The Breezeway Second Stage

The Breezeway

“The Breezeway” started out as a good time sharing music with friends in a Breezeway.

Since 2015, The Breezeway Live has grown to include our own studio space where we host live and online Shows every Tuesday Evening at 6:45pm Est.

Due to the pandemic, the Breezeway team felt that artists should still have an opportunity to perform for their fans. “The Breezeway Lockdown” series was then created to give musicians that space. The Breezeway Lockdown streams on Thursday Evenings at 7:00pm Est. featuring performances chosen from the show’s followers.

The Breeze Way Event

The Breezeway Live

“No doubt about it, you are guaranteed to see some amazing entertainment from household names, local favorites and upcoming entertainers.

How it started

It started out just having a good time with friends, now I couldn’t see us not doing this every Tuesday in The Breezeway and Beyond,” Says Breezeway Founder & Co Host Stephen Francis.


In 2020 The Breezeway was Awarded a Port Hope Civic Award for their work within the local community. A true testimony to their exceptional care for their community.

    Harold MacIntyre

    Harold MacIntyre is a Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia, and raised in nearby Sugarcamp. He started singing and playing guitar as a boy at family gatherings. He moved to Toronto in 1967 to pursue his dream of playing and recording music.

    Harold MacIntyre would go on to record albums on the Kodiak, Condor, Burco, Diamond and Audiograph labels, charting numerous hit singles on Canadian charts, including his signature song “Before She Made Me Crawl”, one of Larry Coad’s classic compositions, which ironically did not make it to Canadian hit charts.

    However, MacIntyre did find chart success (1981-1984) with the singles “The Newfie Shiek”, “Heaven’s Almost As Big As Texas”, “Too Much Woman”, “Honky Tonk Fever”, “That Don’t Mean I Love You Less”, “Till The Day I’m Gone”, “Roads And Other Reasons” and the Top 10 hit “Pressures Of Progress”.

    • In 1981 he was acclaimed Big Country’s New Artist of the Year.
    • In 1984 he was Country Music News Male Vocalist.
    • From 1981-1984 Harold was nominated for 4 Juno Awards.
      During his career Harold has played with many country greats including George Jones, Waylon Jennings, Conway Twitty, Carroll Baker, Johnny Burke and of course Paul Weber.

    Marie Bottrell has been writing songs and singing since her pre-teen years. After performing in her family group (Whitestone Bridge) and singing at dances and Legion Halls in her hometown of London, Ontario, Marie was signed to The Mercey Brothers’ MBS Records label in 1978. She pursued a solo career, releasing two albums on MBS and an additional three albums after being signed to RCA Records.

    During the early 1980s, Marie Bottrell (backed by her band Cottonwood) toured extensively across Canada, as a headline attraction and opening major concert shows for such stars as Marty Robbins, Tammy Wynette, Charlie Daniels, Tom T. Hall, Lee Greenwood, Marie Bottrell earned numerous JUNO and Big Country award nominations, winning RPM’s Big Country award in 1983 for Female Vocalist of the Year. She was named the Canadian Country Music Association’s Female Vocalist Of The Year in 1983 and 1984, as well as being the inaugural winner of the Female Vocalist Of Year in the 1983 Country Music News Fan Awards, an honour repeated in 1984.
