Port Cities Concert

Wed, 2017-11-01 13:40

See the East Coast’s fastest rising band on November 17!  Port Cities was formed by three of the East Coast’s up-and-coming stars:  Breagh MacKinnon (St. FX B.Mus, 2014), Carleton Stone and Dylan Guthro.  With layered ­pop production and edgy guitar, synth and beats instrumentation, Port Cities hits home with all the spirit you’d expect from its members. But at the same time, the tradition of songcraft and folk music is behind each song. And no matter if it’s a raw rocker, or an acoustic­ based ​heart­breaker,​ the lead vocals, duets, and three­ part harmonies make each performance shine.
