The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Pete Richards will be tak­ing a break from run­ning P.E.I.’s monthly arts and en­ter­tain­ment mag­a­zine to play a rare show at the Trail­side in Mount Ste­wart this evening.

A guitarist and song­writer, he will be per­form­ing songs from a new, up­com­ing al­bum to be re­leased in the fall, as well as a few songs from his de­but al­bum, “The Women All Were Danc­ing” which he re­leased in 2015.

He will be joined by Matt Bridges on drums and Isaac Wil­liams on bass, with a spe­cial guest or two jump­ing up on stage.

“It has been great to see Pete per­form­ing his songs live,” says owner Pat Deighan. “A lot of difer­ent mu­si­cal styles mixed to­gether (and) very in­ter­est­ing to see per­formed live.”

Tick­ets are avail­able at www. trail­side.ca, Back Al­ley Mu­sic or call 902-394-3626. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with mu­sic start­ing at 8 p.m.

The group’s fea­tured fid­dler is brother-in-law Andy Doucette, mak­ing the per­for­mance a real fam­ily af­fair.
