PEI’s Ariel Sharratt and Mathias Kom are the lead duo behind the band The Burning Hell, and have released two albums of folk songs under their own names. Their most recent release Never Work (2020) was a collection of contemporary labour songs about the gig economy, automation, and rebellious digital assistants. With The Burning Hell, Sharratt & Kom have toured extensively internationally and appeared frequently in session on BBC Radio; at festivals such as Glastonbury and Mariposa, and have claimed an unofficial world record for performing ten concerts in ten countries in 24 hours. Their joyful, witty story-songs celebrating underdogs and imagined worlds have earned them a loyal fanbase throughout the world and have been critically praised in The Globe and Mail, Rolling Stone Germany and Uncut. This is their first performance in Eastern PEI.
“He’s our Randy Newman and Cole Porter rolled into one, with one eye on the coming apocalypse and another on the neck of his ukulele.” – The Globe and Mail
“Canada’s The Burning Hell write the kind of literate, funny, catchy songs that make you want to learn all the words and shout them passionately back in their faces.” – Drowned in Sound
Recently nominated for two 2021 Music PEI Awards (New Artist of the Year, Digital Achievement of the Year), Brandon Howard Roy is a queer singer songwriter taking the East Coast music scene by storm.

With an electric stage presence cultivated from a life in the theatre, catchy hooks and relatable lyrics, his debut album called Tough Stuff is making a big splash in the island music scene and beyond.

What a balm for the soul!@theothersarahhagen gave us an hour of blissful, beautiful music, and we are so grateful. Special thanks to Hillcrest United for trusting The Kings Playhouse with your space and helping in our mission to put The Arts at Your Door.
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.
