Paul has begun a new project, taking over ownership of the Lunenburg shop called "Comfort & Joy". While he is renovating the store and revamping its offerings, particularly focussing on showcasing Nova Scotia made crafts and art, Paul will not be recording any new shows for the Bluenose Opera House Radio Network. Click "Show Archive" to see the list of existing shows (90 of them).
What are we about?
The BLUENOSE OPERA HOUSE -- inspired by the "Grand Ole Opry", but with the colourfully salty heritage of Atlantic Canada -- in reality is a radio program promoting Maritime culture, heritage and great artistic talent. Featured as guest co-hosts are the most gifted musicians, artists, storytellers, civic leaders, inspiring volunteers; people of all ages with new ideas or who've reinvented their lives to survive and move on.

Heard on The Bluenose Opera House (Show #67) where it got its WORLD PREMIER, "Happy" has now been released on CD Baby (at this link) or iTunes where it can be downloaded for a mere 99 cents. It will soon appear on other audio sources, along with the second of her songs, "Waiting". Your support for Claire will allow her to complete her first EP in our own Otitis Media studio in Lunenburg.
