Evans & Doherty have entertained audiences from Waterford, Ireland to New Waterford, Cape Breton, from Berlin to Boston and from Nova Scotia to New Zealand. They are first rate musicians, singers, songwriters, promoters and producers. Welcome to their site.
Kevin Evans & Brian Doherty have been an integral part of the East Coast music scene for over thirty years. They have been together as Evans & Doherty for more than 26 years. To capture the essence of an Evans & Doherty performance, take a lively blend of traditional, original and contemporary songs, add a liberal sprinkling of stories and humour, then sit back and enjoy these fine entertainers.
As well as performing front and center on stage, Evans & Doherty are involved with many aspects of the music industry. Brian owns and operates Eastern Entertainment Agency, a booking agency and production company which co-ordinates tours of Atlantic Canada for many Canadian and international acts. Kevin owns and operates Modtrad Music, a publishing company, through which much of the material performed by Evans & Doherty is published and licensed.
... Evans & Doherty are an accomplished musical duo. They can start toes tapping with a rousing drinking song or bring a tear to the eye with a lament on the futility of war.
- Anne Ingram, The Daily Gleaner
... It seems to me that every time I have heard Brian Doherty and Kevin Evans live on stage or on tape and now CD over the years I have become more and more convinced they are the greatest folk duo still performing in this world. I am sure that if traditional music fans all over the world could hear them they would agree.
- Gerry Taylor, Telegraph Journal
... they're great fun and they deliver a great sound.
