Monday, February 4, 2019 at 7:30 PM – 10:30 PM
Al Whittle Theatre, Wolfville, NS
Price: $20.00 plus HST & $2.50 service fee on Ticketpro


In his latest solo project, ICONS OF SOUL, Luke McMaster has taken the Motown and soul influence that has always imbued his music, to a new level. ICONS uniquely marries contemporary songwriting with legendary hit songwriters.

You’ll be treated to brand new music, co-written with iconic Motown songwriters, Felix Cavaliere of the Rascals (Groovin’, Good Lovin’), Lamont Dozier (Stop! In the Name of Love, Baby, I Need Your Lovin’) and more. These tunes are so catchy, you’ll be snapping and singing along like you’ve known them all your life.

You’ll also enjoy fresh covers of some of these writer’s greatest hits along with favourites from Luke’s 20 plus year catalogue including his smash hit ‘Good Morning Beautiful’ (#3 US Billboard AC).
