Thursday June 26th on The Morning News


One of the shows that created a lot of buzz at Magnetic North Theatre Festival is Huff.  It’s a one-man show written and performed by Cliff Cardinal.  In this show, the audience is submerged deep into the heart of a First Nations community.  AT 6:45 we meet some of the company members behind this tale of family, despair and hope told with honesty and humour.

At 7:15 we’ll find out more about the latest piece of land the Nova Scotia Nature Trust hopes to protect. The Turst kicked off a campaign Wednesday to preserve a little known, yet incredible natural treasure. The Bay of Islands Coastal Wilderness campaign’s goal is to protect over 100 stunning natural islands right in our own backyard.

We’re a week away from the 2014 TD Halifax Jazz Festival taking over the city. Whether it’s free concerts by day or big name acts by night, there’s something for everyone at this great event. At 7:45 Artistic Director Lulu Healy will be on to tell us what not to miss and to announce a big contest in conjunction with The Morning News!

What do you get when you combine a mastermind DJ with an accomplished drummer and percussionist? One heck of a high energy live show! At 8:15 we’ll meet the man behind the show, Jay Andrews, aka STICKS. Here’s the catch – He’s the DJ and the drummer at the same time! We’ll profile his story and what he’s up to this summer.

It’s Right Some Good eve!  At 8:45 we’ll meet the celebrated chef behind Friday’s first pop-up dinner in Halifax.  We sit down with Michelin Star chef Cristina Bowerman of Rome, who gives us a preview of the five course menu she’s created for the event at the Stadacona Drill Shed.
