‘Fid­dling Fish­er­man’ plays re­treat

J.J. Chais­son to take the stage at Rock Barra

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY -

J.J. Chais­son, a well-known P.E.I. multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist and en­ter­tainer, will play Rock Barra Artist Re­treat Sun­day as part of the Songs of the North­Side Con­cert Se­ries.

The con­cert se­ries runs ev­ery Sun­day un­til Aug. 27. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tick­ets are at the door, $10 for adults and spe­cial dis­counts for chil­dren and fam­i­lies. Farm­ers are free.

The Songs of the North­side Con­cert Se­ries is a trib­ute to P.E.I.’s north­east­ern cul­tural roots of sto­ry­telling, song­writ­ing and mu­sic, a tra­di­tion of which Chais­son, who is also known as the “Fid­dling Fish­er­man”, is a stew­ard.

A well-loved mu­si­cian whereever he trav­els, even on his fish­ing boat, “Chais­son a Dream”, this will be his first per­for­mance at Rock Barra Artist Re­treat.

The con­cert hall is a rus­tic, vaulted ceil­ing cre­ation orig­i­nally built for a film set. Af­ter much re­fur­bish­ment and artis­tic ef­fort, the 50-seater of­fers down home hos­pi­tal­ity, tea and cook­ies at break time and in­ti­macy with per­form­ers.

Rock Barra Artist Re­treat is lo­cated in Rock Barra, 10 min­utes north of Souris. For more in­for­ma­tion or de­tailed di­rec­tions, visit www.rock­bar­raretreat.com.
