Meaford Summer Concert Series Features Sean Cotton

The Meaford Summer Concert Series wraps up on Friday, August 24th with a concert featuring Sean Cotton and the Muskoka Connection.  Sean has appeared in Meaford before as a solo one-man-band at The Leeky Canoe.  This time he brings his band with him.

Sean Cotton is a veteran musician who was born into the business, son of country singer Neil Cotton.  For many years he toured with Corin Raymond as a duo called The Undesirables built around original songs with lyrics by Raymond and music by Cotton.  After a decade touring as a sideman he relocated to Muskoka to put more emphasis on family time, but he didn’t give up music.  His interest in playing with others led to an involvement in the local scene that evolved into a collective called Tree Ring Records with a mission to promote the local music scene in Huntsville and surrounding areas.

He’s bringing many of his musical cohorts to Meaford, billed as The Muskoka Connection.  The full band will allow him to rock out in a way he’s unable to do as a solo.  He describes his music as having a 70’s, from the stylings of greats such as Bill Withers, Van Morrison and Waylon Jennings.

The free concert on Friday starts at 7 p.m. with the Emma Wright band, fresh from the Boots and Hearts festival, as opener.
