What to Expect
With the ability to perform from a small acoustic solo show and as big as a full on 4-piece show with a highly advanced sound system capable of playing to thousands of people, the Nova Scotiables know how to get any job done.
Versatile in material, these musicians can play the traditional standards of days old, as well as modern favorites not only from a Celtic/Maritime catalog but also from many of their favorite rock and roll, pop, country, and Canadiana/Americana folk tunes- the dance floor will welcome you :)
All of their sound production is taken care of by an excellent sound technician who will be sure to make the 'Scotiables all sound pleasant. If required, organizing additional production (lights, staging, etc) is possible.
Everyone in the band loves the spotlight, so, even the drummer is front and center as their lead singer right beside the guitarist who is also lead singer. So, if you want all of them at full force, they'll need enough room to lay out and be comfy.

Fearless leader Captain Hodgie steers the ship on lead vocals while bashing the bodhran and drums. AJ Baragar makes crowds swoon with sweet lead vocals and energetic guitar. Eric Minden’s enthusiastic bass playing gets him dancing madly into the middle of audiences. Heidi Pittman’s soulful fiddle and backing vocals invokes joy, sorrow and the East Coast spirit. Together this crew really brings the party!
In February 2019, the Nova Scotiables released their newest single, “Never Going Home” along with a music video. The track highlights the band’s creative song writing, infectious energy and unique style.
