Sunset Saloon Tenth Anniversary!

On April 10, 2009 a big, beautiful dream came true when I was able to put together a room packed full of music lovers and some musicians that many of them had never seen before. Every person left a big fan and it kindled relationships with fans and performers that have lasted to this day. Since then, we’ve met so many great musicians and so many excited and passionate fans, and we’ve been blessed to have had the best seats in the house.

It’s true that things aren’t as easy as they once were, so we don’t do nearly as many shows as we once did, but so long as there are talented musicians with nowhere else to play and generous fans looking to hear amazing music in an intimate setting, we’ll keep the shows coming whenever we can.

Here’s a look back at our first 10 years. What are your favourite Sunset Saloon performances & memories? Please let us know and stay tuned for more exciting shows!

Episode #783

Well, it looks as if, at long last, our miserable winter is on its way out. Spring Break is here and the kids (and teachers) are out of school and that’s got some of us heading off on a rejuvenating vacation. Even if you’re not headed somewhere warm, some of today’s songs about sun, travel, beaches, and oceans should get you feeling a little warmer and more relaxed.
