Difference Drummer

Pick a month and play a game: How many listings in The Buzz include drummer Alan Dowling? “In the course of a year, I play with at least a dozen totally different groups,” he says. It’s a steady, hectic rhythm: “In a one-month period, I might do country, rock, jazz, blues, and drumline (marching drums). That might be a typical month.”

Many Facets
Profile by Jane Ledwell

In Ontario, what was one in a million here is one of a kind,” says Laura Cole of her chosen Island home, where she settled almost ten years ago first in Pinette and then in Charlottetown to pursue her passion for craft and creation.

Martin, Derek

Night Watchman
Profile by Jane Ledwell

I’ve had a lot of different jobs, and most of them feed into my work here in the cinema,” says City Cinema owner Derek Martin. “I’ve been a stage manager for theatre, and I know about making sure a show is running on time, managing a crowd.

Thoroughly Island
Profile by Jane Ledwell

Visiting from Toronto, writer and singer-songwriter Nancy White calls herself a “lapsed Maritimer.” Nationally-known for wry wit in songs and musical political commentary, she adds self-deprecatingly, “You have to invent some phrases for yourself or else people will do it to you.”

Strength of Line
Profile by Jane Ledwell

There’s a real strength in line you don’t get with a lot of other arts,” says master woodworker Diane Gaudreau of her craft. Her strong and graceful design has led to pieces selected for the Cheoungju International Biennale in South Korea and the 2010 Cultural Olympiad—and for commissions such as the Northern Lights Award.

Stinson, Hank

A Normal Life
Profile by Jane Ledwell

A small-town boy from a British Columbia pulp-and-paper town, Hank Stinson has been active as an actor and in the theatre since 1969. And yet, in an introspective conversation, he insists he has had “two careers.”
