When Andrea Ellis was a child, she didn’t tell her parents she wanted to be a firefighter or an astronaut. She said, “I want to work in concerts.”

She laughs, “I guess as a child I was always keen on music, and I was interested in concerts… The whole experience intrigued me, but I’m not sure what I imagined was entailed!” Whatever it entailed, the accomplished and foc

Film-maker Harmony Wagner thought filming Victoria Park crows would be the easiest part of her short film, Queen of the Crows. “They’re so abundant down there, I didn’t think it would be a problem,” she says. But when the time came for writer/director Harmony and her partner, producer Jason Rogerson, to weave them into the narrative of a story about an Island family

Charlottetown has got the blues on Saturday afternoons. It has for a while and is likely to continue, as long as the “Got Blues” collective of blues musicians keeps hosting winter Saturday afternoon jams with special guests at The Globe on Victoria Row (and at The Factory while The Globe is under renos). If you can say there’s a “blues scene” on PEI, musician Chris Rou

Pick a month and play a game: How many listings in The Buzz include drummer Alan Dowling? “In the course of a year, I play with at least a dozen totally different groups,” he says. It’s a steady, hectic rhythm: “In a one-month period, I might do country, rock, jazz, blues, and drumline (marching drums). That might be a typical month.”

Alan loves variety. “I love t

Alice in Wonderland

Review by Jane Ledwell

Beach-goers who want an evening to relax at the theatre have tremendous options this summer, and several of the options are even close by the ocean. The Montgomery Theatre in North Rustico, newly renamed the Watermark, continues to set high-tide marks on Prince Edward Island’s theatrical sand. Their production of Alice in Wonderland is another example of t
