Prince Edward Island has a proud tradition of producing some of the country’s most talented and respected singer songwriters; this fall, we are delighted to be welcoming a carefully hand-picked selection of them onto our stage – and we’re inviting you to join them!

Join us for this intimate, in-the-round concert series which reimagines the relationship between artist and audience; you will be seated on the famous stage of Summerside’s Harbourfront Theatre, surrounding the performer.

Don’t miss this rare and unique opportunity to be part of a special community for an afternoon, where you will see and hear some of the island’s most acclaimed singer songwriters up close, while also experiencing Harbourfront Theatre in an unusual and exciting way.

Each concert in the series is curated and hosted by award-winning island songwriter Meaghan Blanchard, who will be joined by another two singer songwriters.

Capacity is strictly limited for each concert, so get your tickets while you can!
