The Music Hall of Fame recognizes the contributions of east coast musicians and industry movers and shakers who have had an impact on the development and promotion of Canada’s East Coast culture and music.
The Casino Nova Scotia Music Hall of Fame is a destination that showcases and celebrates the musical artistry as well as the legacy of artists and influencers from Atlantic Canada at home and around the world. The Hall of Fame is a lens to understand the region’s history and culture through music in a fun and engaging manner.
The Casino Nova Scotia Music Hall of Fame will have locations in Halifax (opening 2015) and Sydney (2016). The Music Hall of Fame will recognize and celebrate the contributions of Atlantic Canadian artists and industry leaders who have made a significant impact on the export of our east coast culture around the world. Atlantic Canada is widely understood through its music, which reflects the history and experience of the people who have lived here over the years.
