Live music with The Melberns

The Melberns
Long time friends Bernie Zinck and Melissa Vidito have been playing music together in various forms for over 20 years. From a duo, to small groups, to large bands, they have done it all.
The two met in high school and moved to Hollywood California where they attended the prestigious Musicians Institute, Bernie for guitar, Melissa for voice. Upon graduation, they moved back to Nova Scotia, where life took them in different directions.
10 years ago Bernie and Melissa formed “The Melberns”, a party band that frequented the Annapolis Valley music scene. After a good run, the band took a break for a few years. Now, The Melberns are returning to the music scene. As the music scene has evolved, so has the band. The Melberns will always be Melissa and Bernie, but they are often joined by an assortment of talented musicians to fill out their sound.
They play a wide range of musical genres, covering a little something for everyone. From pop, blues, rock, soul, R&B, country, folk and more!

Dirty 30's Prohibition Party - A tribute to St. Patrick's Day

It was time of drinking & dancing ....and we are celebrating St. Patrick's Day in style at Lunn's Mill! Dress up in your best 1920's or 1930's costumes and dance away to The Vaudevillian...an honest to goodness jug, tea kettle, harmonica, guitar and banjo playing bunch!

THE VAUDEVILLIAN.....
All 3 members of The Vaudevillian grew up loving tunes from
the 1920’ and 1930’s. Piedmont Johnson grew up in North Carolina right down
the way from where Elizabeth Cotton wrote her well known tune, Freight Train, and while Piedmont started drinking bourbon at a real young age- he naturally became a blues musician. Norah Spades spent lots of her childhood in a trailer park out in the country near Carlisle, Ontario with her grandma listening to old gospels on
the radio. Occasionally the disc jockeys would play a tune they thought was a gospel number, though lo and behold it was a dirtier, hokum song, sung in their earlier days with an obscure track title. Back then many gospel singers had odd pasts and when one tune would accidentally
play out, grandma would blush and shriek out causing Norah to dance wildly with laughter! This spurred Norah to fall in love with old hokum numbers! Jitterbug James founded The Vaudevillian when he was merely a tot at 15 years old, receiving an old record player from his grandma and Leadbelly records. He fell in love with
the old recordings and vinyl process and began learning old tunes that only handfuls of people who were still alive had heard before. Mastering his craft of playing the guitar, banjo and harmonica, Jitterbug began writing his own songs influenced by historical events in the 1930’s.

Live Music with Zak Miller

With roots spread across the country, Zakary Miller's songs reflect on a deeply Canadian identity. Both self loathing and loving, he’s crafted a sound he calls 'Canadiana Swing'. Influences such as Stompin’ Tom, Bob Wills, Hank Williams and Rex Griffin shine through in his songwriting and sound, keeping a tradition of old time music alive while integrating his own introspective, silly outlook on life. Country, Jazz and Jugband music all intersect in a Zakary Miller set. His band of handpicked, always talented musicians is a rotating cast of people he feels can translate the silliness that he believes should be an important part of Old Time Music. Currently working on his third and fourth albums simultaneously, produced and recorded in the Annapolis Valley; while playing everywhere he can, you’re sure to hear Zakary Miller yodelling in a town near you.

Live Music with Darrin Beaton

After spending time away from live performance raising kids and renovating my house, I am excited to be getting back into it by playing my first solo show in a long time at Lunn's Mill. I am sure any fan of traditional southern music, such as bluegrass and country, will not be disappointed. I am a big fan of story songs and plan on dusting off a few for my show. I will also be trying out some of my original material as I am preparing to start tracking my first full length solo recording.
