Singer host­ing new mu­sic se­ries

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Gallery 18 in New Lon­don is host­ing a Mon­day evening mu­sic show called Is­land Song­book.

Host Michael Pen­der­gast, a well es­tab­lished Is­land en­ter­tainer, will in­tro­duce au­di­ences to Prince Ed­ward Is­land songs, old and new, from the sea and from the red clay roads, of the peo­ple and par­tic­u­lars unique to P.E.I.

"It won’t do the Is­land jus­tice un­less those in at­ten­dance have equal op­por­tu­nity to laugh and cry, sing along and clap along, hear a story or tell one," says Pen­der­gast.

The show will be held in the Car­riage House, one of the his­tor­i­cal build­ings on the Gallery 18 prop­erty.

With lo­cal art on the walls and church pews for seat­ing, Is­land Song­book prom­ises to be truly unique among the won­der­ful va­ri­ety of mu­si­cal shows this Is­land of­fers. Ev­ery song pre­sented, what­ever the cen­tury, is P.E.I. writ­ten and ev­ery story il­lu­mi­nates this Is­land’s var­ied flavours.

Also avail­able at each show is the new pic­ture book, This I Know, a fundrais­ing ef­fort for Hos­pice P.E.I. There will be op­por­tu­ni­ties each evening for book sign­ings. Gallery 18 is lo­cated at 10686 Route 6 in beau­ti­ful New Lon­don. Ad­mis­sion is at the door. Shows are at 7:30 p.m.
