We are SouthWind, a country/gospel/bluegrass group with experience at variety shows and exhibitions throughout Nova Scotia. We provide fast paced, up beat, up-tempo shows, which our audiences enjoy. Our music appeals especially to the over 50 set, although younger people enjoy the close harmonies and enthusiastic presentations of our performances.

Our group consists of Dianne Tipert from Oak Hill in the Bridgewater area, (autoharp, lead vocals and harmony), Florence Morton from Liverpool (rhythm guitar, lead vocals and harmony), Reg Coolen from Mersy Point in the Liverpool area (fiddle, mandolin, and harmony) and Gary Nowe from Milton in the Liverpool area (vocals and standup bass). Individually, these musicians have been performing on stage for many years.

Our diverse backgrounds and various experiences with other music groups have produced a unique sound that adapts itself to almost any venue. All audiences appreciate our close harmony gospel music.

Our instrumentation is acoustic except for the autoharp, which needs a slight boost to bring its sound level to where it blends properly with the rest of the instruments. We have three lead singers who are all songwriters. This gives us the opportunity to tailor our music to produce that sound which is uniquely SouthWind. We produce our music by gathering around a condenser microphone, and so can duplicate the sound from our cds on stage.

Although we are a four-member band, we actually have five instruments. Reg switches from fiddle to mandolin as the music requires.

We have released three CDs (If Only, That Beautiful Shore and Reg's Christmas), and are currently nominated for two Nova Scotia Music Week Awards (Country/Bluegrass and Inspirational Recording of the Year).
