The new 2016 edition Downtown Visitors’ Guide is now available from the Downtown Truro Partnership office. Filled with information about area attractions, a listing of downtown retailers and a corresponding map, this handy little guide is a must-have for conferences, reunions and other events with a focus on out of town guests. Contact our office at 902-895-9258.

 


Since it’s inception in 1979, the Downtown Truro Partnership has grown to encompass an expanded mandate and responsibility for an expanded physical area – the Urban Regional Core (URC). Originally named the Truro Development Corporation Limited, the DTP has represented the interests of the downtown business community and has evolved into the driving force behind many of the downtown development and promotional initiatives that take place throughout the year.

A great photo and story from Mingo Music Sales. ... See MoreSee Less

How many stores can count the Prime Minister as a customer? That's right, we used to enjoy waiting on Dutchie Mason, the Prime Minister of the Blues. Dutchie was born on this date in 1938. In ultimate rock & roll irony, his longtime friend and guitar player Wade Brown passed away on this date in 2010. Wade worked and taught guitar at Mingo Music off and on through the '80s and '90s. This picture shows Wade, Garrett Mason, and Myles Goodwyn (April Wine) performing at the Dutch Mason Blues Festival in 2008. For week 6 of our 50 week celebrations, buy a Suzuki Bluesmaster harmonica for $19.67+ tax. Nothing says Blues like a 'Mississippi saxophone'. Have a listen to Dutchie with the late great Rick Jeffery on harp (and another Mingo Music alumni, Phisch Fancy on bass) on "Slo Fried Baloney": youtu.be/EEaV-WlJEow
