I Just Wanna Bang on de Drum All Day
Profile: Chris Bertin

by Leslie E. Sprague

I think anybody can do it. You just have to have a drum that's your own and spend time with it, you form a relationship with the drum," says twenty-four year old Chris Bertin of Summerside of his passion for Hand Drums and drum-making. "It's kind of like it's a trinity. There's the wood and then there's the skin. So, it's the tree and then it's the

Chairman of the Board
Profile: Scott Purdy

by Derek Martin

Scott Purdy's name is one that you'll see if you stay for the credits at the movies, As a re-recording mixer, he's one of the last people to work on a film before it gets printed and handed over to the theatre. He's just received his second Genie nomination, for his work on Lilies (the first was for Johnny Mnemonic). I had called him last winter for some sound

Melanie Chaisson & Paul MacDonald

One More…
Profile: Wade Lynch

by Sean McQuaid

After several successful seasons, A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline has become almost as much a part of the summer theatrical landscape as Anne of Green Gables. This will be its last season, though-and few will be sadder to see it end than comedian Wade Lynch, who has played opposite Marlane O'Brien's Patsy Cline throughout the run.

"It changed my life," Lynch

Gaea Inspires the Artist

Profile: Ambika Gail Rutherford

by Sean McQuaid

The hills are alive-as are the plains, the valleys, the seas, the skies and all things that issue from them. At least, that's what Ambika Gail Rutherford's art seems to tell us. Her paintings and prints celebrate life and landscape, often through goddesses and spirits who embody various aspects of the natural world.

Musician's Progress

Profile: Chris Corrigan

by Beth Johnston

A tape recorder and a guitar are two things Chris Corrigan has never been without. The soft-spoken Island musician has been listening to, playing and recording music for as long as he can remember.

"My earliest memory was the hype the Beatles created," he says. "My Dad played the guitar and I just got into it."

Corrigan grew up in the Edmonton suburbs with

Life of Brian


Life of Brian

Profile: Brian Burke

by Sean McQuaid

Brian Burke is a man who has found his niche. While his expressionist paintings hang in far-flung locations ranging from New York to San Francisco, the artist himself is comfortable hanging out in downtown Charlottetown-whenever he's not painting at his country home, that is. For Burke, the quiet life is picture-perfect.

An Islander by birth, Burke was always
