This month I want to talk about a couple of Bluegrass festivals happening on the Island in July.

First of all the PEI Bluegrass and Old Time Music Festival is happening on July 4, 5 and 6 at the festival grounds in Rollo Bay. This year’s festival features Audie Blaylock and Redline from Indiana, Shannon Slaughter and County Clare from Alabama, and Art Stevenson and High W

It’s bluegrass festival time again on PEI and the first festival out of the chute is actually a campout known as the St. Louis Bluegrass Campout. This campout takes place on June 25, 26 and 27 on the grounds of the St. Louis Community Center. Local and regional bands are featured each year and there’s lots of jammin’ and friendly folks. This campout has grown in popularity each

There were lots of things happening in Zephyrhills area this month. First of all we took a trip up to Sunshine Raceway in Richland to watch the trot breds on a pleasant Sunday afternoon. It’s a lot of fun to watch these little horses strut their stuff on a 5/16 mile track. Most of the horses are owned by northerners that relocate to Florida for the winter and bring their “

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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
