Dal Segno Trio: West of the Danube

Review by Ivy Wigmore

On Sunday, July 16th, St. Mary's Church featured the Dal Segno Trio's concert featuring the music of eastern European composers, "West of the Danube," as part of the ongoing Indian River Festival. The evening marked the trio's fourth appearance at the festival. Only fitting, really, since dal segno (Italian for the sign) instructs the

A Most Amazing Thing

A Most Amazing Thing
Erskine Smith

by Jane Ledwell

If my interview with Erskine Smith were a film, it would open with a long, well-blocked tracking shot: all forward motion, deft obstacle-avoidance, and good lines shot off on escalators. High- energy as he is, he's probably easiest to follow when shot from above with a movie camera. Shots would mostly track him to Victoria, where he and his wife, Pat, are

It's an international line-up for this year's PEI Bluegrass and Old Time Music Festival in Rollo Bay

by Charlie Hansen

The time of year has come for all good bluegrass fans to take to the road in search of their favourite summer festival. The folks on P.E.I. are no exception. This time every year the fever strikes in a big way and tent cities spring up like mushrooms all over the country.


Expanding Creative Horizons

Expanding Creative Horizons
Debra James Percival

by Jane Ledwell

The week before Easter, I met Debra James Percival at her Charlottetown home. Upstairs, creativity was springing out of her living room in the form of her children's Easter tree-an explosion of beribboned branches, natural buds opening in the indoor warmth, hung with her pick of forty dozen eggs hollowed, dyed, and painted by her children from the

A Sound Room with a View

Gordon and Charlene Belsher operate Guernsey Cove Parlour Productions from their home by the shore
It was three years ago that I was last at Gordon and Charlene Belsher's home and recording studio in Guernsey Cove. At the time, they were putting a wrap around verandah on their house to take advantage of the beautiful view of the Northumberland Straight. It was there that I had one of

Life Sucks, Then You Die


Review by Sean McQuaid

Woyzeck was a funny thing for the UPEI Theatre Society to tackle as its latest major production. Funny as in odd, not funny as in ha-ha (there's not much to laugh at in Woyzeck, though there are a few black chuckles to be found). It's a somewhat unsatisfying play-short and none too sweet, an unfinished meditation on man's inhumanity to man and the resultant erosion

Praise Good Breeding

Gardening Delights
by Nancy Oakes

As the time to make the rounds of garden centres and nurseries begins, I would ask that this year you take note of where the plants come from. I don't mean Ontario or a tissue culture lab in Holland. I mean more who found them, who brought them from the wild, who bred them. As I begin my fifth year of hybridizing Daylilies, I am more aware of just how long it takes

Lighthouse Gallery Fills a Need

by C.J. Veach

Over the winter a number of Prince County artists have had the chance to display their works at the same venue. The Lighthouse Gallery, located at 401 Water Street in Summerside, has been the off-season home for these works which will soon be making the summer gallery circuit. Local artist and retired dentist, Dr. John Robertson, is responsible for the gallery that shares space with
