Jon Cornwall

Affable host and sound tech par excellence, Jon Cornwall is one of the main reasons performers from all over the world want to play the Carleton Music Bar & Grill.

Perhaps Jon's affinity for artists comes from the fact that he's a musician himself. Growing up he studied piano (Royal Conservatory) and as a teenager picked up the guitar and started writing tunes. He's performed his mellow, insightful, lyrical songs all over the Maritimes solo, duo, and full band, including opening for such greats as Ron Sexsmith, Steve Poltz, Dave Gunning, and more. He's produced/engineered for countless others including Sean McCann, Gordie Sampson, Willie Nile, and The Northern Pikes. Jon also recorded David Myles' award winning 'Live at the Carleton' album.

Jon is an outstanding artist in his own right, as you'll discover when you catch his set at The Carleton opening for Dave Sampson.
