May 18 is Port Cities one of only two shows in the maritimes this Spring is here at Glasgow Square Theatre.
The spellbinding chemistry of Port Cities is built on masterful songwriting, skillfully crafted arrangements,and the powerful electricity between the three voices at its helm. The band surfaced as a result of genuine connection and a profound shared belief in the music they make together; it’s soulful and vibrant – commanding, organic pop melodies buoyed by stunning three-part harmonies. Coupled with their engaging camaraderie onstage and off, Port Cities have become a not-to-be-missed live experience.The trio – Carleton Stone,Breagh Mackinnon,and Dylan Guthro – began writing together in 2011 amidst the breathtaking edge-of-the-world landscapes of Cape Breton Island.They formed a strong musical connection as each of them were releasing award-winning albums and touring solo careers,butsoon their creative success started to demand more ongoing collaboration. At every show – whether it be in a raw crash of rock n’ roll or a devastating, gentle acoustic number – the strength of Port Cities lies clearly in the riveting force of Stone, Mackinnon, and Guthro’s passionate voices.
