Let’s Eat Here
Let’s Eat Here

Country Prose
by Charlie Hansen

There isn’t a lot of music taking place around here this month so I’ve decided to be a food critic and give you an inside look at some of the eating establishments that we’ve found in this part of Florida. Some are good, some are historic and some are just so so.

Let’s start with the historic. We took a trip across the state a while back to visit some friends and decided t

Some of the Best
Some of the Best

Country Prose
by Charlie Hansen

First let’s address the PEI folks that have been granted showcases at ECMA Week. Not long ago if we had one act showcasing at the ECMAs we were considered to be lucky, but this year we have 23 per cent of the showcasing acts coming from PEI. This is a huge accomplishment for a province that has less than half the population of Halifax. This explosion in the music industry i

Country Prose
by Charlie Hansen

This month I have a bunch of things to talk about, mostly good but maybe some not so good.

First of all we’ve made the trek to the sunny south once again and we’ve had great weather with warm temperatures and sunny skies. Just to make it feel a bit more like Christmas, which isn’t easy when it’s 32 degrees, we took a trip over to the Florida Botanical Gardens to see the Chr

Making the Scene

Country Prose
by Charlie Hansen

This month I have a few thoughts on what makes the PEI music scene so great and what makes the PEI music scene not so great.

First the good news. The Music PEI awards are coming up early in the new year and there is certainly no scarcity of people that should or will be eligible for awards.

The growth of the PEI music industry over the last ten or so years is astounding.

Island Stand-outs
Island Stand-outs
Gordie MacKeeman and Meaghan Blanchard

Country Prose
by Charlie Hansen

As autumn takes a firm grip on PEI I’d like to take some time to talk about two Island-based acts. One is a group of four top-notch musicians and the other is an extremely talented individual artist.

As Hamlet says, “the play’s the thing.” Now I’m no Shakespeare but I subscribe to the philosophy of the show’s the thing.

Both of

October brings us closer to winter and the I see the geese heading south. Other species of birds will be heading south in the not too distant future as well and I intend to be with them, but before I go I’d like to let you know what’s going on in the local music scene.

Neil Matthews has finished his CD, Back in My Country Days, and it’s on the market. This CD is a compilation o

How Was Your Summer?
How Was Your Summer?

Country Prose
by Charlie Hansen

It was a busy summer for music enthusiasts with festivals and the usual run of summer ceilidhs from one end of the island to the other.

Bluegrass festivals were quite successful this year with the St. Louis camp out leading off and again it showed some increases. Although not a large festival it has its faithful fans and does a service to the local community by donating

Keeping it Country
Keeping it Country
by Charlie Hansen

Country Prose

In the beginning there was “The Old Rattler” and his hand-written column that sparked an interest in the country music scene in PEI. Unfortunately, not too long into his journalistic career “The Old Rattler” (Manning Paul Myers), passed away after a long career in country music that spanned many years, many miles, and many bars.

Paul had a drive in him that also lives

Farewell festival
Farewell festival

Country Prose
by Charlie Hansen

Well we finally ended our winter stay in Florida and arrived home to less than friendly weather. I have no idea why we expect better but we always do.

The last musical event that we attended was the Sertoma Youth Ranch spring festival. This festival isn’t their best festival of the year but we were pleasantly surprised by the lineup that they had.

We went up on Friday

Festival Review

Country Prose
by Charlie Hansen

This has been a fairly eventful month for us here in the sunny south. We made a trip up to Palatka to attend their spring festival. We decided that Friday would be the best day so that we could see Seldom Scene and Dry Branch Fire Squad. The Show got under way with The Marksmen at 12:00 noon. They put on a great show with a lot of good gospel music and some comedy that

An Achievement
An Achievement

Country Prose
by Charlie Hansen

First of all, this month, let me begin by saying thank you to some people that made my Lifetime Achievement award at the MusicPEI awards possible. First in line is the board of directors and anyone within the organization that made it possible for me to receive this award. There are, also, many other people over the years that have helped to make this dream come true,

The Hills are Alive

Country Prose
by Charlie Hansen

We took a trip over to the east coast pof Florida to see how the other half lives. Spent a week at the beach on Hutchinson Island. A beautiful place to be but you can only watch the waves roll in and out for so long.

Back in Zephyrhills on Sunday we took a walk down to the local park to find some music. There is lots to see and hear at Zephyrhills on Sunday. The park
