Homing instinct
Profile: Emily Smith

by Jane Ledwell

The population of Victoria-by-the-Sea, PEI, increased from 104 to 107 in 2011 when Emily Smith, her husband and young son moved back to the community where she had grown up and where her parents, Pat Stunden Smith and Erskine Smith, founded the Victoria Playhouse.

After graduating from university, Emily moved as far away as possible from the hours (and income)

Spring lamb

Spring lamb
The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

Nothing says spring like a lamb. Its little bleat declares: “I’m alive so let’s go!” A Swiss family in the Cove has a whole barn full of sheep, so I thought I’d visit them and get fully charged with a dose of spring lamb.

The Mäders’ new barn has a domed plastic roof and plenty of room inside. Fredy and Elsbeth and son Levi cut trees from their woods, milled

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

I must admit, when Hopyard first opened in the former Lot 30 on Kent Street in Charlottetown I wondered how it was going to survive. Charlottetown is fairly saturated with restaurants to begin with. I had my doubts that its focus on craft beer and plates under $10 would cover the overhead costs in a large space downtown, even if it was full most nights. And

Talking Bands

by Evan James Ceretti

Crystal Kennedy is a minority in the Charlottetown music scene. She’s one of the very few—maybe the only—female DJ’s on PEI. “I would love for there to be more of us. I kind of stand alone.” From a young age, her interest in electronic music slowly developed while listening to hip hop. “I was fortunate that my parents didn’t really limit what I listened to. They

The case for beer

A new Buzz column focuses on the suds

The Brew
by Bryan Carver

Though we are just a few months into 2018, it is quickly shaping up to be a banner year for brewers and the people who enjoy their beer here on PEI. 

To some, this may seem like an overnight occurrence, but in all actuality it has taken decades to recover from a hangover induced by prohibition to get where we are today. Even with

A gift of Island poetry: John Smith

SIGNS OF LIFE ARE

Signs of life are everywhere. The garden
won’t stop growing. When we turned our backs, moss,
heather, thyme, violets, forget-me-nots, and strawberries
took over. As gardeners, they’ve proved among the best.

The text goes on repeating itself: the walls
are made of it. The dead were the designated
auditors, but since we’ve ceased to believe in them,
it’s become a way of life for the

PEI Symphony Orchestra

Review by Ivy Wigmore

On March 4, the PEI Symphony Orchestra presented “Dvořák 8 and More” under the direction of guest conductor Dinuk Wijeratne.

I love watching how conductors interact with the orchestra and Wijeratne is particularly fun. Described by the NY Times as “exuberantly creative,” the multi-talented composer / performer / conductor was physically almost balletic
