Trio reunites at Victoria Playhouse
Peter Richards, Chas Guay and Mike Mooney
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.
