Keeping the Beat
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Whether you realize it or not, chances are good that you have heard drummer and percussionist Alan Dowling play this week. Almost 46,000 Islanders hear Alan's drumset on any given weeknight in the new theme music for CBC's Compass. From being an eager Island kid who used to follow parade drummers down the street, Alan has developed into one of the Island's

And the Band Plays On

Profile by Jane Ledwell

Under an enormous wooden stereo-a 1959 model as big as a sideboard-Gerry Rutten stashes an equally enormous scrapbook of newspaper clippings recalling his decades teaching music. The clippings culminate with tributes, honours, and awards from 1994, the year he retired from teaching at Englewood School. In that year, the Englewood band received not

Making Time
Profile by Jane Ledwell

I'll tell you more about that in just a minute," artist Hilda Woolnough said more than once as I interviewed her at her Breadalbane home. In her recent art, she seems driven to make the best possible use of time-as a theme and as a construct.

Hilda has just returned from a stay at St. Michael's Printshop in St. John's, Newfoundland, an honour offered to just

The Secret Life of Pottery
Profile by Jane Ledwell

From her workshop on the Gairloch Road, near Belfast, potter Hedwig Koleszar tells the story of a Torontonian friend who visited an aunt in New Zealand and was surprised to stumble across a lamp Hedwig had sold to her aunt without ever knowing the connection with her friend. Often, Hedwig hears stories about her pottery. "People are very

Somebody's Gotta Do It
Profile by Treva McNally

A wonderful summer for an Island entertainer would be one where you could make music, and not have to go far from home to do it. Margie Carmichael is having that kind of summer. She books the entertainment and sings at the Trailside Cafe, sings with Steve Sharratt or Roy Johnstone at several events, appears in Hold the Haggis at Orwell Corner every

Adventures in Ambiguity
Profile by Sean McQuaid

Erica Rutherford's latest paintings have been collected in a new solo exhibition at the Confederation Centre of the Arts, representing the past three years of the artist's output.

Living Around the Canvas

Profile by Sean McQuaid

Prince Edward Island painter Daphne Irving laughingly admits that she is "from away, or from across." She was born in New Jersey, but her parents came from Nova Scotia, where the family spent many summers. She and her husband Ron Irving, the recently retired artistic director of TheatrePEI, came to the Island in 1963 after getting married-and for

Call Me Cartoonist
Profile by Lesley E. Sprague

Peter Murphy gets noticed. At well over six feet and 250 pounds it's not hard to make his presence known on Prince Edward Island but, it's not an easy task if you are a cartoonist who is trying to catch the eye of major publishers. He's here to say that it is possible to both live where you want to live and do what you want to do.

Murphy says, "I
