Four-course dinners with wine pairings are also available, for an additional $112 per person on top of the show’s costs. Even if you’re only interested in the music, the lineup has some great pairings for any music fan’s palette!

More information about the amphitheatre can be found on the Jackson-Triggs website, including an FAQ and list of previous artists for the curious.

Once upon a time, Mat studied journalism. That's how he became Alan's one-time intern and current-time contributor, and the rest is ongoing history - get it? Mat also studied biology and music, so he has a strangely specific knowledge set that doesn't really apply anywhere other than useless fun facts. He currently works for a music tech start-up in Halifax, and is a big fan of the em dash.
