UPDATE MARCH 19, 2020: NEW DATE. We have a new date for Rose Cousins' hometown ‘BRAVADO’ album launch show! Rose will be LIVE @ the Centre on October 24, 2020! Tickets are now on sale online and by phone. All previously purchased tickets will be honoured.? UPDATE MARCH 16, 2020: SHOW POSTPONED. Confederation Centre of the Arts box office staff will be reaching out directly to ticket holders over the coming days. Ticket holders may also contact the box office at 902 566-1267 or 1 800 565-0287, or by email at email@example.com. --- Come celebrate Rose Cousins' latest album, 'Bravado', in Charlottetown's finest listening room, the Confed Centre Mainstage, on March 21! ? Sponsored by Purity Dairy The life of a singer-songwriter can be lonely, but Juno Awards-winning Islander Rose Cousins believes that it doesn’t have to be that way. When a Cousins performance ends, all those present are linked—a group of strangers who gathered for one night, moved by the same moments in her stirring songs. The Pride of Kensington, P.E.I., Rose will release her new album world-wide on February 21. The award-winning songwriter describes the album as the sound of a heart trying to open. “It explores the complication of emotion, its irrational tendencies, and its wisdom,” she offers. “It invites us to feel the courage it takes to be vulnerable.” Opening the show is John Paul White (The Civil Wars), who has cultivated a music career in Nashville for two decades; first as a songwriter for a major publisher, then as half of The Civil Wars (a groundbreaking duo that won four Grammy Awards before disbanding in 2012), now as a solo artist. White's 2019 album 'The Hurting Kind' is a stunning album that draws on the lush, orchestrated music made in Nashville in the early 1960s.Find out more »
Rose Cousins https://www.rosecousins.com/ John Paul White http://www.johnpaulwhite.com/ Tickets >>> http://bit.ly/RoseMAR20 ***POSTPONED*** Wilmot Church *** Bravado is a record for those who struggle with loneliness and those wishing they had more time alone. It’s for those attempting to make their hearts go in more than one direction and those trying to make it go in just one. It’s for those who present a version of themselves to the world that doesn’t quite match how they feel inside. It’s for those who feel misunderstood or unseen. It’s for those who have a hard time saying what they feel, who hide or can’t let themselves off the hook. It’s for those asking, “is this it?” and questioning if the character they play in the movie of their lives is authentic or just a role they’ve accepted. It’s for those who have a hard time asking for help and for those desperate for and terrified of change. More here: https://www.rosecousins.com/mediaFind out more »

In a realm where poets rarely intersect with stardom, the Opening Ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Olympics introduced us to Shane Koyczan. With a collective "wow" across Canada and beyond, we found the poet of our generation. The world took notice when Shane's influential, anti-bullying, To This Day Project video went viral in early 2013 with over 14 million views and counting. He has received 5 star reviews for his performances around the globe. Winner of the US Slam Poetry Championship and the Canadian Spoken Word Olympics, Koyczan is truly an extraordinary talent that has blown the dust off of the traditional designation "poet".

Due to the unprecedented circumstances surrounding COVID-19 and ban on public gatherings – Joel Plaskett has postponed his Spring 2020 Canadian Tour. All tickets will be honoured for the new shows and refunds are also available at point of purchase. The new date for Joel Plaskett is November 14, 2020. You will be receiving a new ticket link in advance of the new date. If you are unable to attend the show on November 14th, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a refund. In a world increasingly defined by disconnection under the guise of digital bonding, Joel Plaskett is an analogue holdout, making his most solid connections the old-fashioned way, through the electrifying, uplifting experience of his live shows. That doesn’t mean that heading out to get sweaty with a few hundred fellow good-timin’ strangers at your town’s most storied music venue is the only way to experience Plaskett’s tunes—the warmth and care with which he works shines through on his albums, self-produced and recorded to tape at his New Scotland Yard studio in downtown Dartmouth, whether you’re experiencing them on vinyl in your dim-lit living room or through headphones via MP3. But there’s no better spot than under the bright lights of the stage to catch one of Nova Scotia’s favourite sons, shredding in reverie alongside his band, The Emergency, harmonizing with his dad, Bill or spinning tales and songs on his own. You can’t make a reputation for yourself as a world-class entertainer without hitting the road, and there are few musicians who have tramped the globe like Plaskett has. That journey started in the early ‘90s with the playful and explosive Thrush Hermit and their signature neon ROCK & ROLL sign and hasn’t stopped (in fact, the Hermit’s bright red light is soon to be lit up again with a cross-Canada reunion tour kicking off fall 2019). For over a quarter century, Plaskett has delivered the masses intimate, scrappy singer-songwriter fare (In Need of Medical Attention, La De Da); incendiary riff-rock (Down at the Khyber, Truthfully, Truthfully); conceptual, operatic epics and off-kilter feats of musical stamina (Ashtray Rock, Three, Scrappy Happiness); and a collection of left-leaning folk partly inspired by the genre’s British masters with his father (Solidarity). The last album he released under his own name, 2015’s The Park Avenue Sobriety Test, showed him at the top of his game, using all the sounds in a wildly diverse musical toolbox. Rest assured that what’s coming next will be unexpected, a new evolution for an artist who’s never stopped shifting and exploring his medium. Joel’s musical contributions go far beyond his own music, too. Besides producing most of his own records since 1999, he’s also set up shop behind the console at The New Scotland Yard studio, along with engineer Thomas Stajcer, to help craft a number of critically-acclaimed records for others. Working with artists like Jimmy Rankin, Two Hours Traffic, David Myles, Shotgun Jimmie, Dennis Ellsworth, Sarah Slean, Old Man Luedecke, Dave Marsh, Colleen Brown and longtime collaborator Mo Kenney has led to numerous awards for production and turned the studio into a popular destination for artists looking to make their mark. Out front, just a stone’s throw from the studio, lies The New Scotland Yard Emporium, where Plaskett partnered with Halifax mainstay Taz Records to bring a great selection records to his adopted hometown of Dartmouth, helping shape the future of Portland Street by building a spot music fans can hang out and grab a coffee or beer while they dig for records. Setting his impressive catalogue aside, Plaskett’s legacy is in those communal experiences, the ones that have fans old and new belting out his songs for a couple hours before they stumble wide-eyed onto the sidewalk outside the club, buzzing with the life-affirming electricity that gets generated between the stage and the audience. ------------------ This show will have no opener. We have the pleasure of TWO sets from Joel Plaskett! Joel’s band includes members of The Emergency and Mo Kenney and they will be playing two sets. Mo Kenney is featured in the context of Joel’s show but will not play a solo set. ------------------ This show will offer a mix of seating and standing room. Doors @ 7:30pm, Show @ 8:00pm Advance tickets $28, Door tickets $35Find out more »
*This show has been postponed, and will now take place on Tuesday, November 17th, 2020. All previously purchased tickets will be honoured. **PLEASE NOTE THAT FESTIVAL PLACE IS NOW CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL June 15 2020, AT THE EARLIEST. Known as one of Canada's best blues musicians, Colin James is a 6x JUNO Award winner with 17 nominations, 20x Maple Blues Award winner and has performed alongside Stevie Ray Vaughn, Bonnie Raitt, Carlos Santana, Albert King, Lenny Kravitz, Buddy Guy, The Chieftans and many more. His latest album "Miles to Go" includes nine new covers of his favourite artists (Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Blind Willie Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Little Willie John, Robert Johnson, etc.) and two originals. So much of Colin James' career has pointed him to this moment: joyfully tangled up in blues, which, as he notes, "is the only genre where you can maintain a young profile at the age of 53."
