Lindsay Broughton - The El Mocambo - March 21, 2012 Canadian Music Week

Review and Photos by Dave MacIntyre

My first stop for Canadian Music Fest 2012 was the El Mocambo to catch Lindsay Broughton’s opening set.  The Brooklin, Ontario native is creating quite a stir in the country music world, which is no easy feat considering the growing popularity of the genre and the number of artists trying to make their break onto the scene. 

Broughton performed a brief but memorable set of from-the-heart ballads that highlighted her amazing vocals and the maturity of her songwriting influenced by her life experience, despite the fact she is in only her 20’s.  When you combine these strengths with her natural beauty and magnetic stage presence, you’ve got a sure fire recipe for a star.  Lindsay’s debut self-titled album was released through Maple Music earlier this year, so watch for her to become a household name before long.
