Rock and Roles

Canada Rocks!

Review by Joseph Sherman

Canada Rocks! Is a joyful, entertaining mess that doesn’t know whether it is a catalogue of Canadian popular music or an excuse for a weak story line punctuated by songs, many of which qualify as rock to the extent that I qualify as a rock critic. Well, it does know. Fortunately—and I use the terms “joyful” and “entertain” with sincerity—the real star of any

Measha Brueggergosman at Indian River Festival

Review by Ivy Wigmore

On the third of July, The Indian River Festival celebrated its tenth season opening with a concert/lovefest featuring the renowned soprano Measha Brueggergosman.

C’est What?

Chucky Danger Band

Review by Sue Shipley

On a pleasant July evening I experienced a concert at The King’s Playhouse, a gem located in the heart of the small village of Georgetown in Eastern Kings County.

Review by Carol Little

Buchanan goes on to describe storytelling in general as organic, having grown naturally out of the ground, and states that we

Rustic Romance

Lily & Lorne

Review by Carol Little

The romantic musical comedy Lily & Lorne is featured in New Glasgow at the River Theatre, located at the PEI Preserve Company. This original play was written by Kyle MacDougall and is performed by Holly Green and Kyle MacDougall.

Entering the River Theatre, one expects an amateur evening in the rustic, unfinished barn with bare wooden rafters and plastic

Who the Heck?

On July 7th, the all-female group Chiquésa, from the Acadian community of Prince Edward Island, La Région Évangéline, performed their first two-hour show to an enthusiastic crowd at the Jubilee Theatre in Summerside.
