Sensual Music

Between Sun and Snow
PEI Symphony Orchestra

Review by Ivy Wigmore

Between Sun and Snow, the third of the PEI Symphony Orchestra’s performances this season, offered an unusually spicy mixture, thoughtfully blended up to combat those long-winter blues, reassuring us that there’s warmth in our future. Perhaps even some heat.

First on the program was the world premiere of Antoine Ouellette’s

What Recession?

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

On my regular Saturday morning trip to the grocery store a few weeks back I ran into Gordon Bailey. Gordon is one of the Island’s most popular chefs, and his restaurant, Lot 30 in Charlottetown, has developed quite a name for itself in less than a year of operation.

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

It’s TV and film awards season—the time of the year we get to lie on the couch and marvel at amazing clothes and incredible accomplishments of others. But Cheryl Wagner would like people to know that all the gold isn’t in Hollywood and that PEI has it’s share of the prizes, too.

PEI Music Awards

by Jaclyn Killins

Janet McGarry was drawn to singing bluegrass music by the sense of family in the songs and among the players, but now it’s official: she is a “daughter of bluegrass,” the first international artist featured on award-winning Daughters of Bluegrass compilations that highlight the voices of many of the best female bluegrass singers on the circuit.

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

This year marked my second trip to a Charlottetown New Years event unsurpassed for its class, its attendance and its food. The event sees the highest number of impeccably dressed people in one room, at one time, of any annual event in the province. Hundreds and hundreds of people, from all walks of life, make the trip every year. And the food, the marvelous and

The Sway of Otherwise

The Sway of Otherwise
David Helwig

Oberon Press has published a new book of poetry by David Helwig entitled The Sway of Otherwise. The poems evoke the vivid realities of the cycle of the seasons and of life. The title is taken from a poem about walking sandbars on a brilliant summer day.

In 2008, David Helwig won a Matt Cohen Award for a lifetime of achievement in poetry and prose. He had already won both the Atlantic

A Heart for History

A Heart for History
Profile: Diane Barnes

by Jane Ledwell

Walk into School Street House, the guest home that writer and historical sleuth Diane Barnes runs with her husband Tom, and be transported back in time by furniture, organs, radios, and decor that could have furnished the home of a beloved great aunt. Diane hopes for guests who “have a heart for the place,” and a “heart for history.” She says, “It feels like
