Whew, what a summer it’s been! Amongst all the gardening and beach swimming and nights at the theatre (and someone in the violin section got a puppy!), we’ve managed to cram an awful lot of music making in. We were thrilled to resonate the beautiful acoustics of Historic St. Mary’s as part of the Under the Spire Music Festival with both our pals in the PEISO Brass and our good friend Rose Cousins. We joined up with Rose again at the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival, where we also got back to jamming with festival friends Dave Gunning, Rachel Beck, Les Fireflies, Anna Ludlow, Rosemary Lawton, and so many more. Plus we had the pleasure of some hometown collaborations at the Small Halls Festival with Nomad and Brielle Ansems. Been filling up the metaphorical gas tank, for sure.
And we have so much to look forward to! We’re releasing a brand new album in October full of all original compositions. The music is inspired by the life and work of architect William Critchlow Harris and it’s coming out on World Architecture Day! There are some fun plans to explore some of his Charlottetown buildings in the works, so stay tuned for those. Then, our next season will kick off in November with a string of special guests. Plus we’ve got trips to Truro and Halifax planned. Check out all the details on the IN CONCERT page, and we’ll see you at the show!
