Island Jubilee - April 14, 2024 (2)

The Island Jubilee next show is April 14, 2024

The Island Jubilee Old Time Radio Music Show will be celebrating its season finale on Sunday April 14th, 2024, 2PM with special guests Alicia Toner, Roger Stone, Janelle Banks as well as the Jubilee All Stars at the Florence Simmons Performance Hall in Charlottetown, PEI. 

Alicia Toner is a Rising Star in Canadian Music. A talented Americana singer songwriter based in Charlottetown, Alicia’s music is a fusion of pop, rock, folk, and Americana influences delivered with a vocal range, presence and authenticity that resonates deeply with her audience. She was immersed in music from a young age, singing since childhood and receiving classical training on the violin. Alicia’s musical journey led her to become a member of the esteemed New Brunswick Youth Orchestra, showcasing her skills at renowned venues like Carnegie Hall. Alicia went on to release her first cd entitled “I Learned the Hard Way” in 2017 to critical acclaim. Her latest release “Joan” was an unexpected explosion onto the Canadian Music scene. Beyond her musical artistry, Alicia has been open about sharing her personal mental health struggles online. Through a project titled “Dangerous Home,” she candidly discusses topics like social anxiety and body image issues to contribute to the ongoing conversation around mental health.

Roger Stone’s roots are from Richmond County, Cape Breton. His musical influences included mid 70’s Rock, Country-Rock, Folk, Bluegrass as well as Traditional music of his surroundings. In early days, Roger and his friends Cyril MacPhee and Harold Davidson joined forces to become the much-loved Cape Breton band Brakin’ Tradition. What followed was a 40-year career in music that saw many national and international appearances as far away as the United Arab Emirates in such groups as Miller’s Jug, Breton and the ever-popular McGinty. His collaborations with McGinty have become a lasting part of our rich Maritime music tapestry. When not on the road, Roger kept a busy teaching schedule, passing on the rich traditions of his early surroundings to new generations. In 2022, Roger, Cathie and Mr. Finley (their beloved morkie dog) settled in Meadowbank, PEI and now enjoys select appearances as well as musical collaborations with friends, and also continues teaching banjo, guitar and various other instruments and found a whole new group of young students enthusiastic about Traditional music here on his new Island home.

A step dancing favourite of our show, Janelle Banks will be joining us to cap off our second season. An accomplished champion step dancer from Springvale with over 20 years of experience in the dance world, she has established herself as a top competitor and performer. Janelle has taken part in numerous dance competitions across Canada and has won many awards for her exceptional performances including the national dance competition and world cup in Quebec last July. She has also had the opportunity to dance at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom parade. Janelle has been a part of the Charlottetown Festival’s outdoor amphitheater dance show at the Confederation Centre of the Arts for the past two seasons and she is also an accomplished choreographer for several children’s music theatre productions.

All performances are recorded for broadcast on Tantramar 107.9FM CFTA and previous recordings will also be made available on their website Proceeds from the 50/50 draw and guitar raffle that have accumulated throughout the season will be presented to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation at this show and officials from Long & McQuade our sponsors, as well as the Foundation will be on hand for the presentation.
