ENTERTAINMENT & SPECIAL EVENTS
If you’re looking for some music to spice up your time in Westport, The Cove is the place for you to set yourself down. We bring in the best we can find and keep a healthy mix on rotation. From Blues to Jazz, Rock to Folk, Country to Bluegrass, Soul to Funk, we love it all. In the warmer months, larger performances and full band shows take place on our Lounge stage while solos, duos and small groups play to the patio crowds. When it gets cooler, all shows happen in the Lounge.
Always best to call ahead for reservations so you have a seat too! 613.273.3636

Blues on the Rideau: SAMANTHA MARTIN & DELTA SUGAR
October 19, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm$65
BLUES ON THE RIDEAU @ THE COVE INN
2018/19 SEASON – our 14th year!
MONTHLY DINNER & SHOW FUNDRAISERS IN SUPPORT OF LOCAL CHARITIES FEATURING SOME OF CANADA’S BEST BLUES BANDS
SAMANTHA MARTIN & DELTA SUGAR
Ever since this band’s debut release “Send The Nightingale” came out in 2015 garnering 4 Maple Blues Award nominations and major national and international attention we’ve wanted to have them come to play BOTR. Samantha’s dynamic Blues/Soul/Gospel voice has been further enhanced in Delta Sugar by two great femaie co-singers – Sherie Marshall and Mwansa Mwansa with a full rhythm section behind them lead by guitarist Michael McCallum. The band consists of 6 to 11 players depending on the venue. Their latest record “”Run To Me” released in April 2018 took an even larger leap forward involving a number of Canada’s best Roots/Blues/Soul artists including special guests Steve Marriner of MonkeyJunk fame and Suzie Vinnick. The record immediately went to #1 on the Roots Music Chart, #14 on the U.S Blues chart and received major airplay around the world. Samantha & the band leave for Europe on a 10 country tour with 75 shows scheduled between January and March 2019. We’re VERY lucky – and very pleased – to have them coming to play BOTR before they go.
