Highland Storm - Directed by Peter Gallant

Doors open at 7:00 pm, show starts at 7:30 pm

Highland Storm – an exhilarating evening of Celtic music and dance that will captivate the audience with stunning displays of the Highland and step dancers and breathtaking sounds from the pipes and drums.  Combine that with the haunting melodies of beautiful traditional songs and the consuming fire of the fiddle, this will be a moving authentic experience.

The audience will be transported to a pivotal time in PEI over 250 years ago, when 3 ships; the Annabella, the Edinburgh and the Falmouth, arrived having carried families from their homeland in Scotland to a new land with little more than the clothes on their backs. As well, with an added scene this year, we celebrate the 250th anniversary of the Alexander transporting the Glenaladale Settlers to PEI.

Imagine arriving on these shores in the bleak autumn, having to clear land, cut wood and build a home in order to survive the unforgiving winters of PEI. What would that first year be like?

The story of the Scots arriving on PEI will be performed by The College of Piping’s instructors and students and featuring fiddler Gilbert Arsenault and vocalist Christine Gallant. Highland Storm is directed by Peter Gallant.

Prepare to sit tight and hold on…there’s a Storm coming!

SEARCHING FOR ABEGWEIT: The Island songs & stories of Lennie Gallant

Doors open at 7:00 pm, show starts at 7:30 pm

SEARCHING FOR ABEGWEIT: The Island Songs & Stories of Lennie Gallant, features his original works about Prince Edward Island (Abegweit),written over the span of his extensive 14 album career. Often referred to as Gallant’s “Love letter to the Island”, the multimedia show also features projected films and hundreds of unique paintings by his celebrated artist sister, Karen Gallant, and explores magnificent themes and legends of which only Abegweit could boast .

The show is by times hilariously funny, extremely poignant, informative, rocking and reeling, and offers an exciting musical window into the island’s past, present, and future.

With over 180 performances and a sold out Eastern Canadian tour under its belt, SEARCHING FOR ABEGWEIT, is considered a major ‘MUST SEE’ show that has had fans from all over the continent returning for multiple viewings. A much celebrated songwriter and consummate performer, Gallant is remounting this legendary show this summer with his current stellar band members, Patricia Richard, Keelin Wedge and Julien Robichaud. Mi’kmaq singer Hubert Francis also joins the band on screen for the powerful title song, Searching For Abegweit.

This multimedia production is a unique hit Island experience NOT to be missed!
