About MKP

Maritime Kitchen Party (MKP) is named after a well-known tradition in Nova Scotia. We know Maritimers love to party and that usually happens in the kitchen! There's always a guitar playing, or someone belting out traditional songs at the top of their lungs. MKP brings that energy to their live performances with foot-stomping Celtic music and  Canadiana. You will hear traditional tunes, Great Big Sea, Stompin' Tom, Blue Rodeo. Tragically Hip and more. Throw in some MKP originals, rock, country etc and the party is "Rarin' to go!"

 

*MKP also performs as a 4-piece as Big City. Big City plays new country, old country, and much more.

MKP has opened for… or played with:

Kim Mitchell, Blue Rodeo, 54/40, Men of the Deeps, Big Sugar (twice), Dave Gunning, Bruce Guthro, James Keelaghan, Rita Chiarelli, Tal Bachman, Prism, Great Big Sea, Econoline Crush, The Sheepdogs (twice) and many more.

With a collective 90+ years in the business, MKP's members are:


  • Steve Smith - Lead vocals, guitar, harmonica
    Shannon Sternloff (O'Neill) - Electric lead 5-string bass, harmony vocals
