Ireland Meets Island

A celebration of traditional music in Souris and Charlottetown

(L–R): Tara Breen, Jim Murray and Pádraig Rynne

Souris Show Hall will present Ireland Meets Island: A Celebration of Traditional Music on October 15. A fusion of traditional Irish and Island melodies, the concert will feature musicians Breen, Rynne and Murray from County Clare, Jake Charron and Tim Chaisson from The East Pointers, and J.J. Chaisson and Darla MacPhee from the Chaisson family.  

Breen, Rynne and Murray are some of Ireland’s most acclaimed performers of traditional music. On this side of the Atlantic for the Celtic Colours Festival in Cape Breton, the trio will bring the spirit and passion of Irish traditional music to the Souris Show Hall stage with masterful performances on fiddle, accordion and guitar.

This concert is a testament to the universal language of music, transcending borders and connecting communities through the power of melody and rhythm. Audiences can expect an evening filled with toe-tapping tunes that celebrate the shared heritage of Ireland and Prince Edward Island.

Tickets are available online at or in person at the Evergreen Cafe or Second Time Around in Souris.

Breen, Rynne and Murray will also perform at the Benevolent Irish Society in Charlottetown on October 14 with Cian Ó Móráin, Mary MacGillivray, Colin Jeffrey and Luka Hall. Visit for tickets to that show.
