This year's theme is - you guessed it ~time~! One of the most wondered and written about concepts/phenomena/experiences - time is the 4th dimension, the soup we swim in, the conveyor belt we walk on, and one of the concrete ways we measure our collective journey through existence. On April 25 @ St. Andrew's United Church, Zuppa will be joined by some of the east coast's most exciting and interesting musicians, performing their favourite songs dealing with this most pressing of issues. With Terra Spencer, Gina Burgess, Blue Lobelia, Stewart Gregory Legere, Richard Taylor, a performance by ZUPPA, and more! Thursday, April 25th 2024! Doors @ 7pm, show @ 7:30. The evening will feature a great silent auction with items from your favourite local businesses, a cash bar with alcoholic and non-alcoholic bevvies, and ASL interpretation. This annual concert is one of our favourite nights of the year, and is a major contributor to Zuppa's continued ability to create, share and tour original work. We're so grateful for your support, and can't wait to see you on April 25!

Nicole Ariana is heart-on-her-sleeve, vibey alternative RnB. Her music exposes a young woman longing for lost love in dark times, trying to fill the void in dim corners and old memories. Most recently, she took home an East Coast Music Award for Fans’ Choice Video of the Year (Master of Denial). She is Music Nova Scotia’s 2022 Electronic Artist and SOCAN Songwriter of the Year.

The alt-pop duo Pillow Fite is aptly named: like the activity itself, they wield softness and make it sting. Pairing tender lyrics with catchy instrumentals and folk ballads, the genre lines get blurred in a way that keeps the project dynamic and binge-worthy while giving listeners all the feels. “An authentic mix of queerness, feelings, tasteful guitars, and empathetic arrangements…” -Tara Thorne.

Terra Spencer‘s sly storytelling and 70’s wood paneled warmth offers a knee-to-knee conversation in a room of 5 or 500. Her startling knack for telling intimate stories and her butterscotch voice quickly earned her a faithful following and led to songs recorded by Matt Andersen and David Francey. Recently her song Bricks and Mortar was named the winner of the Commonwealth Song Contest out of 20k entries.
