Upcoming Events – The College of Piping And Celtic Performing Arts of Canada

Update from The Celtic Performing Arts Centre for Ticket Holders

With cases growing in the other Maritime provinces, Public Health and Premier Dennis King have made a decision to temporarily withdraw from The Atlantic bubble in order to keep Islanders safe and healthy and hopefully avoid a COVID outbreak, which would tax our healthcare system.

With case numbers currently remaining small on PEI, our upcoming events will proceed as scheduled and we will continue to follow all of the PEI Public Health orders closely, to do everything we can to keep event attendees safe while in the Celtic Performing Arts Centre for the upcoming shows.  We ask that guests follow the current Public Health orders when entering our facility by wearing a mask the entire time that they are indoors, use hand sanitizer and maintain a 6’ distance between groups when entering and exiting the building.

Currently, the Confederation Bridge is scheduled to reopen, allowing PEI to rejoin the Atlantic bubble, on December 7th, 2020.  If this does not happen and we need to cancel any shows, all tickets will be refunded.

Should any PEI Public Health orders change that affects our ability to have attendees safely come into our building, we will reach out to ticket holders.

In the meantime, we are looking forward to welcoming you to The College of Piping and entertaining you safely!

Joining him will be diversely skilled musicians, Brad Fremlin and Jon Matthews. This trio of talented, multi instrumentalists will take you on a journey of exciting jigs and reels, masterfully layered with captivating Celtic folk songs, a rousing drum salute, PEI step dancers: Alexis MacLaren, Marlys MacLaren & Abby Rogers, and even a hauntingly beautiful piece performed on a handsaw.

For more than 3 decades, Richard WOOD has blown away audiences around the world with his uplifting and energetic brand of music. His CFMA nominated, and ECMA award winning 8th album, UNBROKEN, mastered by the Legendary Bob Ludwig, has reviewers praising it as some of his best work to date!

MacLean’s Magazine named Richard one of the Top 100 Canadians to watch in
the 21st Century, but they forgot to mention that it would be so darned hard to sit still while we watched and that his boundless energy would leave us out of breath and still wanting more!
