Trailside Music Hall in Charlottetown has a full lineup this month. The following highlights a few of the many local and touring acts coming to the stage in July.

The Fleetwood Mac tribute band Gypsy will perform at Trailside on June 30 and July 1 and 2 at 8 pm. The songs of Fleetwood Mac transcend across three generations of music fans. The “Gypsy” Fleetwood Mac experience is a representation of the group’s hits, including Stevie Nicks duets with Don Henley and Tom Petty. The show repertoire includes “Dreams,” “Go your Own Way,” “Rhiannon,” “Don’t Stop,” “The Chain,” and more favourites.

The Fabulously Rich takes the stage on July 8 and 9 at 8 pm. The group is a live tribute to The Tragically Hip. The band formed in 2016 in Charlottetown, PEI. The idea came about when the news broke that Gord Downie had been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. The original plan was to reunite a group of old friends who began their music careers in a high school band known as Adam’s Eve and present a tribute to one of the bands they all loved and most frequently covered in their sets. 

Brad Milligan and Craig Fair bring A Night of The Eagles to the stage on July 15, 16 and 17 at 8 pm. From their earliest laid back grooves on hits like “Take It Easy” to the Ava Maria of 1970’s rock, “Desperado,” this night of music celebrates the country rock band The Eagles. The show is created, produced and directed by Craig Fair Music Productions.

Susan O’Neill and Irish Mythen will perform on July 20 at 8 pm. O’Neill has spent the last few years honing her craft as a solo performer. A songwriter of hidden depths, with a voice that is equal parts balm and blowtorch, she is a free spirit and a performer. The release of In The Game, her collaboration album with Mick Flannery, O’Neill received multiple nominations and was the biggest selling Irish independent record of 2021. Mythen’s latest release Little Bones has gained her recognition around the globe, including a 2020 JUNO nomination for Contemporary Roots Album of the Year, seven Music PEI 2020 nominations and two wins, and a Canadian Folk Music nomination for Solo Artist of the Year. Mythen’s live performances are a thing of raw power, emotion and a connection with her audience.

Myles Goodwyn headlines with Just Between You and Me LIVE on July 30 and 31 at 8 pm, bringing the story of April Wine and its long-time leader to the stage with a show of hit songs and conversation. Myles is joined live by longtime friend Jim Henman, also an original member of April Wine. In his memoir, Just Between You and Me, Goodwyn shares the story of his upbringing, first at home in rural Nova Scotia and then in the music business as the lead singer of one of Canada’s popular bands and Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductees, April Wine. His self-penned memoir made the 2018 Globe and Mail Bestseller list. 

Shows start at 8 pm with doors at 6:30 pm. Visit trailside.ca for tickets and more information.
