Kevin Evans & Brian Doherty have been an integral part of the East Coast music scene for thirty four years and have been together as Evans & Doherty for thirty years. To capture the essence of an Evans & Doherty performance, take a lively blend of traditional, original and contemporary songs, add a liberal sprinkling of stories and humour, then sit back and enjoy these fine entertainers. Being equally at home in a pub-setting, concert hall, festival or convention, Evans & Doherty are first rate musicians, singers, and songwriters and will be performing on March 11th, at 7:30pm in the Shannon Studio.

Tickets for the show will be on sale beginning Feb. 1st at noon. Tickets will be available at the PHCC Box Office (902)625-2591 or online at: Presented by 101.5 the Hawk, Maritime Inns, The Reporter & Port Hawkesbury Civic Centre
