Happy Summer, Folks.
It’s beach weather and I am happy to be home on Prince Edward Island for the summer. We have two concert series opening this week. My son Patrick Bunston and I are returning to the beautiful Garden Theatre at The Prince Edward Island Preserve Company every Thursday, July 21 though August 18. Why not come early, have dinner, sample the preserves, walk in their beautiful gardens and enjoy the show in this stunning theatre overlooking the River Clyde? Showtime is 7:30 and tickets are $15 at the door.
We are having a fabulous summer at Rock Barra Retreat. We just wrapped up a week-long songwriting/art camp sponsored by The Canada Council and had participants from seven countries. There is still space left in my singing camp. See details below. Our Sunday night concert series starts this week too, and Patrick and I are doing the first week. Showtime is 7:30. Here’s the line-up for the rest of the summer:
Finley Mullally and the River Thieves on July 31

Richard Wood and Gordon Belsher on WEDNESDAY August 10
The Young Folk concert with a stellar line-up of talent on August 14
