Profile: Ashley Condon

by Jane Ledwell

It wasn’t Ashley Condon’s plan to launch a full-length album of songs (Can You Hear Me, with many collaborators) and a brewery (Montague’s Copper Bottom Brewing, with her husband Ken Spears) within weeks of each other in one busy fall.

Ashley has found two ways to deal with surprising synchronicities: hard work and relentless planning. “It took six years to

A vinyl revival has been taking place in the Western world over the past decade, and the music industry does love a good comeback story.

Perspective

Perspective
The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

The story of our winter so far: bare ground, skiff of snow, wind, rain, plus ten, minus fifteen, wind, rain, snow. Stoves and furnaces putting in long hours, working overtime, greedily gobbling up fuel. Frosty air stealing in all night long under shingles and between floorboards, and barging in through doors that open for a single moment. What a time. The Strait

Nick Doneff

Nick Doneff
Talking Bands

by Evan James Ceretti

Nick Doneff’s love for music started at a very young age. As a toddler, the Ontario-born, PEI-based singer-songwriter would go to the flower shop where his mother worked as he waited for the school bus. In the back of the shop there was a toy Mickey Mouse record player. He would sit and listen to various 45s, and his father would draw stars beside Doneff’s

Lucie Bellemare has fun with her art

Way Up West
by Jan Cox

It’s a different world from a small titling house caught up in the woods outside Abram’s Village to a “regular” home in Summerside, but artist Lucie Bellemare is finding her way. “If the roof was not about to cave in, I would still be there, in the woods,” remarked Lucie.

Born and raised in Alma, Lac St. Jean, Quebec, surrounded by wind

A gift of Island poetry: Julie Dennison

Curated by Deirdre Kessler

STORMY WEATHER, GEORGIAN BAY
after F. H. Varley, c. 1920  

You chose this vantage. Run with it: the wind—
from frail and clinging to the rock, to whatsoever
face a rippled world insinuates. Yes, run. Swirl
the cloak of many needles; green it green and,
reeling, ever greener; swing your sweeper to the
far-off, white-capped cohort, curling sage and wily
olive strokes

Fourteen stops

Adventures along the New Year’s Levee trail

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Levee Day 2018 was supposed to be a less boisterous affair. It happened on a Monday, after all. Surely some people would stay home for fear of the cold and a long Tuesday at work. But not only were this year’s levees well attended, the crowd is changing, and a new guard is forming that will help ensure one of

The Sunset Limited

McFadden2 

Review by Sean McQuaid 

Two McFaddens enter, one leaves. Not as grimly gladiatorial as it sounds, but still an accurate summary of the spectacle on offer at The Guild this January, where accomplished father-son acting duo William and Corin McFadden starred in AMS Entertainment’s production of The Sunset Limited, directed by Mahdi Selseleh. 

Written by acclaimed long-time
