Watermark is a proud member of the PTN – Professional Theatre Network of PEI
Since his move to PEI in 2013, Ontario native Nick Doneff has become a staple of the Island music scene. Though he is busy as a sideman for Island favourites, like Nudie and Liam Corcoran, Doneff has recently emerged as an artist in his own right.
His 2016 debut, self-titled album touches on his five-year tenure in Toronto, his adjustment to life in PEI, and a few seldom-sung facts of life as faced by the proverbial Canadian 20-something.
Nick Doneff is at the Victoria Playhouse with Tim Moxan on August 14th.
