Halfway Home Tour:
Matt Andersen & The Mellotones
with special guest Bobby Bazini

Matt Andersen’s Halfway Home by Morning will make you dance uncontrollably, weep unashamedly, and fill up any dark spots in your soul with a blast of sonic light. Nearly two decades into his career, still armed with his signature room-shaking, heart-quaking voice, Matt Andersen can’t fail. Halfway Home by Morning is the sound of an artist doing what he was born to do—laying his soul bare using the music that can’t help but run through him. And doing it with more jubilation than he ever has before.

About Matt Andersen

A powerhouse performer with a giant, soul-filled voice and commanding stage presence, Matt Andersen has built a formidable following world-wide.

TRIBUTE TO STOMPIN’ TOM CONNORS – CHAD MATTHEWS
With special guest Katie McGarry

Sponsored by:
Trout River Industries
Mill River Resort | Alberton Fisheries Limited | Our Family Tradition Restaurant | Rooney Funeral Home

This tribute to Canadian icon, the late Stompin’ Tom Connors, is second to none, paying homage to one of Canada’s most beloved folk heroes.

Headlining the show will be Island singer/actor Chad Matthews, who portrays Stompin’ Tom at a dinner theatre in Skinners Pond PEI at the Stompin’ Tom Centre and who recently performed in Toronto with renowned tenor John McDermott.

Joining Chad for this special night of Stompin’ Tom songs, stories and laughs, is his band comprised of well-known Island musicians including fiddle sensation/singer/songwriter/step dancer Keelin Wedge, along with guitar extraordinaire Daniel Drouin fresh off his Music PEI award win and recently chosen for the 2018 Canadian Songwriter’s Challenge. On drums will be seasoned singer Rodney Arsenault, whose 35+ years in the business have seen him on stage with the legendary Eddie Eastman, with Catherine MacLellan in her show “If It’s Alright With You” honouring her late father Gene MacLellan, and many others. Last but certainly not least, on bass guitar, another veteran of the local music scene, singer Wade Carragher.

Also sharing the stage that night will be up and coming singer/songwriter from Charlottetown, Katie McGarry.  She has a country / Americana feel to her music, and a timeless voice. Her latest album “Waiting On” received four 2015 Music PEI Award nominations including Songwriter of the Year. She took home the award for Country Recording of the Year.

So much Prince Edward Island talent on the same stage for this memorable one night only event! Don’t miss out!

Going Strong Shanneyganock

SATURDAY, JUNE 1ST, 7:30 PM at the Harbourfront Theatre
ALL SEATS: $32.00 tax & fees included

Shanneyganock_600x600-OPT

Well-known for their authentic brand of true Newfoundland folk, Shanneyganock has delighted audiences from coast to coast to coast.

From performing at the North Pole for Canadian military to performing on Broadway for the opening party of COME FROM AWAY (whose score was incidentally inspired by Shanneyganock), the Newfoundland band has made festivals, theatres and clubs across North America their stomping ground for the last 25 years.

Featuring button accordion, guitar, hearty baritone vocals, and a rhythm section, the band has continued to grow its legion of fans by relentless touring, anthemic songs, and a highly energetic live show.

To celebrate this milestone, you’re invited to join them as they open the Shanneyganock songbook, and experience a rollicking wave of Newfoundland history through some of its greatest storied ambassadors, who are still in fine voice after a quarter of a century.

Keying Into Kobo Town

FRIDAY, MAY 3RD, 7:30 PM at the Harbourfront Theatre
All Seats: Pay-What-You-Will

OPTKoboTown_600x600

Kobo Town:
Special Event – Pay What You Will
Presented by Confederation Centre of the Arts & Harbourfront Theatre

You may book a ticket for this performance, at no charge. When you attend the performance, we’ll provide you with an envelope, and will ask you to pay whatever amount you wish (based on your own individual experience) following the show, using cash, credit card or cheque. Ultimately, YOU decide the price of your tickets!

Founded and fronted by émigré Trinidadian songwriter Drew Gonsalves, Kobo Town’s music has been variously described as “an intoxicating blend of lilting calypsonian wit, dancehall reggae and trombone heavy brass” (Guardian) and a “unique, transnational composite of rhythm, poetry and activist journalism.” (Exclaim!)

From their home in Toronto, the JUNO Award winning group has brought their distinct calypso-inspired sound to audiences across the world, from Port-of-Spain to Paris and from Montreal to Malaysia. At once brooding and joyous, intensely poetic and highly danceable, Gonsalves’ songs betray deep roots in Caribbean folk music, while the band delivers them with an indomitable energy that has earned them a considerable following far beyond the niche of world music enthusiasts and calypso fans.

On his new release, Where the Galleon Sank (2017), Gonsalves continues to explore 500 years of history through his post-colonial, Trinidadian lens, armed with his trademark wit and gift for melody. Maverick producer Ivan Duran is once again manning the console, creating a warm, percolating, richly layered sound. As on Kobo Town’s two previous outings, “Galleon” is filled with buoyant music that stimulates both body and mind; propulsive, infectious grooves are juxtaposed with incisive lyrics that expose human folly and our tendency to repeat our mistakes.

Part poet, part correspondent, Gonsalves delivers compelling dispatches from events both real and imaginary.

Lineup:
Drew Gonsalves: lead vocal, guitar, cuatro
Robert Milicevic: drum kit
Don Stewart: bass
Terence Woode: trombone
Jan Morgan: trumpet
Francesco Emmanuel: guitar
