The Monday Night Concert Series is back at Victoria Playhouse in Victoria-by-the-Sea this summer with an eclectic mix of emerging and established artists. Almost all performers are from PEI.
The long-running series kicks off July 12 with perennial favourites Gordie MacKeeman and his Rhythm Boys. This roots quartet features all-star pickers and singers, with everything from down-home country to reckless rockabilly to intricate bluegrass, played with high energy and a bit of infectious humour.
On July 19, Brandon Howard Roy will captivate his audience with a big voice and electric stage presence cultivated from a life in theatre.
Don Ross and Brooke Miller are back at the Playhouse on July 26. This husband and wife team pairs Don’s internationally renowned guitar skills with Brooke’s ineffably beautiful voice, and she’s no stranger to the fretboard.
Lovely Nelly will bring traditional music for modern times to the stage August 2 with their lively interpretations of Celtic music from Scotland, Ireland, and lesser known regions.
On August 9, Americana singer-songwriter Alicia Toner will charm her audience with her heartfelt songs and moving, emotive voice.
August 16 will feature Canadian folk music singer-songwriter Catherine MacLellan. Her seventh album Coyote, is a travelogue through heartbreak, loss and the joy of life.
Justyn Thyme will take the stage August 23. This rising singer-songwriter has a mellow acoustic pop sound, reminiscent of Jack Johnson. His songs are inspired by extensive world travel.
Closing out the season on August 30, The Lumber Jills make the trip from New Brunswick to the Playhouse stage. The young musicians will take their audience on a guided tour of traditional Old time fiddle music from their home province.
