The Beaconsfield Historic House Winter Concert Series concludes this month with a lineup of Island performers. This exclusive fundraising event promises an intimate musical experience, with only 15 tickets available for each show. Proceeds from this concert series will directly support Beaconsfield Historic House’s ongoing commitment to preserving history and promoting the arts in Charlottetown.

Vocalist and trombonist Gaige Waugh will perform on March 1. Featured by the UPEI concert choir as a soloist, Waugh most recently made his debut in opera as Sorastro in the UPEI production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute.

On March 8, Acadian vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Christina MacLean and guitarist and bassist Robin Ettles will play a range of traditional Acadian songs, folk and covers.

Julie Pellissier-Lush will entertain on March 15 with drumming, singing, poetry, and stories about her life and the rich and beautiful culture of the Mi’kmaq of PEI.

Lucy Farrell will be performing on March 22. Odd, unconventional melodies and poetic, sophisticated songwriting, and the clarity of Farrell’s voice are made elegant with sparse and careful accompaniment. 

The venue has parking on site and is wheelchair accessible at the rear entrance. Tours of Beaconsfield will be available from 6–6:30 pm as a part of the evening’s entertainment.
