THE SCENE

Clarence Clemons took the stage in 1994 and helped kick off what would become Canada’s fastest growing celebration of Blues and Roots music. Five thousand people descended on Majors Hill Park that first year, probably not realizing the tradition they were helping to create. In the years since, more than a million people have tuned in their ears and opened their hearts to some of the biggest names in the music industry.
