Highland Storm - Directed by Peter Gallant
Thursdays will transport the audience into Hillsborough Bay, PEI around 250 years ago, as the Annabella, the Edinburgh and the Falmouth arrive having carried families from their homeland to a new land with little more than the clothes on their backs. 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. The story of the Scots arriving on PEI will be performed by The College of Piping’s instructors and students and Highland Storm – directed by Peter Gallant, has been revamped for the 2021 season. 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. Prepare to sit tight and hold on…there’s a Storm coming!

On Tuesdays and Saturdays, Michael Pendergast will take the stage in an all new version of Pendy’s Pub, based on the popular cable television show from the late 1990’s. Spirited tunes, sudsy songs and tall tales will be served up straight by Pendy himself, and each show will include some of this Island’s favourite entertainers in the convivial atmosphere of a local tavern. With his house band, “The Keggers”, Pendy welcomes both regulars and stragglers with a wink and a smile and is quick to conjure a comical drinking song or an Irish ballad to pull at the heartstrings.
Saturday evenings spotlight an assortment of guest singers from all across PEI, bringing their big personalities and boisterous voices to the room. Tuesdays feature well established Island fiddlers with their particular and pleasing mix of traditional Irish, Scottish and Acadian tunes. No one night is exactly like the next except for the hands clapping, the toes tapping and the celebration of the best in East Coast culture!
