Music participating venue in all of Canada – and one of the first 50 in North America.

We have an educational outreach program – we offer schools without music programs the opportunity to host ‘our’ artists for an hour-long Songs/Q&A Session on the day of – or morning after a concert at one of our home venues.
