Monday Night Concerts

Two shows scheduled for July at Victoria Playhouse

The Monday Night Concert Series at Victoria Playhouse this summer features a lineup of primarily Maritime artists.

Alicia Toner
Alicia Toner

 Alicia Toner brings folk roots and pop/rock fusion to the Playhouse stage in Victoria on July 10. Toner has a soaring, emotive voice and earnest, heartfelt songwriting. She was classically trained on the violin and spent many years in the NB Youth Orchestra with whom she played Carnegie Hall. Her latest album, Joan (2021), earned her a Canadian Folk Music award for Solo Artist of the Year and nominations for two ECMA awards and seven Music PEI awards.

Morgan Davis

Blues musician Morgan Davis performs on July 17. The Detroit-born, Nova Scotia based JUNO-award winner has over half a century of experience and is a legend in the industry. Growing up in the ‘50s, he absorbed the music of the times—early rock and roll and rhythm and blues, along with the beginnings of the Motown sound. Davis began playing professionally in 1971, and learned from and played with artists like Sunnyland Slim and Johnny Shines. He also backed up Howlin’ Wolf’s guitar player, Hubert Sumlin, of 25 years. As a solo artist, Davis interprets the blues with a respect for its traditions. He plays electric, slide and 3-string cigar-box guitar.

The series continues in August with Lorne Elliot (7), Andru Branch & Halfway Tree (14), Jeanie & Charles (21), and Jabbour (28)

Concerts begin at 7:30 pm.
