Christmas is coming…

In the calm before the metaphorical storm of Christmas (and any upcoming snow storms that might be arriving) we would like to wish the best of the season to you and yours. We have had a wonderful year of music making, and we would like to take a moment to appreciate and acknowledge you, our audience members. We thank you for your support, enthusiasm and encouragement, and we look forward to more entertaining times together in 2017!

If you would like one more concert before the end of the calendar year, please come join us at the Marigold Cultural Centre on Thursday, December 15th at 7:30pm.

Tickets are available on the Marigold Cultural Centre’s website:

Thank you again for all your support and we look forward to seeing you at the first Passport Series concert of 2017, January 29th at St. Paul’s Anglican church in Charlottetown!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just a quick note if you are planning on coming to the ASM ‘Old World meets New World’concert on Monday, October 12th: the concert is at 7:30pm, not 3:30pm as shows up on our Facebook event on some web browsers. 

And what are we Thankful for today? We’re thankful for our violist, Jeffrey Bazett-Jones, who comes over to PEI from Moncton to rehearse and perform with us. We’re so lucky to have such a great player and wonderful sound (and a quirky personality!) joining our fledgling ensemble. 

Hope to see you all on Monday night – enjoy your turkey dinner and then come on out to St. Paul’s to listen to the concert at 7:30pm!

The Concert is About to Begin

It is a warm August evening on the scenic south shore of Prince Edward Island. You are seated inside the beautiful historic Harrington House. Your hand is holding your favourite glass of wine. In front of you is the Atlantic String Machine, poised to escort you on a musical journey from baroque to romantic, mass to pop and beyond. This is an event you want want to miss, an intimate evening with Canada’s chamber band… The Atlantic String Machine

Hi everyone –

And thank you to those of you who made it out to our first afternoon concert, last Sunday, July 19th at the Haviland Club. It was a great chance for us to experiment with performing in the afternoon (which has a different vibe to it!) as well as a wonderful opportunity to revisit the music that we enjoyed performing in June to our sold out house!

We have lots of plans upcoming:

August 28th – we are excited to be part of the Classic Music Reignited Series, produced by Rob Oakie, which will include Vishten and the Atlantic String Machine playing Stephane Grappelli and Edith Piaf at the Watermark Theatre in Rustico, PEI. Tickets are available online, by phone (902 963 3963) or at the door for $25 plus tax
For more information, contact The Watermark Theatre!

August 29th – we will be performing a house concert at Harrington House at Rice Point ( – email for more information and to reserve tickets.

There are a few concert plans in the works for September and October – we will keep you posted as details emerge!

Thank you!

Many thanks to all of you who came out to hear our concert last night at St. Paul’s Anglican; it was so wonderful to see the church filled with audience members and feel your energy! All of us on stage were so pleased to put this program together for you; some new repertoire and some old favourites from the week before the Haviland Club. 
We are currently checking datebooks and concert locations for our next concert and will keep you posted when we find a suitable date! Currently thinking somewhere in mid – June…

Upcoming concert!

Hi everyone! We are so looking forward to this weekend’s concert at St. Paul’s Anglican church. The program will be a little bit different from the one presented last weekend at The Haviland Club, but will also include a few favourites from that evening. Plan on coming out and hopefully celebrating the return of spring weather and some beautiful music!
