Island Jubilee - MARCH 10, 2024 2
UPCOMING SHOW

The Island Jubilee next show is March 10, 2024

The Island Jubilee Old Time Radio Music Show continues with its exciting second season on Sunday, March 10th, 2024, 2PM with special guests Ashley Condon, Scott MacKay and Abi Marie at the Florence Simmons Performance Hall in Charlottetown, PEI. 

Raised between two potato fields on Prince Edward Island, our special guest Ashley Condon is the grandchild of Bill Leblanc, a Canadian country pioneer who once spent the night in jail with Hank Snow. Like pecan pie – sweet and nutty – Ashley has won audiences over with her larger-than-life stage presence and down-to-earth charm. Growing up on everything from old-time country to folk, blues and soul, her music resonates. Her most recent album “Can you Hear Me” garnered six Music PEI award nominations. She and her husband, Ken Spears, also own the award-winning PEI-based microbrewery and music venue, Copper Bottom Brewing.

From the sounds of slapback echo, twangy Telecasters and swooning pedal steel, it’s clear that Scott MacKay has an affinity for country music of the 1950s and ‘60s. But the singer/songwriter from Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island also has a sharp wit that shines through on the 10 original songs that comprise his latest ECMA award winning album Stupid Cupid, a collection that offers a fresh, modern take on classic country. His catalogue has over one million streams thanks to the track “Where the Enemy Sleeps” from MacKay’s album “Twin” which was used as the theme song for the true crime podcasts Over My Dead Body, and Joe Exotic: Tiger King, the latter inspiring the hit Netflix show Tiger King.  While based in Calgary, MacKay was also honored with multiple Calgary Music Award nominations and earned honorable placements in CBC’s Searchlight and other international songwriting competitions. With the success of Stupid Cupid, Scott MacKay is ready to take country music back to the future and place himself squarely in the conversation about Canadian roots music artists to keep a close eye on.

Abi Marie is a 15-year-old performer from Stratford PEI.  Abi started performing at the age of 3 and hasn’t left the stage since.  She took up step dancing at the age of 8 and performed on many stages all over PEI including Founders Hall, Spinnakers Landing and Island Storm to name a few, as well as many Charlottetown Islanders sporting events.  Abi’s step dancing performances have won her Star Performer of the Day, Highest Mark of the Day, and Most Promising Dancer at dance competitions throughout the Maritimes.

All performances are recorded for broadcast on Tantramar 107.9FM CFTA and previous recordings will also be made available on their website www.tantramarfm.ca.  Proceeds from the 50/50 draw and guitar raffle will be donated to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation at the end of the season.

The show is co-hosted by Nudie, Janet McGarry and her husband Serge Bernard, and the Jubilee all-stars include Thomas Webb on steel guitar, Bobby McIsaac on acoustic & electric guitar, Courtney Hogan-Chandler on fiddle, Johnny Ross on piano as well as Nudie on bass, and Serge on guitar, banjo & mandolin.
