The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

P.E.I. favourites Chas Guay, Mike Mooney and Pete Richards come to­gether for a spe­cial re­union con­cert Mon­day, Aug. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Vic­to­ria Play­house to per­form their orig­i­nal mu­sic and col­lab­o­ra­tions.

Guay is a singer/song­writer/ mu­si­cian who called the Is­land home for 35 years. He has recorded three al­bums of orig­i­nal songs and is a re­cip­i­ent of the ECMA award for Mu­si­cal Achieve­ment.

He has per­formed and recorded with many east coast and in­ter­na­tional artists and has con­trib­uted mu­sic to tele­vi­sion and film.

Mooney is an award-win­ning singer-song­writer from Char­lot­te­town. He started his mu­sic ca­reer with the Troubadors in the early 1970s, play­ing folk mu­sic in and around the Con­fed­er­a­tion Cen­tre.

He con­tin­ues to play with for­mer com­rades and on his own.

In the late 70s Mooney and Guay con­spired to start the sem­i­nal P.E.I. rock band Touch ‘n Gone, which brought in Richards on bass gui­tar.

Richards has had a mu­si­cal life that be­gan with a high school rock group and con­tin­ues to this day, in­ter­rupted only by decades of rais­ing a fam­ily and run­ning a busi­ness.

He has played on a num­ber of al­bums by Is­land per­form­ers and re­leased an al­bum of his own songs, “The Women All Were Danc­ing,” in 2015.

He now en­joys play­ing a lit­tle blue­grass, but con­tin­ues to write and record.

The trio is happy to re­unite for this spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion at the Vic­to­ria Play­house.
