Gary Evans and Alan Buchanan, two members of the “Four Tellers,” along with a cast of Island musicians, have created a new show titled “Two Tellers and Tunes.” This production will be performed at Kings Playhouse in Georgetown every Monday evening at 7:30 pm, starting July 8 and running until September 30.

“It’s going to be a great show,” assures Evans. “Since there’s only half of us, we have to be twice as good.”

Buchanan and Evans will entertain every week with the full array of characters and stories that have come to define their brand of entertainment as “the real Island deal.” 

“We’re so excited to have these guys back for the summer,” says John Connolly, executive director at the Playhouse. “Gary and Alan are carrying on an art form that is quickly dying on PEI. At one time, storytelling was the heart and soul of local culture on PEI. The storyteller and the fiddler were as essential to a community as the clergy and the doctor.”

Audiences will be treated to both storytellers and fiddlers. Joining Buchanan and Evans on stage are Island singer-songwriters, Norman Stewart and Maxine MacLennan, along with fiddler Courtney Hogan-Chandler, as well as occasional guest musicians.
