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

THE CO-CONSPIRATORS (Folk Duo, Montreal)
September 14 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pmPlease Generously Tip Our Musicians
The Co-Conspirators is a Montreal, QC based duo playing modern folk music with elements of country, rock, blues, gospel, bluegrass, spirituals, and general roots music. With heavy emphasis on vocal harmonies, this duo had been compared to Ian and Sylvia Tyson and Richard and Linda Thompson. They perform mostly original music along with some traditional and contemporary covers.
Founded in 2012 by singer/songwriter/guitarist Will Richards, The Co-Conspirators was initially an occasional project to showcase material that did not fit stylistically with his rock band.
Around 2014 Richards met Katherine Simons and they began performing together. Simons, as well as coming from a very musical family, is a classically trained french horn player and percussionist. Her pure, angelic voice stands in contrast to the more raw style of Richards’.
Mostly performing as a duo, they do occasionally add various instruments available to them such as bass, drums, percussion, flute, clarinet, lead guitar, violin, cello, harmonica, auto harp, and vibraphone.
At the end of April 2019, they released their first full length recording: Shadowing the Organ Tuner (with full band accompaniment), and have been touring across Canada (first west, then east, then east again) ever since; performing over 50 shows in all provinces.
