The Guild Summer Festival’s Celebration Series continues in August with performances by Vince The Messenger, Shane Pendergast, and Ava & Lily.
An influential artist in the PEI hip-hop music scene, Charlottetown’s Vince The Messenger will be on stage August 7 at 7:30 pm at The Guild in Charlottetown. He recently won the 2021 Music PEI Rap/Hip Hop Recording of the Year Award for Nowhere 2 Grow.
Up-and-coming PEI folk artist Shane Pendergast will be on stage August 27 at 7:30 pm. Pendergast’s Maritime storytelling is seamlessly connected to his music and melodies. His songs are reminiscent of folk artists like Stan Rogers and Gordon Lightfoot. His sophomore album Second Wind was released in March 2021.
Charlottetown duo Ava & Lily will perform August 29 at 7:30 pm. Multi-instrumentalist twins, Ava and Lily Rashed both feel at home on the guitar, piano or fiddle, and their voices complement one another. The pair have recently released their single “Just Yesterday” (feat. Vince The Messenger), and they plan to release their second album this summer.
