Hi folks,

have broken free of their moorings and are heading your way.

On Friday, June 2nd at noon in the Courtyard...  the Dory Bungholes will kick off the media launch for the upcoming Tuesday Tunes summer concert series at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.

On Tuesday, June 6th at 7:00... the Dory Bungholes will present the first concert in the Tuesday Tunes series in the Courtyard of the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Water Street, Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The Dory Bungholes are: 
Vince Morash and Jon Stone trading barbs, baritone & bass
Margo Carruthers anchoring the alto with a bit of sass
and tenor... Jay Perry who takes no prisoners on the "high Cs".

You do not want to miss these scurvy dogs before they are run out of town...

WTF Karma

WTF: What the Folk 

Unplugged open mic

Friday, May 26, 2017 

7-9 pm (6:30 seating)

Spencer House

5596 Morris Strett, Halifax

"What goes around... comes around"

One of the most interesting concepts that we all stumble across in our lives sooner or later is that of KARMA. In fact, Karma is such an important teaching tool that it features in many of the world's major religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism and Taoism. 

*Karma essentially means that this happened because that happened. 
In other words... karma is the law of cause and effect. 
Karma can also be neatly defined through Newton's third law: 
every action has an equal or opposite reaction.

Join Guest Host JIM SMITH as we sing songs and tell stories wherein the protagonists get what they give. If they're mean... they get bad karma ~ bad things willhappen. If they're kindly and nice... they get good karma ~ good things willhappen. You might also want to consider songs or stories wherein karma is deserved but has not yet been doled out. And if you are completely stumped... you can always go with songs and stories featuring cars and/or dear old ma.

According to the great philosopher Mick Jagger...

 "You can't always get what you want but... if you try sometimes... you might find you get what you need." 


No need for revenge.

Just sit back & wait. 

Those who hurt you 

will eventually screw up 


& if you are lucky... 

God will let you watch.
