Sean Cotton Returns This Week To The Leeky

Sean Cotton

Muskoka’s Sean Cotton is returning this week to The Leeky Canoe, Thursday Jan. 12th.  If you caught him last October this is a chance to catch up with him again.

In Muskoka, Sean Cotton is a driving force, working with local artists as a record producer, radio host, arts community developer and, of course, singer-songwriter.  Although he has spent years on the road and can perform a wide variety of classic songs touching on blues, folk, jazz and soul, he also tells stories of life in Muskoka through his original songs.  He is regularly an artist-in-residence at The Eaglewood Folk Festival.

Concerned about cultivating more of a local music scene in Muskoka, he and some musical friends formed Tree Ring Records, which is more of a cooperative than a company with the goal of musicians helping each other, specifically to improve the opportunities for original music.

Sean often uses his guitar case with an attached cymbal as a percussion instrument, playing it with his feet as he strums and sings.

We have some cultural similarities to Muskoka, the other “cottage country”, an area that gets as much or more snow than we do in the winter.  Sean’s visit to The Leeky is almost like a diplomatic visit from another Ontario small town music scene.  It will be good to hear his stories and his songs.

Here’s a kind of jazzy blues called “Same Old Story”.  Some interesting details to this story:
