Per­form­ers on stage tonight

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY -

Three per­form­ers are set to take the stage at the Trail­side Café & Inn in Mount Stewart tonight. Check out the de­tails on the con­cert that will fea­ture Katie McGarry, the May-Heming ways and Al Tuck from the story

Katie McGarry, the May­Hem­ing­ways and Al Tuck will be play­ing the Trail­side Café & Inn in Mount Stewart this evening.

McGarry’s latest al­bum, “Wait­ing On”, pro­vides a sat­is­fy­ing serv­ing of sweet vo­cals, tasty coun­try licks and con­tem­pla­tive lyrics. It re­ceived four 2015 Mu­sic P.E.I. award nom­i­na­tions, and she took home the award for coun­try record­ing of the year at the an­nual Mu­sic P.E.I. Coun­try Ju­bilee.

The May­hem­ing­ways is a duo that sounds more like a band. With an alt-coun­try, blue­grass and Ca­jun sound, the group is genre de­fy­ing yet fa­mil­iar and fea­tures a ro­tat­ing cast of in­stru­ments in­clud­ing ac­cor­dion, banjo and guitar with rhythm locked in with drums and foot pedal bass.

Bring up Tuck’s name to any Cana­dian mu­sic in­sider and the re­sponse is good. Feist sus­pects he might just be a liv­ing leg­end. Jason Col­lett called him the great­est song­writer of his gen­er­a­tion.

“He is an awe­some en­cy­clo­pe­dia of pop­u­lar mu­sic, a rov­ing trou­ba­dour fa­mil­iar with the in­side of nearly ev­ery bar and club from coast to coast, and af­ter al­most 20 years in the busi­ness is one of Canada’s true hid­den mu­si­cal trea­sures,” says a re­lease.

Doors and kitchen at 6:30 p.m. with mu­sic start­ing at 8 p.m. Tick­ets are avail­able at www.trail­side.ca, Back Al­ley Mu­sic or 902-676-3130.
