Music Runs Through It brings the Up-Close & Personal Series
Music Runs Through It is teaming up with Dolan’s Pub to present the newest in the MRTI live performance series, Up Close and Personal. Emma Chevarie, founder of the website and promoter of live music in Fredericton, said “the series will feature early shows on Wednesday evenings with a 7:30 start, and will showcase local and international artists. The seating will be set up in a ‘listening room’ style, which will support an intimate setting, as the name suggests.” Chevarie went on to explain that this atmosphere will facilitate a Q&A at the end of the first set, allowing the audience to interact with the performer. While the set up is Up Close and Personal, the larger space will allow for bigger artists to be added to the roster.
Music Runs Through It is excited to partner with Dolan’s Pub, known for its great stage and ongoing support of live music for years. “Working with Emma to curate this new series is a great way to offer even more opportunity for our patrons to experience live music, and in a new format.” says Barry Hughes of Dolan’s Pub. “Barry and I have been friends for a long time and I’m thrilled with this opportunity to collaborate to bring even more great live music to downtown Fredericton” Emma added.
The Up Close and Personal Series will kick off on Wednesday, May 30th featuring Meaghan Blanchard, an award winning singer/songwriter from PEI. A gifted guitarist, with her own blend of claw hammer/finger-picking style, and she pairs that with a crystal pure voice. Her unique ability to write and tell stories through charming character-driven songs is the beauty behind "THE GREAT ESCAPE”, her fourth album released earlier this year.
Music Runs Through It has been presenting and promoting music with the Signature Series at Corked Wine Bar for over two years and recently started programming the Northside Series at York County Cider. Having presented 60+ shows over the past three years, MRTI’s mandate is to continue to provide even more opportunity for Frederictonians to experience music at its best – live!
