"We are an island, a rock in a stream... we are a people, as proud as there's been..." The lyrics of Kenzie MacNeil's, "We are an Island" come to mind when we think of this stellar show. Cape Breton, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland will all come together in this celebration of rich island cultures. Buddy MacDonald, both a local and international favourite, has been performing for over thirty five years. He is no stranger to stages across Canada and the United States as well as Scotland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Germany, Switzerland and Holland. Newfoundland's pride and joy, Jim Payne and Fergus O'Byrne are two of Newfoundland’s most respected performers who combine instrumental prowess and humorous repartee, to cover a broad spectrum of Newfoundland folk culture, including songs, stories and dance tunes. Joining these veteran performers will be Hailee LeFort of Cape Breton, along with Ward MacDonald and Brent Chiasson of Prince Edward Island. Hailee plans to have her newly released debut album on hand for the festival as well, which features these Prince Edward Island musicians.
