On the Road with Dutch Mason

The real deal

Review by Doug Gallant 

In 2003 I traveled to Halifax to see Dutch Mason play.

I’d seen him play many times, had several of his records and felt he knew the blues better than almost anyone I had ever heard.

So I was shocked when he came on stage in a wheelchair.

He could no longer play guitar, couldn’t even hold a microphone. Chronic arthritis had taken a heavy toll on the man

Profile: Brielle Ansems

by Jane Ledwell

When Brielle Ansems plays the role of Josie Hogan in A Moon for the Misbegotten at the Watermark Theatre in North Rustico this summer, she wants audiences to see into “the performances we put on for each other every day.” She reflects, “Others don’t always see our selves in ways we see ourselves... Unfortunately, our opinions of ourselves are often lower.”

The Nature of PEI

by Gary Schneider

I enjoy seeing nature close up and feeling that I am a part of my surroundings. It is not humans watching nature, but humans as part of the natural world. I admit to being more comfortable walking a forest path than shopping in a mall, but I do recognize that both are components of this modern world.

This past May, I could walk from my house in Tea Hill to the

The Brew

by Bryan Carver

Tucked in the rolling hills of central PEI, in the small community of Rose Valley, sits a rather innocuous barn that holds one of the best beer destinations in Atlantic Canada.

Founded by the father and son team of Hughie and Don Campbell, Barnone Brewery has been turning out some beloved ales since its inception in 2012. The Campbells saw an opportunity; use a portion of

The Shed Sessions
Talking Bands

by Evan James Ceretti

A shed in Oakar Myint’s backyard has been revamped into a tiny music venue, which is now the home of the Shed Sessions PEI studio. It’s probably the smallest venue in town where you can experience the wide-reaching sounds of Island musicians.

The idea was conjured up by Vinod Ramachandra while he was watching NPR’s Tiny Desk concerts on Youtube. “This could be a

Meet the Cleavers

Meet the Cleavers
The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

Every year we add manure to our garden and every year we get uninvited wildflowers as part of the package. (“Wildflowers” sounds gentler than “weeds.”) 

This year a healthy crop of Galium aparine, or Cleavers, is springing up. If you have these guests in your yard you need no description from me. Scratchy stems covered with recurved (down-pointing) prickles
