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.

Songs of Protest

Next Watermark Music Series Concert Announced

The Watermark Music Series next live streamed concert of the summer will be held this Sunday August 23rd at 7:30PM, on our Facebook page.

Songs of Protest from the repertoires of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young; Marvin Gaye; Bruce Cockburn; Bob Marley and many more. Performed by Catherine MacLellan, Scott Parsons, Rob Oakie, Nick Gauthier, and Dave Wigmore.

Songs of protest have always been a part of mankind’s development. Used for speaking out against oppression, unjust laws, and inequality, they give a voice to those who are socially, economically and politically challenged. Songs about social justice are particularly important today as we battle to eliminate racism and fight for equality in our society.

The show features one of PEI (and Canada’s) greatest voice and songwriter in the folk world, Catherine MacLellan. She will be supported by Scott Parsons, an icon in PEI’s music history and a founder of the Black Cultural Society of PEI. The special guest for the evening will be Rob Oakie with Nick Gauthier and Dave Wigmore. You’ll hear some classics and some songs you may not recognize from the repertoires of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Marvin Gaye, Bruce Cockburn, Bob Marley and many more.

These free concerts, curated as always by Rob Oakie, can be viewed in the comfort of your homes by going to our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Watermark-Theatre-93969977499
