Miller and Ross On Tap

Just booked my first live gig since last summer! Here on Prince Edward Island, they’ve been incredibly effective at keeping Covid at bay (less than 200 total cases and ZERO, count ’em, ZERO Covid deaths). So they can actually book indoor shows here with limited capacity. Amazing. Brooke Miller and I are thrilled that we’ll be playing the Victoria Playhouse in Victoria-by-the-Sea, PEI, Canada on Monday, July 26, 2021! Hope you can make it if you’ll be on the Island this summer. More details as they arise.

First Lady of Song

Remembering a Maritime legend today – Cape Breton’s First Lady of Song, Rita MacNeil. We welcomed Rita to our Harbourfront Theatre stage several times and we will forever be inspired by her music which focused on family, community and living your dreams. She still reminds us that hard work and humility are important virtues, and that real success is staying true to yourself. Watch her live performance of “It’s A Working Man, I Am” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YUw_5IYcD4#RitaMacNeil#HarbourfrontTheatre#OurTheatreYourTheatre#Summerside#WestPrince#PEI#TheArts#25Years#NotForProfit#HarbourfrontIsHere

Celebrating Francophonie Day

Celebrate International Francophonie Day with Jacques Arsenault at The Mack

Confederation Centre of the Arts is proud to present an evening of songs featuring P.E.I.’s own Jacques Arsenault who will be collaborating with well-known multi-instrumentalist Morgan Saulnier. This concert will be presented at The Mack, on March 20, at 7:30 p.m., and is a celebration of International Francophonie Day and part of Rendez-vous de la francophonie.

After living in Alberta and Ontario for many years, Arsenault and his family have recently moved back to their home province of P.E.I. Most of the program will be performed in French but Arsenault has selected a few songs in English.  

“It will be a great privilege for me to be able to present a concert at The Mack,” he shares. “I have chosen songs that talk mostly about the sea, about travel, and the desire to travel. Given that the concert will take place on the first day of spring, I have also chosen a few songs to celebrate the arrival of the season.”

Concert tickets can be purchased via the Confederation Centre box officeat confederationcentre.com or by phone at 902.566.1267.

The Centre is thankful to the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Government of P.E.I., and the City of Charlottetown for their ongoing support. The Centre also acknowledges the support of Fédération culturelle de l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard for this concert.

A Bit of Soulstice

February 18th & March 4 – 7:30pm – $25

Winter SOULstice, presented by The Guild, features a very talented cast orchestrated by Music Director, Lisa MacDougall.

Lisa has played piano since the age of 3 and has been so fortunate and blessed to be a touring and recording artist, musician, musical theatre director and teacher in the music business for over 25 years! Through her musical journey touring the world in rock and rhythm and blues bands, this Halifax native became passionate about soul music.

MacDougall originally created the Lisa Mac and the Sexy Ida’s in 2012 in Halifax. Now that she’s on the Island, she thought it would be the perfect time to do a PEI version!

Joining MacDougall are Brieonna Locche, Nadine Haddad and Noah Malcolm. All three musicians have worked professionally in the music industry for quite some time, and are very excited to be harmonizing with Lisa again!

MacDougall promises “great songs, with great arrangements, very much lending themselves to strong, gospel rhythm and blues vocal performances.” SOULstice will feature songs by Aretha Franklin, Dianna Ross, and more!

Tickets for SOULstice can be purchased at The Guild Box Office (111 Queen Street) or by calling (902)620-3333.
