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! 1.888.COVE.INN

SIN & SWOON (Old Time Country, Montreal)
August 8 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pmPlease Generously Tip Our Musicians
Montreal’s “Sin and Swoon” is made up of Ottawa Valley native Michael James O’Brien and Antigonish, Nova Scotia’s Michelle Tompkins. They love George and Tammy, old time country music, and the harmony singing of the Louvin Brothers and the Delmore Brothers. Recently featured on “The Vinyl Cafe´ with Stuart Maclean” on CBC radio and NPR, their new album is now available!
Singer-songwriters Mike O’Brien and Michelle Tompkins have been performing together for the last few years, after the couple’s post-dinner-table-song-swaps led to the odd pub gig to help make ends meet. Songs were written, and the culmination of the last couple years of work has led to the release of their first record “Did I Turn The Oven Off?”
Both have been busy as backup singers/musicians on the Montreal local scene, lending a hand to such notables as Patrick Watson, The Barr Brothers, Plants and Animals, El Coyote, Joe Grass, Mike Feuerstack, Old Man Luedecke, Blood and Glass, Katie Moore and Thus:Owls, to name just few. Mike O’Brien was also a guitar player on the last two Vic Chesnutt tours. Now with the release of their new record, their plans are to get out and play as much as possible.
WELCOME BACK! It’s been way too long…
