“Jessica Pearson & The East Wind played during a dinner service one beautiful evening in the summer. They were wonderful to work with- flexible with the setup and dates and so gracious. Their music suited Nova Scotia perfectly and it made our guests feel right at home!”
~ Kori Lightfoot, Lightfoot and Wolfville Vineyard, Nova Scotia
‘Jessica Pearson and the East Wind were the sort of act that completely reinvigorates you as a promoter, and reminds you why you do the job. Absolute dreams to work with, and such a joy to watch that I was plotting when I could get them back to play again before they'd even finished their set.’
~ Stephen Rotzsch Thomas, Folk Room UK
