About Us

        John Lindsay-Botten, founder and director of The East Coast Carolling Co., has been putting together professional carolling quartets for over eight years, bringing the sounds of Christmas and other holidays repeatedly to places like Spring Garden Road, Dartmouth Crossing,  Downtown Dartmouth, Halifax’ Holiday Parade of Lights, Sunnyside Mall in Bedford, and at The Halifax Club. This doesn’t even mention single-performance engagements for companies such as Scotian Homes in Enfield, Intact Insurance, Farnell Packaging, the Nova Scotia Department of Health, and Mac Interior Designs, just to name a few.  While singing at a number of weddings and Valentine-themed performances, and other occasions, the Christmas season is their busiest time of the year, bar none…but that doesn’t mean they’re too busy to include your special engagements.

For more information, please contact us.
