Ebb & Flow: Connecting Canadians Along the Moving River

When The Dunk’s owner Hal Mills passed away suddenly in 2015, it felt like the end of an era for the popular house concert destination in Breadalbane, Prince Edward Island. Then a member of the Friends of The Dunk had an idea and after brainstorming with Board members, the Friends submitted an ambitious project to the Department of Canadian Heritage’s Canada 150 Fund. As a result, The Dunk will host Ebb & Flow: Connecting Canadians Along the Moving River, a residency and concert series. The project will bring together musicians, artists and the community to reflect and be inspired by The Dunk’s unique atmosphere and rich tradition of nurturing the arts community.

“I’m very excited about Ebb & Flow”, says Melanie Mills, Hal’s daughter and proprietor of The Dunk, “Dad would be delighted that The Dunk continues to be a destination for songwriters to get inspired and share their unique gifts.” Planning is now underway to schedule the residencies and select the artists who will benefit from this unique, rustic and inspirational environment.

“Breadalbane is a remarkable community”, states Catherine MacLellan, President of the Friends of The Dunk and a JUNO award winning singer-songwriter. “The Dunk has helped bring artists from all over the country and beyond to our small but vibrant community, and I’m glad to see this continue.”

The residencies will bring in one artist/group for a length of 4–5 days, who will work on-site to create new material based on their residencies theme and the local surroundings. Each residency will close with a public performance at The Dunk. Artists will be provided lodging at The Dunk, per diems and a small honorarium of $1200. Reasonable travels costs will be covered. Ebb & Flow will kick off with an opening ceremony and concert on National Aboriginal Day, June 21. 

Available residency dates and themes are as follows: 

August 16–20: This Land is Your Land, This Land is My Land: a focus on organic food, farms and the environmment.
September 13–17: Wisdom from our Elders: Looking back to look forward
October 18–22: Who are we Becoming: Moving forward together

Submissions are now open and applications can be requested from Melanie Mills, Project Manager, via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
