Carole Bestvater strives to share her joy of music with those around her. She is equally at home in classical and folk genres, maintaining a full schedule as a performer and educator.
Carole relocated from the prairies to St. John’s to attend Memorial University of Newfoundland, and loved it here so much that she decided to stay.
Presented by the Newfoundland & Labrador Folk Arts Society, Folk Night at the Ship is St. John’s oldest continually running event (started in 1974) and regularly draws a sizeable crowd each Wednesday night; sometimes 100 souls and rarely less than 50.
Folk Night starts at 9 p.m. (yes, it really does!) with a one hour set from a featured performer, then a half hour open mic session and closes with a half hour final set from the feature act. Cover charge is $5 and the music ranges from solo songwriters, traditional Newfoundland, blues, klezmer and all styles in between.
