JohnK came with the bagpipes, some music for to play!

That's pretty damn good.
Even though the band is from Newfoundland which i have no doubt Murph will remind us of very shortly.
Just what band comes from PEI that people would know?
I can't think of one.
I bet Murph will know the answer to that one too.

A song is still a song and a song is always appreciated.

My brother Pat aka Patty Murphy, also thanks you. Because, of course, the original is about celebrating his death. We like to play it on family gatherings if he gets out of line.

PEI has yet to produce any super-groups that have become casually recognizable in the U.S. market. Our total province's population is only 140,000 after all. That is just a neighborhood in a bigger city.

In the 80s we had "Haywire" who had a couple of #1 Canadian hits and a couple of other top 10. Basically a 1 or 2 album wonder though.

Lenny Gallant is probably our biggest name right now. A folk singer with a deep, recognizable voice. He tours worldwide and is a common name across Canada, Europe and other countries.

Like many places across Canada. We lay heavy claim to Stompin' Tom Connors. You prolly have to be Canadian to know that name though.

I'd be interested to know if any of you have heard of these names. Richard Wood, Barachoise, Alan Rankin, Meghan Blanchard, Tara MacLean (had a song on Coyote Ugly), Tim Chaisson, Catherine MacLennan or her father Gene MacLennan (who wrote songs for Anne Murray, Elvis and more), Two Hours Traffic, Paper Lions, Teresa Doyle? Just a few locally renowned artist who have decent Canadian exposure but are probably totally unknown in the US.

Still, we have a very thriving music scene. It's impossible to walk more than a block downtown without hearing live music coming from a pub or bar. However, when the whole city itself is only 35,000 people, you can be super popular and hardly known at the same time.

Sharon laments to me that you're the exact opposite grin.

As long as she is never 'late', all is well.

Jeebus, are we still celebrating Murph's birthday? Apparently, he's interning on the MSJ Continuous Birthday Program.

I enjoyed hearing about the PEI music scene, Murph. I'll try to look some of those folks up. "Charlottetown: The Austin of the Maritimes" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, though.

If your looking for a live music vacation....
2014 is a big celebration year here so the summer is ridiculously jammed with everything from a tall ship festival to wayyyy more concerts than we normally ever see. Many of them free!!

Here is about half the list, keeping to the more well known. Mostly all Canadians, with a couple of exceptions.

The Killers
Matt Mays
Lady Antebellum
Blake Sheldon
Hunter Hayes
Shania Twain
Sam Roberts Band
Sheepdogs
Serena Ryder
Paul Brandt
Matthew Good
Matt Anderson
Mariannas Trench
Bridgit Mendler
Death Cab for Cutie
David Myles
George Canyon
Tegan & Sarah

and to appease the Quebecers, they dug up Roch Voisine from somewhere. wink

Holy smokes! They're doing all that stuff for your birthday?!?!

What'd you do to piss off The Hip?

I didn't even think you were turning 50 this year. Congrats!
