Lennie Gallant is one of Canada’s most beloved songsmiths, a multi-award-winning “class act” (Impact Magazine) who puts on “a powerhouse of a show” (Chronicle Herald). He’s been named the Canadian Folk Artist of the Year, the ECMA’s Entertainer of the Year, and the writer of one of the Top Ten East Coast Songs of All Time.
In March 2020, this 18-time ECMA-winner brought his pitch-perfect mix of folk, rock, Celtic, and country to Symphony Nova Scotia for an exceptional symphonic experience. Hear Lennie’s heartfelt songs combined with full orchestra in this exclusive online premiere.
