Murray McLauchlan

Hourglass tour stops in Summerside and Charlottetown

Murray McLauchlan’s Hourglass tour will make two stops in PEI this month, with performances at Harbourfront Theatre in Summerside on October 20 and at Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown on October 21. Showtime is 7:30 pm.

 McLauchlan is a Canadian singer-songwriter with a career spanning over 50 years. He has released 20 albums and been awarded 11 JUNOs, and some of his songs are considered Canadian standards. McLauchlan also a painter, author, actor and radio host. He has been bestowed an Honourary Doctor of Laws and was appointed to the Order of Canada. 

For many years Murray’s touring had been restricted to Lunch At Allen’s, whose members also include Ian Thomas, Marc Jordan and Cindy Church. But with the release of Hourglass, he is back on the road treating concert-goers to a seamless blend of old and new.

 “As a songwriter I know that it’s not enough to sit in your kitchen and write. Your songs need to be heard,” shares McLauchlan. “Music is a communicative art and if it isn’t brought in front of people there is no way to tell if that end has been met.”
