Lit­er­ary laughs

Buddy Wa­sis­name and the Other Fellers go to print

The Compass - - PORTHTE - BY KEVIN HIGGINS

Shake­speare. Keats. Poe. Aris­to­tle. At­wood. Wa­sis­name.

There’s only one com­mon el­e­ment con­nect­ing these great names — lit­er­a­ture.

And while the first five have long made a name for them­selves in the lit­er­ary world, the sixth is just kick­ing off, if noth­ing else, what will be a gut- bust­ing foray onto peo­ple’s book­shelves.

“In­stead of be­ing mounted on the book­shelf with Shaw, Mil­ton or Shake­speare, we’ll prob­a­bly go on the other end with the chil­dren’s au­thors,” said Kevin Black­more, aka Buddy Wa­sis­name of Buddy Wa­sis­name and the Other Fellers. The group, which has been per­form­ing for 18 years, also in­cludes Char­lot­te­town’s Wayne Chaulk and Ray John­son, as the Other Fellers. John­son was born in Job’s Cove.
