Mr. Go-getter
Profile by Jane Ledwell

No reclining armchair or closed-in desk in Melvin Ford’s office—no time to sit. The manager of the King’s Playhouse is busy and plans to be even busier building up the repertoire and reputation of what he calls “the busiest theatre on PEI.” He says, “It feels like [summer] doesn’t end. We have 14 shows before Christmas. We’ve had 64 different live productions

Staying Busy
Profile by Jane Ledwell

This summer, if you pulled up to a drive-thru to buy a burger, you could expect to be asked, “Want fries with that?” If you pull in to a concert to hear a favourite fiddler or band, expect to be asked, “Want Jon Matthews with that?” The busy musician, producer, and Magic 93.1 broadcaster has only had six nights off since mid-June. “It’s one of those cases that

The Music Within

Real Live Experience

April usually finds René Hurtubise and his love in Spain, where they exercise a Spanish vocabulary based on food and directions. This April, though, the educator, singer, and classical music volunteer will travel instead to Buenos Aires—thanks to a friend’s invitation, a dip in ticket price, and intrigue about Eva and Juan Peròn.

Last spring, after an inspiring PEI Talent Week showcasing Island fashion, and after another winter of great new local music, Savannah Belsher’s friend Christina Gaudet uploaded the first and last pages of a comic she had created to Facebook, “That was it,” Savannah says. “I wanted to read everything in it.” All she needed was a place to publish those elusive

McGarry, Janet

Daughter of Bluegrass
