Eastern Canadian Maritimes

"On his visits to Nova Scotia, Lee has captured how our music defines who we are, where we are, and what we are to each other. His songs are sensitive and well-crafted. They fit and flowed well in my Ceilidh and Celtic Fringe programs when I was at CJFX."

-- Ray MacDonald, CJFX Radio (retired)
Antigonish, Nova Scotia

"Your collaborative effort with Ron Hynes on 'The Golden Ribbon' is first class, sir, a wonderful song and I salute you!"

-- Eric MacEwen, "The Eric MacEwen Show"

On his first trip to Nova Scotia in 1991, Lee fell in love with its people, its music and its culture. His songwriting since then has been influenced dramatically by such Maritime artists as The Rankin Family, The Barra MacNeils, John Allan Cameron, Allister MacGillivray, Rita MacNeil, Lennie Gallant, Teresa Doyle, Urban Carmichael, Ron Hynes, Russell Daigle, Evans and Dougherty, J.P. Cormier, Tom Lewis, John Ferguson, Sam Moon, Marilyn MacDonald, and a host of others. A highlight of Lee's songwriting career was the late, legendary John Allan Cameron's recording of "The Golden Ribbon," co-written with Newfoundland's songwriting great, Ron Hynes.

Lee has visited the area several times and for the first time, will include Prince Edward Island on his Fall, 2009 musical tour of the Provinces.

Lee plays in churches, concerts, town hall venues, and private home "ceilidh" gatherings in the Maritimes. He welcomes (and encourages!) you to contact him about bookings for his next tour in 2010.
