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