Music of Nova Scotia, not just traditional music[edit]

I had no intention of spending 4 hours editing the Music In Canada catagory yesterday but I did. Here is why:

1 - Newfoundland has never been considered a Maritime Province. Not ever.

2 - the catagory Music of Canada has popular and other ethnic music references, so should Nova Scotia's.

3 - Nova Scotia was NOT settled in the early phase by celts.

The popular music part of this needs to be greatly expanded. Anne Murray, Hank Snow, for example. Bigger than any celtic trad band, and as important.

I will work away on this over the next while, as well as contribute to editing the hip hop and popular music threads. I also want to create a sub-section on African Nova Scotian music, starting with Portia White singing opera in the early 1900s and linking it to today, with Four the Moment, Linda Carvery, and all. 16:35, 9 August 2005 WayeMason

Current Musical Talent[edit]

I removed this: Throughout all of the decades music has been so vital to the essential developement of young Nova Scotian musicians. Most notably, the band "The unnamed" features Jonathan Kaiser (guitar), Jamie Stewart (bass), and Matt Stride (drums). The band started in 2002, when long-time friends (Jonathan and Jamie) decided to endeavor into their musical potential. With the joining of the drummer (Matt Stride) they came together and birthed a new genre of music. They compiled funk, jazz, blues and rock into a new style of music called blurockazzunk. These youngsters have realised that they are at a prime age to begin their musical career. They have become one of the most recognizable bands found within Nova Scotia. They currently have one self-titled album complete. They are nominated for an "ECMA" (East coast music award) for "Best new artist". They are the current forefront of the music industry in Nova Scotia and have a bright and promising future. They are working in the studio on their second album entitled "The beauty of the glorious sunshine". They are anticipating a successful tour promoting the new album. They have already toured across North America, Europe, Austrailia, Antarctica, Japan and the Northern Tundra of Russia with the release of their previous album.

The unnamed were nominated in 2005 for a MMVA (Much music video award). They lost in their category to rapper 50 Cent..

This should be in the band's own article, if they meet notability guidelines. I don't think it belongs here. Strobilus 03:03, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

If any of it is remotely true, would be the other thing you need to worry about here... (hint, it isn't) WayeMason 01:38, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

hip hop[edit]

I live in Halifax. There is no hip-hop scene there, other then in the ghetto's, and even there it's just kids rapping to their own beats. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:11, 1 February 2008 (UTC) Tell that to Jordan Croucher, you racist hick.
